My family and I we referred to this company and we are glad we were able to go out with this firm. Our captain, Rich was fantastic maneuvering this boat around the area and tracking a few gators to see. He explained the ecosystem and its surrounding and made the ride not only fun but intersting. My kids thought this was a great time, and some time they are the hardest of critics.
We did see three gators, all good size and one of them was very interested in us and would comve up very close for a couple of looks. What a great experirence with a great company!
Thanks for a great experience, well worth the money!

My brother and I took the tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Because of the time of year it was just the two of us and our tour guide James. James was a very friendly and knowledgable guide and we would strongly recommend him and this business for anyone looking to your the Everglades. We saw one alligator but it was a big bloke!! Overall a great time.

Saw 1 6 foot alligator for $40 per person. Worst airboat tour ever, and also the most expensive. Ride was 30-40 minutes, not the promised hour.

We are very sorry you feel you were shorted but did not come to management. Time passes very quickly when on our tour and all trips are logged in with a radio call to start and logged at return. Alligators are wild on our land not caged for for tourist to see. The gator farms have cages for this purpose. Our tour is about nature and education of the Everglades not just a ride to see alligators,we apologize if this was thought to be only a fast ride. Thanks mgt

We went on a tour today of a part of the Everglades near Naples, and enjoyed it thoroughly. The guide was most informative, and took us right up to the alligators. It was an exciting hour's worth, and I am so glad we did it!

We highly recommend this particular company.

My partner and I took my partner's family(daughter,3 children, and son in law0 on an airboat adventure in the Florida Everglades. It was great because our guide was Conrad. He explained about the mangroves, the 3 kinds. We saw many alligators along the canals and at Alligator Island he explained the value of the rain storm the day before. As we are having a drought in Florida it has been very hard on the water animals. Later we held a 2 year old alligator. It had a strange feel to it. Where we live in Ft Myers we have alligators in all our ponds. He made it much more interesting.
