Becky guaranteed we would see alligators, and Robert didn't even have to try! We booked an early morning (9am) private tour, and yup, alligators as far as the eye could see. Just lazing about the river like a bunch of floating logs. We stopped counting at a dozen. The actual river itself was gorgeous in the morning, and it was... More

What an awesome adventure. Robert did an amazing job not only of pointing out all the wildlife, but also of explaining the conservation of the Everglades.

Their advice was to do an earlier tour before the animals hide away from the airboats and/or it gets too hot for them to be out. Bob was our very knowledgeable and competent driver who showed us some fantastic sights in the 90 exhilarating minutes we were on the airboat. We saw HEAPS of alligators and birds, and lots of...

Loved it! Captain Ray was very entertaining & taught us a lot about the Everglades. I can not remember the lady's name, but the one that does the scheduling went out of her way to accommodate us after being lost & late finding the place (make sure you pay attention to the sw/Se etc when putting into gps). We loved... More

We can't recommend River of Grass enough, excellent service from enquiry to tour. We booked 1.5 hour private tour with Ray as our Guide and it really was an amazing experience. The scenery, wildlife and very informative tour really is first class.

Robert was very passionate and knowledgeable about the area, the Everglades, and the wildlife in the area. This was my first time on an airboat so I didn't know what to expect and this exceeded my expectations. Robert was a great ambassador for the Everglades and shared the history and future plans for the area with hopes that the Everglades... More

We highly recommend this trip. Our guide and pilot (Ray) treated us like old friends who he couldn't wait to show the favorite parts of his "neighborhood" -- he helped us spot the alligators (big old ones with their eyes sticking out of the water and flashing their crooked smiles and baby alligators squeaking and swimming about), and pointed out...

Robert was a fabulous guide and explained the terrain, wildlife, and the ecosystem to us. We did a 2 hour ride which was just right for our family of 5. I highly recommend River of Grass Adventures.
