“a fun time for all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We spent 90 minutes out on the Everglades with our guide, Willie. He was terrific and showed us more alligators than I ever imagined we could see. We even heard a large male gator "calling" to a female...it was amazing. Willie really knew his stuff and he even has a couple of trained birds that come around to "see" him and his guests.
We really enjoyed ourselves and this attraction is really close to Miami so it is an easy morning activity.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This tour is amazing! Ozzie was our tour guide and he is so knowledgeable about the Everglades and he is great at his job! We came up close to many different animals which was great! Ozzie is very funny and he really knows how to keep you entertained but at the same time feeds you with so much information. We took the private tour which lasted a little over an hour, but we had the whole boat to ourselves. I am glad we went that route because I feel like it was more personal and we got much more than we paid for!

I would definitely recommended this tour if you are looking for great insight into the Everglades or if you are looking for an all around fun time!!!

Thanks Ozzie :)

Very knowledgeable and very friendly as well. I learned a lot about the Everglades in just one hour! It's an awesome experience! I won't spoil anything, just go and see it for yourself. :-)

“You can't experience this anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We went to Florida for the beach and the amusement parks in Orlando, but this was a great side trip. We took a one hour private airboat tour with Ozzie and it was fantastic! What a great way to experience the unique nature of the Everglades with the kids.

“my airboat ride in everglades with my family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We had such a great time touring and being educated about the "glades"We went early morning while most of the wild life was out and about before the sun high and we had many come into camera shots for our viewing pleasure. Ozzie was a wealth of information and we could tell he enjoyed his work by the care given to explain wildlife and plants on the visit.I would hightly recommend this trip to all my friends.
