Our family and friends, a group of ten, had a great tour of the Everglades even in the summer heat. From the time we boarded the boat, our captain was personable, caring, and very knowledgeable. Using a narrow airboat, we traveled deep into the River of Grass on overgrown waterways where we barely fit. The grandkids were thrilled that they could reach out and touch the sawgrass that we passed. As the group host and longtime Florida resident, I was gratified to learn facts about the Glades and have plants identified that even I didn’t know. A summer boat ride can be comfortable. I suggest a baseball cap and sunglasses to shade your eyes instead of my broad-brimmed hat that blew around. Touring early in the morning (or late in the day) meant we could see more animal life in spite of ‘gators usually staying underwater in the summer. Try a tour! You’ll like it!

Absolutely loved this team. I was visiting Lauderdale with some friends who didn’t have any interest in an airboat tour but I was still determined to go. I researched several companies but after chatting over the phone with Capt. Jim, I knew this was the group to go with. I talked to the lovely Alyse the next day who arranged a private tour and the following morning, I was meeting Stuart at the dock. We weren’t five minutes into the tour before we spotted the first gator. I got pics and videos of a dozen more after that, not to mention the other critters (iguana, heron, anhinga) and beautiful hibiscus and lotus flowers. These guys know what they’re doing and know where to find the swamp creatures you’re hoping to see on the tour! Stuart was super knowledgeable about not only the wildlife but the history of and life on the ‘glades. I can honestly say that even if we hadn’t spotted any critters, the scenery and airboat ride alone were worth it, it gives you a real appreciation for the wetlands and the coastal environment. On top of all that, the hospitality of this crew was above and beyond, ensuring I’d be able to get to the dock and back into town to catch my flight on time. Five stars on all fronts. DO NOT end your visit to Florida without hanging out with these guys!

Captain Jim was the perfect guide and gave us the most amazing experience. Not only was it educational, I felt completely safe the entire time and had a blast. His knowledge of and passion for the environment showed throughout the entire tour, and he made sure we never missed a moment. I cannot wait to get out there again and would recommend this experience to everyone who is looking for a fun time and an incredible nature experience.

Been on a few different airboat tours, and this was by far the best. Jim has great knowledge about the Everglades. Our whole group enjoyed the day.
