We chose this tour based on really positive Trip Advisor reviews, and some negative comments about the larger more commercially orientated operation that had been our original choice. Captain Bobby was our guide, he grew up in the area so was really knowledgable and very friendly. The trip was a mix of looking at wildlife, we saw an alligator and racoons, and fast runs through the mangrove.

We would recomend this to anyone who is thinking of taking an airboat tour, we were well looked after from start to finish by this family run business.

The tour and staff exceeded all our expectations. Very engaging, friendly and committed to make our tour the best of all others out there. The headphones were perfect, others don't have the mics to talk to Gary or Gene, the drivers. All passengers can hear each other as they speak. Really, they are a family business who put their customers first. They are in such demand that you need to call for reservations. So call ahead, the other tours don't compare. Thanks for a great tour!

Gary was our captain and gave us so much information, you could tell he loved his job., I get sea sick on boats, but this was great especially when we went fast.
We saw raccoons but only one huge alligator as the water here is too cold for them at the moment. It didn't matter though as the whole experience was amazing.

We chose this company based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were very pleased with our experience. Gene was our tour guide on March 28th, 2013. We took a 12:30pm tour and booked the day before.

Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Our tour guide Gene was fun and very informative.

This service is different then other companies because they provide a headset and offer information throughout the tour.

Friends offered to take us to the Everglades during a visit. My husband was thrilled when the airboat tour was mentioned. Previously our friends went on tour with another company and had a bad experience. After review, they selected this one. Wow are we glad. Staff could not have been friendlier. Having headsets that connected us to the tour guide and each other was wonderful and it cut out the engine noise. We were lucky to see 3 gators, swamp monkeys (raccones) and plenty of other wildlife and interesting trees/flowers. The airboat was very clean and comfotable. We loved going fast in the open areas and down those narrow waterways. Would do it again and hope others will. Bathrooms available on land.
