“Awesome trip. Never been a place like that”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We have never been a place that much different and beautiful. Airboat riding was very good. Worth driving that much and paying. This was an experience that can be lived rather than explained. Drive there and get in an airboat, you'll understand.

Decided to do the airboat ride early on Sat morning and managed to book last one of the day a private tour for my daughter myself and Captain Willy
He was great guide and was well worth it
Experiencing the natural habitat of these wonderful creatures and their friends
Would recommend to anyone and not as far out the way as you think
Got great pics

“Awesome Everglades Experience - Captain Willy is Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Awesome boat ride and tour guide, Willy! We had a private tour for 2 adults and our little one and it was well worth the extra $. We are Florida residents and hadn't been on an airboat in years. The Everglades are so tranquil and beautiful and the tour was very educational. We saw alligators of all sizes and lots of birds and learned all about plant life. Loved the Purple Gallinule! We had been out on the boat for about 15 minutes (30 min rt) when we saw lightning and had to turn back. Willy re-booked us for 1st thing the next day so we feel we got to see it twice! This was a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone. We will do it again soon!

“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Easy reservations, easy meeting place, thoughtful narration and first class equipment make this a must do on anyone's list! Even though the day was cloudy, we had a wonderful airboat ride into the Everglades. Captain Chad was our pilot and he was knowledgeable and a great driver. When you see the River of Grass from the road, it looks like grass as far as the eye can see, but when you are actually in it, the flowers are spectacular. There are birds, dragonflies and many different types of plants to be seen. If you are visiting Miami or if you live here, as we do, a trip with Airboat in Everglades should not be missed.
