We had the pleasure to have Captain Brian today for our tour. He was very informative and his knowledge of the surroundings made the tour well worth it. It was one of those things you do in life and are glad you did it.

Seems to be so many reviews that say how great Captain Johnny is. Well we got Captain James. I certainly wouldn't be raving about him, however the experience was still good. We did the 1 hour mangrove tour and the scenery was amazing, saw plenty of gators and other animals and whizzed around at top speed. My only negative comment... More

Really knowledgable guy, Captain Jonny. Spent an excellent hour with him last week, my family and I. Saw six crocs. Tour HIGHLY recommended.....their Boardwalk attraction.....not so much. Thought it was a bit cruel having so many crocs in close proximity to each other.

We did the 2 airboat rides and enjoyed them very much. Exhilarating experience, and Johnny went out of his way to give us an excellent experience. He is very knowledgable about the area and wildlife. We were so pleased we took this tour.

We did the 1 hour mangrove tour. Saw plenty of alligators up close, some racoons and even a manatee with her baby. Loved the speed through the mangroves and turns out in the open. Great tour.

Came down fro DC for some R&R and a bit of adventure. CAPT. JOHNNIE delivered on the adventure!!!! He gave a great airboat ride through the mangroves, and he was totally knowledgeable about anything and everything we saw. Very few things actually are as good as I hope. This was actually better! Well done to CAPT. JOHNNIE and Jungle Erv.... More
