This tour is based in Parkland in the middle of nowhere and several companies operate here. You should know before you go that they only have a port-a-John for a bathroom and it was disgusting and hadn’t been serviced in a long time. We had the legendary “Wild Lyle” as our guide and while he was a nice man who tried hard and really wanted you to enjoy his tour it was very, very hard to hear him. They practiced strict social distancing where everyone wore a mask and they limited the amount of people on the airboat so you weren’t sitting on top of each other which was great. If you are a true nature lover who loves all the detail regarding the wildlife then he is certainly the best guide for you. He pointed out the birds, trees and vegetation as well as where the alligators nests were and pointed out their trails where they had been. He also found us several good sized alligators to see and one who stayed by our boat close by for several minutes looking at us. And on the way back we saw many baby alligators swimming across the bow of our boat. But we didn’t venture very far on the boat or have many long rides because Lyle was constantly stopping the boat every few seconds to point something out. But he kept repeating the same things over and over of showing us a trail in the cat tails of where alligators had been. This got a little boring and repetitive after a while. If you have kids they probably want to ride further out into the Everglades and go fast and this tour might bore them. But if you are a nature loving adult this guy would be the best. I should also mention if you have the option you should sit near the rear of the boat if possible. We had to sit near the front and Lyle was in the back driving the boat. Almost every time he pointed out something by the time I turned around to see where he was pointing it was too late and I missed it. I mentioned that his voice did not carry well and it was very hard to hear him talking even when we constantly removed our soundproof headphones. What would solve this problem would be to give Lyle a microphone and Bluetooth his voice through the headphones. But what I really liked about this tour is they didn’t stuff you into a boat with 25 other people looking through a windshield so you couldn’t see anything. You had direct unobstructed views with minimal people on a small more private airboat that was a good value.

We went on a fabulous tour today! Online booking was super easy. Very impressed with our amazing tour guide / air boat captain! His knowledge of the Everglades and the entire Florida ecosystem was vast. He was able to carefully and safely show us various animals that we never would have seen without his knowledge. The alligators were definitely our favorite but there were also plenty of interesting birds and other wildlife. We felt safe the entire time. Tips: Go to the bathroom before arriving at location; when you arrive, look for a small sign and you’re at the right place!
