I have experienced several airboat adventures here in south Florida and found this to be the best. Captain Wayne took our family of 5 on not just a ride, but an adventure. He is very knowledgeable of the everglades and its inhabitants and did an outstanding job of explaining it all. At first, you may consider the price a little... More

Riding an air boat was a bucket list item, but sometimes bucket list items don't turn out like you think. I was picturing Miami Vice air boat riding through the Everglades with gators everywhere, what we got was a more ecological education and slow meander through the river of grass with about half a dozen gators. Although our captain (the... More

Hello and thank you for touring with us, after reading your review about the echo and educational side of the tour I guess we were a 5 star, However the references to the Miami Vice notations stumped us. The everglades is a unique wetland with an echo system like no other, that is what attracts people from all over the... More

I live in the Boston MA area and have been coming to Florida for the past 12 years. Every year the family takes an air boat trip, but it has always been the boats that hold a boat full of people and goes out for a short period of time. We have always enjoyed it and have learned a lot... More

Thanks Capt. Wayne for a great morning. We were comfortable, relaxed and well informed as a result of your skill and expertise. The birds, the gators ...captivating! We have been recommending this tour to everyone.

I took my family for a 2 hour Everglades airboat ride on Valentines Day 2014. We had an absolute blast. Captain Wayne is fun, engaging and very knowledgable about the wildlife and history of the Everglades. Very Impressive. 10 out of 10 stars! Sunil S.

In mid February I had another wonderful airboat tour with Capt. Wayne Gilbert. I was fortunate enough to have seen some seven alligators during this one hour tour. My wife and I had also taken a three hour tour two years ago with Capt. Wayne. Our experience was so wonderful that I was back again this year. I would highly... More

Our guide and Captain, Wayne, was knowledgable, friendly, and very experienced. His airboat was very unique from the others we saw in the area and he gave us a custom-tailored private tour of the...

It was riveting but also soothing being out on the smooth lake. It was an amazing trip and the tour guide, Wayne, was extremely amiable and charismatic and added a personal feel to the trip. It was an amazing trip and I loved it!

Last year, Captain Wayne gave us such a great trip around the sawgrass everglades west of Fort Lauderdale, that we brought our whole family down to Florida for a visit and another airboat adventure, just last week. He organised a second boat, captained by Jason, to accommodate all ten of us, and we had a two hour introduction to speed,... More
