We had a great time. Our guide was Ronnie. He was interesting & informative. Loved that the ride was through the mangroves. Didn't see any alligators or too much wild life, but the ride was very good through the everglades. It fit our budget.

Our family of 6 had a great tour! Our guide, Steven, was knowledgeable and witty. And he handled the boat really well! Teens loved the speed runs, saw some wildlife, and had a great time. Not to be missed!!

We enjoyed the airboat tour with Capt. Steven! Just know that the amount of wildlife you see is dependent on the season.

Our captain, Ronnie, was super but we were disappointed that we didn’t see more wildlife. We saw 5 raccoons- that was it. No alligators, no birds, nothing else. According to Ronnie the gators are north of Hwy 41 in the fresh water swamp.More

This is the only tour operator in Everglades City that runs through mangrove only. It is very interesting and fun. We both enjoyed the trip a lot.
