“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We are from Iowa and wanted to see the Everglades....and of course alligators and we got to see both!! Capt.Standford was amazing! He spent ample time with us answering all of our questions. And we got to see 3 up close alligators. Had a great experience!!

We had a great tour and our captain was fun and knowledgeable. Our kids are 9 and 11 and they enjoyed it too. Would recommend.

“Interesting, once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

To be upfront about it, this was a bucket list thing. We picked this firm based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and they were spot on. The boats were clean, the guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and we weren't buried in a mangrove forest for the entire trip. It was interesting to see the differences between the mangrove areas and the grassland areas. There were tons of birds, but we didn't see too many alligators (and understand that's like "fishing" versus "catching"). The kids had a great time checking out the baby gator at the end of the trip and enjoyed the opportunity to hold it for photo opportunities. As this was a bucket list thing, we wouldn't go back, but also wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to someone else.

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had a great time during our visit to Captain Mitch's private airboat tour!! The ride was super fun, gliding over the water & doing some sliding turns! We saw 6 or 7 alligators, lots of beautiful birds & beautiful mangroves trees. Our captain was able to draw one of the gators very close to our boat by tapping the water with an earplug, it was very exciting! He was extremely informative, friendly, humorous, and entertaining! He explained that we came at a good time of year to see the gators as the waters are getting cooler and they come up to sun during the day, late fall and winter are the best times to see the gators. After the ride we went into the office & held a baby gator, that was exciting as well! There are chips, candy bars, and soda or water available for purchase in the office. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area, especially during the winter - even if you don't see any gators the ride is great & the scenery is beautiful & it was a great experience!

“Fun Everglades Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Riding on the fan boat with Captain Bill through the Everglades was an awesome experience. His knowledge and personality provided for a wonderful trip. We saw only one alligator while on the tour, but after the tour you could hold a three year old gator. We also saw a very large 25 year old gator in the water near their building. We enjoyed learning some history and ecological facts while on the tour. Bring your camera to capture some of the animals in their natural habitat and the scenery. Captain Bill was very considerate and slowed down many times for the guests to take pictures. We recommend that you purchase ear plugs at their office when you pay for your trip. Also check online to see if they are offering any discounts. Tim and Barb
