The thrill of a lifetime! This trip is a must-do for every Floridian; can't believe I waited 43 years to go. Did my research first and chose this outfit based on its stellar safety record and policy to NOT feed wildlife; so glad I did. Capt. Thompson, a third-generation Everglades resident, was phenomenal from the minute we stepped on the dock. Safety was clearly foremost; he treated my three children as his own and made sure each had ample time to experience the beautiful surroundings and creatures. We saw tons of alligator, several manatee (including a newborn) and a raccoon in the mangroves. The highlight was running full-speed through the mangrove tunnels; my children are begging to go again. Thompson also provided a fully-narrated ecotour (with two-way headsets - no other airboat outfitter has these!) which included lots of history and details about the Everglades. Forget Disney World; touring the River of Grass by airboat is a can't miss and is well worth the money.
