Our airboat guide, Captain Chad, was very informative and knowledgeable about the boat and the Everglades. Just too short of a tour, would do it again with him, but book a longer tour. He was Great!

“Simply amazing !!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

We booked a 2 hour private tour whilst on holiday with a best friends and it was money well spent. Captin Willy is the man, from the very being he got as four of us involved and lead us on an amazing adventure, it was very informative and we saw lots of alligators and birds. Captin Willy takes his time to explain everything and even feeds the gators and birds. This is a must for anyone in the area, simply amazing

“Fun Airboat Ride with Captain Willy”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We had a 45 minute tour of the Everglades with 6 other people on our air boat which was a nice number. Willy was very informative and said he'd been going out on the boats since he was 11! We saw a handful of Alligators who came up to the boat and other wildlife which our captain told us lots about. It was a really fun and relaxing trip and I would definitely recommend it.

One useful bit of info that would have been of benefit to us was that the directions you get once you book a trip are to a gas station and you meet someone there who you then follow in your car to the air boats. My husband and I were driving up and down the road like idiots looking for an office or shop for about 20 mins but thankfully we allowed enough time for getting lost!!

“This is the best Airboat ride - The everglades at it's best!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We've been on other airboat rides where they were too short or too commercial - even if they said you were going to tour a native village. This is the real deal! It's adventure, excitement and the Everglades as it should really be seen. We had Willy as our Captain and nature guide and he was great at both. Although unusual even for him, we saw over 60 alligators in one 30 foot section of a canal. It seems like Willy was a proverbial encyclopedia regarding the Everglades. He could tell you about eveery plant, animal and bird that you saw and he knew where to find them. This was such a great trip it would evem be worth the drive from the Orlando area versus what we have ridden in Orlando and vicinity. We took my sister and brother-in law with us and were concerned that they would not like it. Later, they told us it was the highlight of all the things we had done on our cruise. We also thought the price was very reasonable/.

“A great time”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

I was not too sure about this, when I was waiting to be met at a nearby gas station. It turned out to be a great activity for the family. Our driver showed a real passion for the glades and was a great tour guide. We saw many gators, large and small. We enjoyed the birds and other wildlife in this beautiful area. Highly recommended.
