“Great tour of the Everglades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a great trip through the Everglades with our tour guide, George. He was friendly and knowledgable about the plants and animals. The kids loved when he drove the boat fast through the water and it was neat to see wild alligators up close. We saw at least five and got lots of great pictures of them. George also pointed out several beautiful birds that live in the Everglades. I would do this trip again if in the Miami area and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Miami or Ft. Lauderdale.

“Exciting Airboat ride with real gators”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I had real fun trip through the everglades. We came really close to the alligators, and saw a lot of wildlife. The airboats are really fast, and the everglades are an amazing part of nature. Our tourguide and captain did an amazing job explaining and showing the flora and fauna.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We did a 1 1/2 private tour. Captain Randy was excellent. He shared his knowledge about alligators, birds, flowers and herbaceous and much more about the everglades. We saw about 10 alligators some of them very close to the boat. Highly recommended. There are restrooms and a diner where they meet up 10 min drive from the boat.

“Awesome...Book It Now !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Went yesterday with my daughter. Her first time doing this. We really enjoyed it. Had to meet at the Pilot gas station a short trip away...reason is the place is a little hard to find. Was a little different but worked out fine. Very cool guide and very cool trip. Saw so many alligators that we stopped counting. Get a smaller boat with fewer passengers if you can as they are faster and more quiet / nimble. Guide knew a lot about the Everglades and animals in it. Awesome job guys...great time !!
