This tour gives you both a little history along with the animals that live in the everglades. And it a great trip for all ages. Anyone that likes adventure and fun. We saw alligators, snakes and all kind of different bird and even some cattle that live in the glades. Make sure you you make time to come with Captain Darald. Dress for the weather and the cool air on the water.

I would recommend this to anyone! The marshland is beautiful. Darald is a great captain, very knowledgeable. He and Dee are extremely friendly. You really see a lot of wildlife. It was a lot of fun.

This nature tour had to have been one of the most exciting and interesting thing I has ever experienced! I went with my 18 year old daughter and my boyfriends parents. My boyfriends father is 70 and absolutely terrified of water and has always refused to go on cruises and boats! He took a chance with this trip and said it was the best thing he's done in Florida and would love to go again!! Darald(the driver) is so smart and knowledgable about nature and what he knows amazed me! A ton of huge alligators! Absolutely amazing!

Thank Jenny B

THANK-YOU very much for taking a trip with us in Sunny Florida. From the first scream from daughter before we even left the dock I knew you folks would love the trip into REAL Florida. I am sorry you will have to head back to the cold so take back your warm memories and feel free to box up a few degrees to take with you. Hugs Captain Dee and THE Captain Darald

Very good trip. The rain only allowed us a hour tour. But it was fantastic!!! Darald was great with the kids and his history was well worth it. I will tell everyone to take the trip. Now Dave can take this off his bucket list but... we will do it again!! IT WAS AWESOME!!!! Thank You Dave Alvord & Nina Andrews from Liberty Center, Ohio

I called around to different tours in the area & this was the best tour for the money. Its run by a husband/wife, not a big corporation, so very personalized.  We got to see so many gators along with many other animals. Take your family on the 2 hour tour-you will love it. They take great care of you and make it a memorable experience.
