“Worth the Drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Of the many things on my bucket list was Airboat ride in the Everglades.Tick it's done. Question was it worth it ? We drove out from Miami ,for me the biggest problem was the major road works on the road into the Everglades and they will be ongoing for some time ( be warned ) the first you are aware of them is when they appear.To that end most people stop at the first/second company that they hit , but we went to the company opposite Shark Valley run by the Miccosukee a further 10 miles up the road. Very quiet so just the two of us 40min trip loads of wild life, the guide/driver was very easy to talk to and full of information .Out of 10 the man gets 10. The gatter nuggets 1/10
not for me.

“Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We did a 1-hour airboat tour with Willy and had a fantastic time. Willy was super nice. So cool seeing the gators up close. They may not be the cheapest, but they were great.

“One of the best tours i've ever taken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Four of us went on a 1.5 hour private tour with Capt Willie. It was amazing. We had a large gator come up on the boat, saw tons of awesome wildlife, and had a thrilling boat ride. Willie was incredibly informative. If you want an airboat gator tour, do this one.

“Very energetic and entertaining trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Based upon other TripAdvisor reviews, we selected this outfit and requested Willy. He was great. We booked the 1.5 hour private tour and had a fantatic time. First impressions: they were very friendly and polite, they were ready for us when we arrived, and the boat was in very good repair - no tears in the seat cushions, no visible leaks etc... Willy pointed out the wildlife as we came across it and was very well informed. The boat ran flawlessly. Willy knew where to go to view particular birds or alligators he had encountered before and even included a stop at a small island used for governement employees for sampling. Would recommend to a friend and would go again.

Theses guys appreciate your business from the moment they greet you, all the way to the end. We saw and learned a lot. The guide stopped a lot to teach us.
