“Very Good”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have taken several air boat tours over the year. To be sure, this one was one of the best due to a knowledgeable guide/captain, seeing various wild life creatures, and many alligators (we were able to see them very close up). The guide/captain was fun but serious in his driving and talks. The company supplied rain coats (due to a light rain falling), and tour ran a full one hour. Would strongly recommend this tour company over others in the area. You will not be disappointed.

“Awesome and Exciting!!!!!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This was our first airboat tour so don't have anything to compare it to but.....it was AWESOME!!!! Our airboat captain had alot of info. on the gators and able to answer all the questions asked. He made it exciting and made us feel at ease with his sense of humor!! It was a great experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone! Holding the small alligator at the end was a bonus! Keep your eyes peeled because you never know when a gator will pop up or appear!!

I did not know what to expect, but I did know I wanted to see alligators and I not only saw them I held them! Our tour guide was friendly and funny. Rick went out of his way to make our experience the best that it could be! Amazing experience! Don't hesitate to take this adventure!
Thank you!

“Best airboat tour”
Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Our third tour here, two with companies in Everglades City, now here with Captain Stanford. This was far and away the best tour. Lots of wildlife..many birds and 6 gators seen up close and personal. The lack of other boats unlike the EC experience really adds to the enjoyment. You feel all alone in the grass and mangrove glades. Same price as others, be sure you use the online coupon! Also, the staff were VERY nice which has not been our experience in EC!
