“We loved this....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We were five middle aged women who love birding and wildlife viewing . This tour was great . Interesting , informative and fun . We especially enjoyed the detailed explanation of the alligators fit into current Florida ecology and agriculture . Captain Kenny was able to ascertain our interests and the level at which we wanted things explained . He worked at showing us gators at all stages of development . This tour set the tone for a wonderful day . so glad we did this !

“Loved our tour of the marshes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

One of my favorite things we did in Vero Beach was to take a tour on the Marsh Beast of the Florida marshes. Our guide Kenny was excellent and gave us lots of good information about what we were seeing and tried really hard to find the best chances for us to see alligators and get good photos.

Kenny is very knowledgeable about the marshes and Everglades and the industries it supports in Florida. I learned a lot and can't wait to take another tour someday.

“Marsh Beast is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Having gone on an airboat ride in the Everglades, I thought that the Blue Cypress Swamp tour would not be as good - it wasn't, it was 100% better! It was exciting and beautiful - we saw many alligators and birds and flowers. I highly recommend this tour. Capt Kenny was knowledgeable and told us many interesting facts about the area and the wildlife. Loved it as did my whole family.

“Capt. Kenny's Knowledgeable and quick!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Skimming over the swamplands, with the greatest of ease, Capt. Kenny's airboat was brightly colored like Kermit the Frog (not necessarily the 'Old Florida' feel). We saw plenty of alligators, large and small, several egrets, a few great blue herons, and lots of Osprey. Only trouble was knowledgeable Ole Capt. Kenny whizzed by some of the birds too, too fast (for this novice photographer) to really get the photo op or gather in the precious nature moment. WE wore hats (which were held on by the microphone head sets) , but sun screen and a bottle of water would be a must if the day was any hotter. The two 80 year olds in our group had a bit of trouble getting on to the boat which was not launched from a dock but grounded on the slant of the waterway.
