We called on a Friday and were able to get a reservation on Saturday (next day). My boyfriend and I went with a private tour and got picked up right in front of our hotel. Perry was the start of a very memorable experience! He was very knowledgable and gave us a tour of our own. He talked about current... More

We've always wanted to take the airboat tour and are so glad with did a private tour with Ozzie. I must commend him in that although he does these tours many times per day, you'd think that it was all new to him such is his enthusiasm and love for the little and large creatures. I never thought I'd get... More

Best airboat tour ever! I went on this tour over 5 months ago and I still talk about it all the time and I am looking forward to taking my parents on this tour. Our group was very big, so they sent us in different boats with no problems, the different groups had their own experiences but everyone agreed that... More

Captain Willie is a great host, teacher, and driver. He knows all the great places and he throws in a number of surprises that I won't spoil for you. Go.... a can't miss while in the Everglades.

We took the semi-private one hour tour. It was fabulous! The kids loved all the gators we came across. We even got to see some gators guarding their nests. Capitan Jeff knew just where the gators would be and was informative on the history of the area and birds. He made the ride so much fun for us all! One... More

From the minute we were picked up from our hotel by Barry we were entertained. Barry's knowledge of Miami and the surrounding area was excellent. The tour through the everglades was better than I had expected. the birdlife was amazing and our guide could identify all the birds we saw. Of course the highlight of the tour was the alligators...

We booked yesterday for a tour this morning. Confirmation came promptly along with instructions for meeting. We left on time to meet the boat and our guide Steve. We were provided with earphones to combat the noise which worked well. We took a semi private tour.. The boat was comfortable. Steve knew his stuff including how to avoid the worst... More

We met the group at the gas station and they brought us to the location they launch their airboat from, which is very close by. You will see their pick up - it has their... More
