Captain Wayne was very knowledgable about the Florida Everglades. It was a Great Adventure on his SUPER COOL private airboat.

This was our second tour with Cptn Wayne, the first being just the two of us five years ago. This time, we brought our (urbanite, smartphone-addicted, hard-to-impress) teens, and we weren't sure how it would go over. THEY LOVED IT! Cptn Wayne kept the pace right, with stops to watch the wildlife and explain the ecosystem/answer questions, and speed to... More

From the moment we met Wayne we knew it was going to be a blast. He was very friendly and knowledge and knew the swamps very well. He took the time to stop and make sure we didn't have any questions. I would recommend this airboat experience to anyone. I give it 20 stars 👍👍

I wasn't sure what to expect as this Northeast girl has never seen a live Alligator in my life. I loved the breeze as we soared through the Everglades, slowing or stopping whenever the Captain spied something interesting. Most of the Gators were small, but a few large ones were seen resting on the banks. It was beautiful with the... More

We were with Captain Wayne and the Full Throttle for a late afternoon ride on his 5-seater airboat. They have 9-sweaters as well, but we like the intimacy of the smaller boat and I think we went pretty fast! Enjoyed the speed and the agility of the boat. Spotted lots of gators, birds and turtle. The afternoon light was perfect.... More

Captain Wayne is the man! We had an awesome ride through the Everglades. Captain Wayne answered all of our questions no matter how silly they were. The airboat excursion was easily the highlight of my trip to Florida.

After our cruise, we went with Captain Wayne on his airboat out into the Everglades ecosystem. We were richly rewarded with views of alligators, birds, and the ever present sawgrass. The ride was smooth and refreshing.. The birds would pop up in front of us and fly along with us. Wayne was very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife of... More

Captain Wayne made this adventure amazing. His experience with the area and the history really came through in the tour. He understands the dynamics of the area and the other operators and this allowed us to see much more than we would have on a bigger boat. He was very informative and funny. It was an amazing adventure.
