With friends in town during a pandemic we wanted to show them a safe activity outdoors. We had been to another airboat tour company in the past and wanted to experience a smaller, more personal tour than that of the other company. We are so glad we chose the Loxahatchee Tour with our excellent guide, Mark. We were able to get an up close and personal look at "The Big Kahuna" and cruising through the beautiful Everglades was fun for all. The experience, knowledge, and hospitality that we experienced was second to none. We were lucky to be able to see several gators in their natural habitat and learn more about the ecosystem of the Everglades. Our many questions were answered and great insight was given to this unique ecosystem. We were reminded about the need to protect the place that provides us with drinking water, protects from flooding and helps with pollution. If you are between this tour and the less expensive tour, I will highly recommend that you choose Loxahatchee Everglades Tour.

Marc is a really knowledgeable guide and you will learn a lot about the animals, birds, and plants of the area. This experience was even better than I had expected. We saw many different species of birds including a variety of herons, ospreys and vultures soaring overhead, and quite a few gators including a ten-footer and a small one which still had stripes. Reserve ahead of time on the website. There is no ticket office. The departure time is approximate- could be 15-20 minutes or so later than scheduled. Thanks again Marc!

My husband and I took an airboat ride with Loxahatchee Everglades Airboat Tours this past weekend with Marc Thomas as our tour guide, and we had a very pleasant experience. We took an afternoon tour, as Marc had reached out to us earlier in the morning, and suggested rescheduling from the morning to the afternoon, when the weather would be warmer and more pleasant, as it was unusually cold for a south Florida winter morning. Marc was very knowledgeable with Everglades, with the history of the region and the wildlife that lives within, while pointing some of them out during our tour. The airboat ride was very comfortable and Marc made it a very memorable one, as he concerned himself with the comfort and the satisfaction of the guests on his airboat. I would highly recommend Loxahatchee Everglades Airboat Tours, and Marc as your tour guide.

This will be an unusual review as we never had a chance to take the tour. I booked a tour two days in advance for 2:00PM. Less than 24 hours after booking the tour I wrote an email to Mark asking for a refund as our travel plans had to be changed due to the Coronavirus epidemic. I received a text from Mark very early in the morning of our reservation asking us to consider taking an earlier tour as the weather conditions in the afternoon would be less conducive to seeing wildlife. There was a telephone number attached to the text so I called and Mark answered the phone. I explained my dilemma (he had not seen my email yet) and I had a credit ten minutes after we hung up. This is a small company faced with a severe loss of business and they refunded my money. Sure sounds to me like a company worth your support.
