Overview

Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

All went pretty good for our group of 7 people. Boat choices include larger size for larger family groups. Boat skippers run a very safe tour and take their jobs very seriously---- no "hot dog" stuff is included with these guys!

It was a cool experience. They asked us to arrive 30 minutes early. We did. Check-in took about 2 minutes and we waited around for the next 28. They have a modest gift shop and an alligator in confinement to occupy some of the time....More

Don’t expect to see much wildlife. It’s a little Pricey for a boat ride especially for 11yo as adult. But it was fun. Tour guide talked a lot and wld rather had longer boat ride.

I’m sure they’ll take your reservation. You pay when you arrive. It’s a very informal operation.
