Eight of us - including a 5 year old and 3 year old - went on this tour on July 2nd. Although it rained, we still had a memorable experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the swampland and its inhabitants and we were able to see up close a female alligator guarding her nest and an alligator with a tooth stuck in his snout from a previous fight! Our guide was thoughtful in trying to drive us around the rain, but in the end it was unavoidable. We didn't care, however, and felt it only added to the experience! Holding a baby gator at the end was the cherry on top of an amazing experience!

I brought my Grandson and friends today on the airboat tour. Our Captain, Sanford, did a great job assuring that we had a wonderful time. It was definitely a learning experience and so enjoyable. We were fortunate to be able to see a female alligator guarding her nest and later saw a large male with an extra tooth jutting from his "snout". The scenery was beautiful, the weather cooperated, and our Captain provided a great narrative and ride through the Everglades. All employees were friendly and welcoming. Would definitely do it again! Well worth every penny spent!

The guide was skilled with the boat. He had an interesting knowledge of the environment, and he knew how to get us close up looks at the gators. Never knew there was a marsh rabbit, but we saw that too. He made us feel safe the entire time. And then holding the baby gator at the end was a nice way to end the time. This is one of the highlights of our week.

I took my wife and my 2 1/2 old daughter here early in the morning when they just opened...also one of the best time to see wildlife. We had such a great time!!!! We saw plenty of alligators (which is not a 100% certain) and just the sheer beauty of the Everglades! My wife said that she was glad we went and experienced this. I am a outdoor kind of guy and love being around nature...if this is you then go for it...if not give it a shot...the air boat gets some speed plus with all the turns makes it even more intresting

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!
