While down from Alaska my dear wife wanted to experience a airboat ride. As we usally just wing our choices as to what tour or hotel we did the same here. we dropped into everglades private airboat tour We thought private meant " a boat to our selves" not so this means private land. so the company owns the all the land that the ariboats operate. We were greeted by a very nice young lady with a very welcoming smile who took our money for the tour and offered no further information as to how long when was the tour going to start or where to go while waiting for the boat ride. I had to ask all these questions myself??? once i figured it out we waited for 20 mins then were greeted by CAPT Corey our guide. we were very lucky to have got him as our guide. he is a 3rd generation everglade resident and was very knowledgable and offered all of his information on all of the local wild life and plant life. I learned a lot about the everglades from him. Capt Cory`s boat handeling skills were excellent and i also learned that everglades private airboat tour uses a 15 min interval checkin process with their boats so they will not crash into one another. this was a concern because another company had a crash that day. we sall Big Alligators small alagators, mom alligators with a whole bunch of baby alligators. and yes Capt Cory demonstrated the envelope of the airboat. we had a great time that ended with the holding of the baby alligator. we would reccomend this company and we would do this again.

The airboat ride was fabulous. Captain Rick took the time to point out interesting wildlife including a mother alligator and her babies. We were so glad we took this tour. We also enjoyed holding the baby alligator after the ride.

Great ride, great guide, speeding through the mangrove forests and seeing huge male alligator and smaller female in their separate habitats. Hour trip is just the right amount of time, windy and the motor does make a lot of noise.

Hi from Canada...my 15 year old daughter and I along with my parents did this tour with Captain Dwayne. He was not only good looking but one hell of a captain who showed us a great time!!!! This is a great experience for all and well worth every penny spent!

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.
