If it hadn't been for captain Steve, we'd've missed out on the wonders of Big Cypress National Preserve. His no-nonsense, practical approach to the swamps made a reserved Englishwoman happy to go wading out into the waters. We saw gators a-plenty, a big buck, a flowering onion orchid, birds and fishes. The tour lasted well over 3 hours, so for $100 you get your money's worth, plus he only takes small groups so you can get all the answers you ever wanted to your swampy questions!
The only reason we didn't give this 5/5 was because we had problems getting hold of Steve to start our tour, he didn't show up at the designated meeting place and the problem was confounded by our cell phones not working properly outside of the UK. However, he did wait for us while we tracked him down, for which we are VERY grateful as it was a fantastic experience.

We do have problems with cell phone reception in the swamp and not being a road side tour some times directions to find me get a little hard.Usually someone answers the business phone and can direct you there but that is part of the adventure.I'm glad you enjoyed it and i hope to see y'all again.By the way my web site will give you directions just print them off before you leave home.This time i passed right by you and didn't stop sorry.I'll get it right next time.Thanks again.Captain Steve I LOVE MY JOB!
