Our airboat tour was the perfect mix of speed and comfort, he is a very experienced airboat captain and is in complete control of his vessel. He taught us about the local history and introduced us to... More

Capt Steve is a larger than life character with a persona to match. He's engaging and will fast become your friend, giving invaluable insight to the scenic places you visit. Before you know it you'll be learning more about the Everglades and the creatures that inhabit them than you thought possible. Capt Steve, having been born and raised in area,... More

My family and I had the buggy and airboat tour. Captain Steve is officially part of our family now. My husband was dead set against any tour of this type (especially water) but when I showed him videos of Captain Steve he agreed to "try it". WE LOVED IT! We did the buggy tour in the everglades and it was... More

He is a local gladesman who is very knowledgeable with the local history and wildlife of the area. He is very personable and took the time to make sure all our questions were... More

As Captain Otis told us, "What happens in the Everglades, stays in the Everglades," so my review will be brief. We decided to take our kids to experience some of the natural beauty of this great state. We chose Captain Steve's Swamp Buggy Adventures because it got such great reviews. It was a wonderful day and Captain Otis was the... More

This is not a road side tour ... this is an Everglades Adventure that is worth the time. My family, consisting of two adults and 3 grown (teenage kids) went with Steve for a 2 1/2 hour trip in the Everglades which was terrific. The weather was great. He picked us up at a remote location, arriving with his airboat... More
