Our custom dual control air boats are smaller and better than the park boats. We give the copilot a chance to drive the airboat. Our custom airboat rides are very smooth and comfortable just in case you have a bad back or any other injury. It’s like riding a fresh water Harley!Want a completely private airboat tour? *2 HOUR PRIVATE TOUR FOR TWO People(Our most popular Airboat Ride): Fort Lauderdale Location ONLY $375 for 2 people $75 for each additional Adult $35 for each additional child (ages 7-12) Children 6 and under are free! What to Expect We go deep in the Florida Everglades and cover over 36 miles on our 2/hour Airboat Ride Lot’s of gators, birds, turtles, camps with over 200 years of history, AND you get to drive the airboat. Bring a cooler if you like. Snacks, soda, water and adult drinks are welcome.

Did a two hour tour with Captain Randy on a Sunday morning in July 2015. He called the day before to confirm and to give directions and I didn't have any trouble finding the boat ramp. When I arrived, Randy was there and ready to go with his boat. He provides over-the-ear hearing protection, but if I had to do... More

One of the best experiences of my life. I am an avid outdoorsman and love everything that has to do with fun and adrenaline. This is in my top 5 experiences ever. Had been on my bucket list for years and Capt Randy went way above and beyond to make it super special. Even got to drive to boat which... More

Had a 11am trip planned, but with showers in the forecast we called the day before and changed our time to 7am. Very cool experience, Captain Randy was a friendly and entertaining tour guide, especially knowledgable about the history of the area, the wildlife, and the houses that are still part of the Everglades. Highly recommend this trip! Plus most... More

Randy is totally awesome! We loved the personal tour he gave us and the guys had an awesome time driving and riding the air boat. If it wasn't for the fact that we are located in Oklahoma, we would be back again this year! Thanks for the awesome outing and have a wonderful adventure!

Although our day started out rocky because our boat didn't start, captain randy made it all come together. The day was perfect, i drove the boat, it was awesome to see a great demostration of Captain randy's expertise with an unfamiliar crock so up close! ! Go early in the morning if you can (earlier than the first advertised ride)... More

Gliding through the Everglades with Captain Randy was one of the most amazing tour experiences we’ve had anywhere, period. The Everglades were a fascinating environment, especially when seen from an airboat, and we felt welcomed and well-informed from when we first contacted Captain Randy to when we stepped off the boat at the end of our tour. The boat itself... More

Our trip was amazing. Captain Randy showed up on time and his directions to the launch spot were perfect. We had a great 2 hour ride. We stopped several times where he pointed out different types of wildlife. We saw tons of alligators. He knew just where to look. The kids loved the speed of the boat and when we... More

We took 2 hour private tour and we so happy we went with this company. It was an amazing tour. We saw 60 or 70 alligators. We lost count. Dave was friendly and easy going and explained everything along the way. We covered 36 miles of everglades. Plenty of birds to see and it was just so much fun and... More

We were looking for a private tour into the Everglades and didn't want tourist gimics. We found the best guide with Captain Randy! He was a knowledgeable guide and even gave us a few thrills, gunning the airboat up to about 40mph a few times. We also got a chance to drive the airboat ourselves. The private, 2 hour tour... More

I was a little bit weary of meeting 3.5 mile from the recreation center at a boat ramp? It turned out Captain Randy showed us a great view of the Everglades. Very knowledgeable of the glades and the area. We learned allot. We had a great time. We saw so many gators I lost count. The birds were amazing. Huge... More
