Had a great trip today. Rick was very informative. Quick to respond to get tour scheduled. Right on time. Very clean boat. Very helpful with my husband who has some physical limitations. We saw plenty of wildlife and gators. Highly recommend.

We has a great adventure with Captain Rick! We had wanted to go a Thursday, but it was going to be too windy. He cared enough about us to be honest and say it wasn't going to be a good day on the water!! We went a day earlier and it was fantastic. 90 min tour an we saw 10 gators including a few within 10 feet of the boat. Lots of birds, turtles and other wildlife. Our trip to Florida wouldn't have been complete without this experience.
