Excellent excellent excellent! We had a fantastic time on the airboat tour. Our guide, Eric, was extremely knowledgeable, genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about the everglades environment. Although there was just me and my husband on the tour, he didn't rush it - excellent value for money at $27.50 each. Got to see lots of alligators including babies, other wildlife and... More

We picked this spot to go on a airboat ride because it was no so commercial, it turned out to be the best I have ever been on. The guide was friendly and funny, he was very informative! We were super close to several alligators and saw many babies too. He did not rush us and answered all of our... More

From the reviews I expected this place to be way better then it was during my experience . My tour guide randy was very rude and on his phone most of the trip. I've seen in previous reviews that the guides give information and share some interesting facts about the area. I'm very disappointed to report that much trip was... More

Authentic tour by Native Americans... extremely friendly and knowledgable. We passed tour operator after operator along Hwy 41 that were much more crowded... keep driving to find this gem.

I can say I almost gave this place 4 stars because I wasn't pleased with the lady at the desk! In my opinion she was short and rude! I picked this place because of other reviews on Tripadvisor and they we're spot on! This was a fantastic tour my family thoroughly enjoyed it! The amount of wildlife we seen was... More

The tour was great. Our tour guide Mary was knowledgeable and able to get us VERY close to the alligators. I mean, they were right next to me and felt the need to scoot away from the edge of the boat. The tour of the small island was a nice touch as well. It also wasn't as loud as I... More

Looked around online and decided on this airboat tour! Can't complain about one thing.... Small groups! No waits....... Great fan boat ride and we saw lots of alligators up close and personal. I would recommend this tour company to everyone.
