What an awesome day spent riding down the river on an airboat 🥰 we saw baby alligators, big alligators, turtles, snails, a ton of different birds, and picnicked in an orange/mandarin orchard. Thanks Cap'n Dave @ Kachunga for an amazing experience that we'll remember forever!

Captain Gil is a true gentleman, an original, an authentic Florida cracker, the crocodile Dundee of this beautiful state. If you want to see the real Florida, olde Florida, with a gentleman with a true appreciation for our environment, Captain Gil has no peer. Full of interesting stories, a colorful past, and just a down to earth great guy, Gil will show a part of Florida so few get the opportunity to experience. We did the Gulf tour and it was simply amazing...manatees, bald eagles, white Pelicans, wildlife too numerous to list, what an amazing day. Capth Gil’s enthusiasm is infectious, you’ll never feel like he’s just doing a job. He feeds off your excitement and strives to make your experience one you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Don’t take the group tour at some touristy, big operation. Shell out the extra $$ and hire Gil to make memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime!

100000% exceeded our expectations. We drove a hour and 40 Mins which round trip was a pretty significant chunk out of our trip just drive time. This was a absolute blast. Well worth the travel time. We took bologna sandwichs and got to have a little picnic. It was a one of a kind experience none of us will forget. Gil was very personable and fit right in with our group. The price is super cheap for the memories we made! We seen lots of gators but we honestly enjoyed the air boat just as much. Add this to your MUST DO!

This tour guide is amazing and the adventure breathtaking. Wear a baseball cap so the ear muffs fit over your head and bring a jacket! Get ready for the experience of a lifetime! Gil knows the area and wildlife so well it is an inside view of the Everglades. Way inside! We paid $375. For up to 4 people. Very personal trip.
