Took airboat tour last week with a great airboat captain. He took us to see interesting fauna and amazing views of the Everglades. When we had only about 15 minutes left of our one-hour tour, our airboat broke down. We sitted in a canal full of alligators (a mixed feeling episode) for 20 minutes until another airboat picked us up.... More

Ultimately I was happy with the experience, though I don't think I'd do the tour again and I would probably recommend folks to try another company. I had assumed there would be a little talk about the Everlades, the eco-system, wildlife, etc, during the tour, but we only heard a little bit about alligators once we actually spotted them, and...

We found them through the web and TripAdvisor, and got an awesome experience during our 1-hour tour. Steve is a fantastic guide, very passionate and knowledgeable, and makes you fascinated about his world. We loved his explanations, his expertise and his communication. Beside the fun side, he was also able to raise awareness regarding the threats encountered by this environment... More

We were considering whether to go on one of the regular airboat tours, or spend the extra money to take this private tour. In the end we were really happy we took the private tour, the expereince was well worth the extra money! The experience of being just our family, and the exceptional knowledge and guidance by our captain Willie... More

We booked the 1.5 private tour and despite the heat, we got a great impression of the flora and fauna (including alligators) of the Everglades. Our captain Steve is not only a great airboat driver but was also very knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a great time.

My Wife and I wanted to see some gators close up and tour the Everglades. This tour was awesome. Our guide Willie was really friendly and has a lot of information about the wildlife and area. He did a gator call and baby gators actually came out. A big gator came up to the boat and birds ate out of... More

Steve is the greatest to tell us about his experience. He knows where the alligators are. He drives perfectly just to let us see a bit of what an airboat is capable of. :)

We have recently returned from an airboat ride through the Everglades and were amazed from start to finish. The guide was knowledgeable, courteous and enthusiastic ( despite no doubt doing the same trip hundreds of times before). The only dampner was the weather which turned bad with lightning half way into the trip - but safety first thankfully! I would... More

This was such a great experience! Steve is so wonderful, and really knowledgeable about all things in the everglades! He made my and my brother's experience such a memorable and fun one! This is the best way to see some alligators, wildlife, and to have a good time!
