If you are looking for a speeding boat ride , may be you will like it But if you are looking for a nature experience with discovering of the wild life, not the place to go not so much respect for the wild life And so overpriced. Will not recommend it !

Jonny was a excellent boat operator and was a very knowledgeable tour guide. Not much wildlife to see but that was due cool temps ect. We did get to see many gators on our trip out. Jonny directed us where to go. Thanks Johny!

Our captain (Johnny) was really informative and an excellent driver! We had a blast driving through only a few inches of water at about 40 mph.

We were the first tour of the day. The captain (Brian) was very friendly and knowledgeable. He made our trip fun and enjoyable. It was neat going through the mangrove tunnels. We saw some wildlife, including a manatee in the bay, several species of birds and some very tame racoons!

We had a combo 2 hours tour, Mangrove tunnel and 10000 islands, plus boardwalk tour. Mangrove tunnel was quite good, the plants are amazing, we saw some herons and other birds, and a group of raccoons coming near the boat to get food from the captain. We also had our dose of high speed run on the air boat. This... More

My wife & I with another couple did this the other day. It was an exiting ride at times but we didn`t see nearly as much wildlife as we`d hoped for. As it turned out, as "Captain Johnny" explained, it was due to unusual weather patterns bringing more salt water into the glades forcing the gators to migrate earlier than... More

We really had a great time, Johnny was our guide and he really took the time to teach us about the everglades, as well he drove the boat like a real pro! We felt safe, and had a great time. We didn't see any alligators but this was something we were informed would be the case in january.

This is not a sedate little drive through the Everglades to see raccoons. Nope, it's a fast, full-throttle thrill ride through skinny alleys in the mangroves. We loved it. (Well, my wife was a little less thrilled than me because she would prefer to go slow enough to stop and give all the wildlife names.) The captains all seem to... More

Captain Brian gave us an awesome tour. He was very personable, and informative. This is the second tour we have taken with Capt. Bryan and we have received the same outstanding service on each tour. We recommend Capt. Brian to anyone looking for a airboat tour.
