Capt. Joshua Mattson did a super job showing us wildlife & fauna during our early morning 2 hour tour. He readily pointed out alligators, birds & plants through the provided headsets with mics so our group could speak with each other too. Highly recommend him and his company.

Captain Josh was amazing! He was able to work with our schedule and we got to see some huge gators in just a few minutes! Captain Josh knows a ton about Florida, gators, and gator hunting. He's super friendly and really made our trip enjoyable.
