We decided to stop here based on a friends recommendation. I'm really glad we did. It is a little pricy, but we found some coupons and paid in cash so it was a little cheaper. We each got to hold a baby alligator before the tour. We went on a weekday during the afternoon, so we were the only ones there and got the whole boat to ourselves. The captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. The property is privately owned, so the entire ride was just us and the wide open swamps. There weren't many alligators or birds on the trip, but that was simply because of the time of year. If you want to see a lot of wildlife, do some research on when the birds will be migrating down there and when the alligators move in after the rainy season. There's nothing the guides can do to influence that. But they know where the alligator dens are and stop at each to see if any are out. One of them was out and was very curious about the boat. She swam right up to the sides of the boat and we got lots of up close pictures. I would highly recommend stopping here for some amazing scenery and experiences.

I got to see Big Al who lives under the house. He's impressive. As for the airboat ride that is exactly what it was just a ride. We say 1 alligator and another was coming into the water but our guide was afraid of that one and would not stick around for us to see him. I really wish we had a guide that was not afraid of gators. We were very disappointed in the lack of gators but enjoyed the ride.

I just happened to choose Capt Mitch's airboat tour because they were running a great June special. We had a group of 8, 3 adults and 5 kiddos, and it was a great experience. We were worried that a couple of the kids may be scared on the ride, but it ended up being very relaxing. The kids loved being able to hold the baby gators, inside the shop and seeing a few big gators outside. The staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Afterwards, we were able to sit outside and enjoy some treats that they sell in the shop.

It was lovely feeling the warm breeze, wind in your hair and sunlight while learning about the flora and fauna of this fascinating natural wonder, and I would highly recommend heading out to the Everglades on this tour if you're in Florida. The guides are knowledgeable and the experience feels genuine, local and not touristy or overexploited.

Captain Dave provided us with a full tour of the private everglade. He made special effort to show me Rosetta spoonbilled bird I wanted to see. He shared informative information about the glades. Loves what he does and represents captain mitch tours favorable. Fun adventure and reasonable in price.
