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.

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.

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...
