“Great Ride, Small Boats!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

What an excellent tour and reasonably priced! This company is owned by a family from the Indian Reservation allowing you to make stops at their old hunting camp and the "island" where they used to live. Loved the small boats compared to the bigger ones I have taken before. Much more intimate tour. The guide was very knowledgable about all the animals and plants in the area. A great tour if you have a curious child and they are full of information to share and have some baby alligators you get to touch!

“Unforgettable Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Everglades is beautiful, and an air boat is the only way to see it! Captain Bill lead my wife and I on an amazing tour through the everglades! He was very friendly, and had excellent skill handling the air boat in a fun and safe way. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was interesting and unparalleled. He also knew the area of swamp like it was his backyard, and was familiar with what was happening in the swamp at that time. This knowledge combined with his intuition for what we looking for made for a spectacular afternoon.
Thanks again Captain Bill

“Gators, Turtles and whole lot of FUN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Our family did this ride today and it was awesome. We left the dock area on the side of route 41 and we were right in the Everglades. It was really a great experience. We have done other airboat rides before. This one was more action packed.

Humberto was our guide. He was great. He seemed very knowledgeable. The really neat part of this tour as opposed to others we have done in the past is that we visited 2 islands in the Everglades. We we able to get off the boat and walk around and our guide showed us many animals that live in the area. We even had the opportunity to touch and hold a baby alligator. The second island there were cold drinks available to purchase.

This was a really cool experience, and a definite a must do. A tip there really is nowhere close by to eat so either bring snacks or eat before going and there is no restroom with running water. There is a port-a-potty. I will say it was quite clean for port-a-potty standards, but if this is not your thing find a restroom to use before coming and/or bring handsanitizer.
