We went on this 1,5 hours boattrip, they promised us to be seeing mamals, dolphins, birds and many more. The weather turned bad, but there were boats coming back and no information about the sight and weather. Our captain drove with us in the middle of the fog, even though you could see from far away, that there`s no visibility... More

My wife and I took the 10,000 Islands tour and it was wonderful. The tour lasts about 2 hours. Even though it might be a warm day, take a jacket or sweatshirt. You'll need it as you tour the islands and enjoy he wildlife. Our captain and tour guide was excellent, slowing and stopping so we could watch the Dolphins... More

We visited Everglades National Park at the Everglades City entrance. The visitors center is not very large, so taking one of the boat tours is really the only way to get a real feel for the area. The boat tour is not led by national park rangers--it is run by a for-profit company, so you don't get the education you... More

Despite unusually low tides, Captain Jake provided an excellent tour of the mangrove wilderness area of Everglades National Park. Jake was very knowledgeable and congenial. There were several opportunities to view wildlife. Learned much about the area including history. Highly recommended.

I experienced the "Gato Park" attraction Airboat trip , I really enjoyed it. US$23 for the entrance, not trip excellent, crocodile show - 9 /10 , a lot of talk no action, the snake show only 1 snake , just poor, then another US$3 for a photo with a baby croc . I think every thing is base on money.... More

We took the 11am thousand island tour with captain Bob. The boat was absolutely at capacity so I worried about being able to see. The captain made sure we all had a chance to see the items of interest. A very large pod of dolphins appeared. The captain was very knowledgable about dolphin behavior and was able to anticipate their... More

This was the highlight of our trip. There was so many Dolphins and other wildlife to see. The tour was wonderful, fun, exciting and informative. Both my kids got to steer the Boat and still talk about it. Well worth the drive to get there--family from Illinois!

We took this tour at 5:00 PM, the last tour of the day, because we wanted to see the mangroves, the dolphins, and especially the sunset. We were not disappointed in any way, even though we did not see manatees. The dolphins were numerous as were the pelicans. Captain Gary and Willard were very knowledgeable, and the narrative given was... More
