Don't be fooled with gator boys attraction... Same as all the others. Airboat was ok, captain Mike was very informative and down to earth. He found two small gators- still wouldn't want to be in the water with them. He knew a lot about the Everglades and how to survive within. Use AAA or a coupon! The group shot was... More

Our tour was fun and informative. The crew was very knowledgeable of the wildlife and history of the Ten Thousand Islands. The captain tried very hard to find dolphins for those passengers that had never seen one up close before. Even though I am a local and have seen much of the wildlife before, it was still an enjoyable time... More

Really enjoyed touring the 10,000 islands with the National Park Service. Daniel was very generous with his knowledge of the areas waters and habitats. Would highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to explore more of the park than is visible from the road.

Went on the last trip of day (5pm) and saw dolphins and Manatees. Very good captain Steve and crew (local high school kid) that guided us and made sure we got the best views.

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
