This was our first airboat experience in the Everglades and it's been fantastic ! This place is friendly, the staff is really kind. They give a lot of information. We were afraid that it would be a tourist trap because we've seen many websites with huge airboats for a lot of people. Can you imagine that we were only 2 (my boyfriend and myself) on the airboats with the captain. He was so funny but knew everything about the region, the animals, etc. We have seen many alligators, birds.. At the end of the tour, we took in our hands a small alligator ! We strongly recommend it and we will go back for sure with the kids.

Conrad was a great captain and tour guide - very knowledgeable about the area. Thanks to his sharp eyes we got to see an alligator sunning itself in the grass. This was our first airboat ride so we had no idea what to expect. This trip was the perfect mix of information, boat ride and sight seeing. Holding the baby alligator at the end was really cool. I highly recommend this company and our captain!

Now isn't that why we go on the airboat rides? We had a great Captain, Mike, friendly, informative and he got us up close to some alligators for great picture taking! A speedy ride through the swamps and mangroves, we saw various bird species and alligators of various sizes, lounging in the sun or swimming on the top edge of the water! Really fun!
Oh, you can hold a baby alligator, too! It makes for great pics ! :)

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.

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!!
