Captain Josh was an excellent guide for my wife, 3 y/o daughter, 7 m/o son and myself. Great price. Our kids were both free. We found many sand dollars and shells on a boundary island beach and had a pod of dolphins swimming around the boat. Great time!

The highlight of our trip. Our tour guide John was personable & knowledgeable. The airboat ride was a blast & Capt. Lebow was very entertaining. It was a thrill to see a 10ft gator in its natural habitat. I think taking the morning tour was the way to go. We saw lots of gorgeous birds. The January temps started in the high 60's, & warmed up thru the morning, I just needed a light jacket. A short nature show followed, where you could hold a young gator if you wished.

I took a dolphin-shelling tour from the Goodland Island yesterday with 2 of my friends. It was an amazing experience. The captain was very knowledgeable and we saw many dolphins, including 2 babies’ dolphins. The place where the captain took us had probably about 30 dolphins swimming around so we were able to take some beautiful photos. The next stop was at the Cape Romano , beautiful site for pictures. There is a beautiful blue lagoon close to the Cape Romano for shelling. We found some amazing shells and water was very clear so you could spot a lot of life underwater.
When we arrived back we received pictures from the trip, what a great way to keep our memories. Thank you Steve for a wonderful experience!

With short notice, we were able to schedule our tour for the next afternoon and met Kieu and Steven at our hotel for paperwork. They took a slightly larger group in the van and the CEO Steven took my wife and me on a separate tour. Steven spent most of the tour giving us information about the area, the Everglades, all of the animals, as well as info on the ecology of the area. We went on a wonderful walk on a boardwalk to see and learn about the plants,animals, and the Everglades. A special treat at the end of the boardwalk was a small pond with an alligator, wood storks, tri-colored heron, egrets, etc. Then we had a fun airboat rode where we saw the mangroves and even more gators and birds. Finally, we had an educational session on gators and even got to hold (and kiss) a small gator. It was a wonderful afternoon and was topped off by having pics and videos of our adventure emailed to us that evening. John from Ohio
