“Awesome Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Why sit next to sweaty strangers on one of those airboats that holds 20-30 people? Sit comfortably with your family or friends (or both) and enjoy the flora and fauna of the Everglades. Greg Brown and his son are well versed in the history of the Everglades and know the names and stories behind every tree, bush, and blade of saw grass. We saw beautiful flowers, birds and of course alligators...both large and small. This is a great way to spend the day...I highly recommend them for a truly awesome experience. In fact, I am a repeat customer and hope to do it again soon!

“Doing Florida Proud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Went out last week with Capt Dave on a two hour private tour that was simply amazing. Captain Wayne from Cypress Airboat Tours handled all the arrangements and couldn't have been more responsive or easy to work with.

My wife and I have each lived in Florida for 30 years and this was without a doubt one of our best experiences here. It's an easy 45 minute ride from South Beach and anyone wanting a true Florida experience needs to put this at the top of their list.

Capt. Dave may appear young at first glance, but he's a true professional. A skilled boat handler with an impressive command of both flora and fauna, he put us in the right position to see an amazing amount and variety of what the glades have to offer.

Stop reading this and go book the tour, you won't be sorry.

“Great trip for family (even with teenagers)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband, 2 teenagers and I took a 2 hour tour with guide David. We had a great time. Was a great mix of education (not too much which was good with teens), fun and air boating. Saw tons of alligators and birds. The Everglades were awesome! We would definitely recommend this outfitter to others!

“Amazing journey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The crew was very knowledgeable of the Everglades' wildlife and very kid. I told them that I wanted to do a lot of photography and they made sure that I had plenty of opportunities. My wife and I could not ask for a better journey across the Everglades.

“Well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We took the 2 hr private tour and thouroughly enjoyed it. Our guide David Brown has a wealth of knoweledge and experience in the area and he took the time to provide us will all the information he could within that time. If you want to come away with as much insight into the Everglades and with lots of aligator And bird close ups, this tour is well worth it!
