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.

We knew very little about the Florida everglades until we met Captain Wayne. The ride itself was fun and exciting. Captain Wayne would stop from time to time to share information and answer question. I would strongly recommend that everyone take this tour. Denise and Dan.

This was the best part of our vacation! Captain Wayne was awesome! He knows his stuff and really showed us a great time. The amount of wildlife we saw was incredible.

Upon meeting Captain Wayne you are immediately taken by his booming voice and soulful laugh. This self-proclaimed "Italian Redneck" comes across as unique and personable. Once you hit the waterways and the good Captain starts his tour you will then be taken by this man's knowledge of the Everglades and more importantly his love for his surrondings. His ability to...

We loved every minute of it. Thank you, Captain Wayne. As we pulled into the parking area, we passed several airboats that looked like they had 20 bleacher seats stacked on it. My husband has gone on these airboats before and was not impressed with his prior tours. Captain Wayne's airboat, which would seat 6 adults comfortably, and our time... More

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.
