“Best adventure of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

I wish I could remember our guide's name. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We had a great time! We saw a few alligators really up close(!), many different birds and plants all of which the guide was able to tell us about.

“A fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We booked a semi-private tour but we had the chance to be the only couple onboard. Captain Willy really succeeded in transmitting us his passion for this beautiful area and its inhabitants: alligators, various birds but also delicate flowers. We especially loved his "surprise". It was memorable, thanks!

“As Close As You Would Want To Get”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was the first time I was ever on a private tour air boat. When my family would visit from the north we would always do the same thing and the same outfitter on 41. It always consisted of going to the cages of alligators that are old and blind and had been man handled for years then take their air"bus" tour with tons of other people. No explanation of the waters, Eco system or animals. You jumped on the ride and the tour operators didn't care if they talked or anything. This time around, we use Airboat in Everglades. Our tour was private with Capt. Ozzie and his love for the Glades showed straight through the regular tourist crap speeches you generally hear. I learned a lot (couldn't remember half of what I learned) found out information that was hard to be believe and he even gave demonstrations of what and how the Indians made teas, gauze, boats, foods, etc. The flora and fauna is amazing. Truly a great trip even the hardwood island tour was amazing. I think I short chained you in your tip! Don't worry I will be back with more friends and family they are always coming down and I will make up for it. Thanks again!

“a fun time for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We spent 90 minutes out on the Everglades with our guide, Willie. He was terrific and showed us more alligators than I ever imagined we could see. We even heard a large male gator "calling" to a female...it was amazing. Willie really knew his stuff and he even has a couple of trained birds that come around to "see" him and his guests.
We really enjoyed ourselves and this attraction is really close to Miami so it is an easy morning activity.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This tour is amazing! Ozzie was our tour guide and he is so knowledgeable about the Everglades and he is great at his job! We came up close to many different animals which was great! Ozzie is very funny and he really knows how to keep you entertained but at the same time feeds you with so much information. We took the private tour which lasted a little over an hour, but we had the whole boat to ourselves. I am glad we went that route because I feel like it was more personal and we got much more than we paid for!

I would definitely recommended this tour if you are looking for great insight into the Everglades or if you are looking for an all around fun time!!!

Thanks Ozzie :)
