After a weekend of racing, we were looking to kill some time before our flights home late on Monday. We hit the jackpot, and not the one at the Casino! We made reservation at 10 and were on a boat by 1. Victoria met us and took our payment efficiently and emailed a receipt. We then followed her and another... More

I had the pleasure of taking the group tour yesterday. I was able to call that morning to grab my spot on the 1 pm tour. The instructions for the tour meet-up were texted to me which made it convenient. Victoria was early to the meet-up spot as were the other 6 guests on the tour, so we drove over... More

This is the best airboat experience I ever had. Our captain, Robert, is awesome. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge to made this ride exceptional special. I felt I went to a crash course learning about Everglades in 2 hrs. We have perfect weather today and the airboat ride was fantastic. During the ride we saw alligators, birds,... More

He gave us a detailed overview of the Everglades history and shared his lifetime experiences from living there a majority of his life. He knew all the in's and out's of... More

Did the 1.5 hr private tour. Victoria picked us up from the Shell station punctually and we were ready to go some minutes early. As you swoosh through the sawgrass at 50 mph, you really see how immense the Everglades is. Robert is very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about giving visitors the best and explains a lot about the ecosystem.... More

Hard to find words good enough to describe our sunset tour with Robert and the 'gators on his amazing boat. Robert's knowledge is vast and he doesn't miss an opportunity to show you the Everglades at its very best. We decided on the sunset tour and it was absolutely the best decision we made. No only did we see the... More

My friends and I had booked a 1,5 hour semi private airboat tour and we were very happy that we chose The River of Grass Adventures. Everything went very smoothly from booking to meeting up at the location. Robert was very kind and very knowledgeable about the whole area, and it was easy to sense his passion about the Everglades.... More

We were unlucky enough to pick an unseasonably cold day in Miami for our early morning trip. Robert graciously had jackets ready for us. Although it was still very cold, we were having a great time. Robert is very knowledgable about the everglades and the wildlife there and kept us entertained with stories and educated us in the meantime. He... More

We took the sunset tour for 2 hours with Captain Ray. We had an excellent experience and learned many things about the everglades and the wildlife that live there that we did not know. The sunset was beautiful with reds and oranges against the river grass. Everything was quiet and peaceful. We saw alligators up front and close. Ray was... More

I'v been to couple of airboat tours already, but I must say this one was so far the best one. In my opinion it is the best airboat private tour you can get in Miami. This company doesn't talk about how great they are, they show it live. Captain Robert really treat you like his friends rather than his customers.... More
