Great way to see the area. Very knowledgeable Ranger on board made sure we did not miss anything. Quite expensive which was my only negative. Saw dolphins and ospreys really close up. Just a good way to spend and afternoon.

We originally wanted to do an airboat tour, but when we stumbled upon this it sounded too fun to pass up! Our guide was a really nice young guy who was very informative. He gave us so much information on the different wildlife. He made it a point to stop and look for alligators, manatees, and different birds. We saw... More

Took a wonderful afternoon cruise/tour out to the 10,000 islands out of Chokoloskee. The crew was magnificent and gave comprehensive information about the ecology and wildlife of this unique area. It is definitely worth the expense and time to experience this one of a kind locations in this country. The dolphins playing around our boat was an added pleasure.

I wanted to go on an airboat tour, but my family talked me into this one. I was thankful for that. We went on a pontoon boat on the gulf side. Lots of mangroves and wildlife. Awesome birds, dolphins, and manatees. The boat captain and assistant were great and very informative. We saw alligators on the drive as we traveled... More

We went into this not really knowing what to expect but wow were we left wanting more. We saw everything you could ever ask for. Birds, dolphin, manatee, and a shark. Just a wonderful experience all the way around! So thankful we found this. Such a great way to spend our morning. Our captain and first mate (I can't remember... More

Riding in a six-person boat with no bimimi gives the guest an 'open air' ride through the saltwater portion of the Everglades as well as a 'duck down' experience through a large section of mangrove wilderness. Guide Dave made sure we knew the differences between the red, white and black mangroves as well as keeping us apprised of nests, gators,... More

We booked a morning cruse and were not disappointed. As it was out of season there were just 3 couples on our trip. Our crew consisted of Captain Terry and guide Daniel who were both excellent. Daniel kept us entertained, pointing out the wildlife and explaining their place in the Everglades. We saw the different Eco systems and island types.... More

Within a few minutes we spotted a dolphin, but it was chasing it's meal so no lasting view and no jumping over the wake (like I was expecting). Shortly during the ride out of the Everglades and around many of the islands we spotted Manatees and their snouts. We also saw many birds including Osprey, Terns, King Fisher, Snowy Egrets... More
