Rather than just buildings, travel is more about experiencing that which is unique to the part of the world you happen to be in,and this is up there with the best. While the wind in your hair, roar of the engine with the sword grass rushing by is exhilarating, it’s Captain Randy’s passion, familiarity and understanding of the everglades and... More

Captain Randy is first class all the way. Courteous, knowledgeable and professional. We will be back and will recommend to all that expect the very best! Take care of that beagle captain!

Frankly, I don't know what could have been done to make my airboat tour any better! Captain Randy is very experienced and was able to spot and talk about not only alligators, but also flamingos, unique plants, and many other specimens of Everglades flora and fauna. He is also very well-informed about the history of the area we toured, from... More

Our family wanted an airboat ride like you see in the swamps and not just a staged airboat where they might have a few alligators "tied" up. Captain Randy was gracious, making sure our family which consisted of four children, six years and under, were safe and everyone had hearing protection. He toured us around and we saw so many...

Capt Randy's tour of the everglades was definitely the highlight of our trip! He was very knowledgable, not just of the everglades, but of the history of the surrounding area as well as different birds, reptiles and even vegetation. This isn't just a job, this is his passion. Capt Randy went out of his way to make sure we had... More

We booked our Ride the Wind ride with Randy in February 2014 while on vacation in Florida and it was awesome! We got a chance to drive the boat and got a great tour of the Everglades and learn a bit of history. It was great to see plenty of gators and wildlife up close. We tell all of our... More

Randy's the man! Apart from giving us a thrilling ride, allowing each of us the opportunity to steer at the airboat "helm", Randy is a wonderful story teller who has a deep sense of love and respect for the Everglades. It is evident that Randy is passionate about what he does and his treasure trove of stories, spanning a rich... More

Unique experience touring the Everglades in an airboat with Captain Randy. We were traveling with four teenage boys and they all loved the tour and getting a chance to drive the airboat themselves. Saw about half a dozen gators, lots of birds and learned a lot about the Everglades. Captain Randy is a great storyteller and has a lifetime of... More

Seriously - save your money from all the other typical things to do near Weston FL and take the 2 hour, private, you-steer-it tour at 4 p.m. with Randy off Route 27 (mile marker 38.5 Frances somebody boat launch). The everglades are totally serene and lovely. There were plenty of alligators and bird but to be honest STEERING THAT BOAT... More

We were guided around by Captain Randy, and we found the entire experience to be amazing! Randy was very personable, as well as knowledgeable about the everglades. He leet us drive the boat, which was incredible! A once in a lifetime experience for sure.
