We went on the two hour tour with Capt Randy and my family had an amazing time. I was a little concerned with the diverse age group - from 13 year old nephew, parents and sister with her husband. Would the ride keep their attention and not be too crazy? Capt Randy put everyone at ease right away. The ride was a great balance of some high speed fun and plenty of time learning about the glades. Capt Randy truly knows the area and has a lot of respect for the history and future of this unbelievable river. My nephew was thrilled to steer the airboat through the cattails. He found plenty of gators for us to view - without feeling like we were intruding on them. The cost was more expensive than the "high volume people" tours; but the difference was obvious when we flew by the busy loading area with the bigger, bulkier boats. We'll be talking about this trip for awhile.
