“Fabulous time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

James gave us an excellent tour of the surrounding Everglades. He gave us excellent information about the wildlife and ecosystem and was an expert and careful driver. Excellent tour for all ages, small children through seniors.
Well done!

“Enjoyed it so much!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We arrived early, a bit before 8 am. There was already one family waiting. They opened up at 8 am and the first family could go immediately but we had to wait 45 minutes because there was only one captain,...Bit weird in high season but anyway, 30 minutes later another captain, Rick, arrived and we could go as well. It was said to be a 25-minute ride but we were gone atleast 45 minutes! Captain Rick was great, stopped at different places and explained a lot about the environment and the animals living there. We also saw two alligators, one of them approaching our boat. As we were going early in the morning, the sun was still low and it wasn't that hot yet. The wind felt great and it was such an amazing feeling, speeding through these environments. Our group (6 adults and 2 kids) enjoyed it so much! We recommend the private airboat tours to everyone!

“REALLY COOL!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

3 of us - including a 14 who doesn't get impressed easily, we're a "walk on" and despite a yucky rainy day within 15 mins we were on a boat and exploring the beautiful scenery with Captain James.
James did a great job teaching us about the ecosystem and wildlife and upon arrival another employee/captain had called an 8 ft male gator over to the dock so we could get an up close look at this awesome creature.
Definitely WORTH IT!!!

“AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The driver was very knowledgable about everything we saw. Saw a girl gator guarding her nest. Very neat! Also we saw a gator right by their dock that they said stays under their place to keep cool. Very fun and worth the money!!
