“The best airboat tour in the Everglades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My girlfriend and I had an absolute blast with Humberto, our airboat guide. Definitely do at least an hour tour because it is so much fun. It was a private tour with just the two of us and their rehabilitation island that they took us to was wonderful and we were able to hold some of the small animals. Humberto was extremely knowledgable and very personable. We will definitely be back and would recommend them to all of our friends and family.

“Go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We really enjoyed this trip. This is not the trip where you will have the tourist package with alligator wrestling and things like that but a calm trip where you will learn a lot.
We phoned and made an 1 hour trip for our family of 4 persons which cost 50 dollars per person.
You have to drive a little further down the road then the other places - but a very nice and educative trip and we actually ended up getting longer time then one hour. The guide was very nice.
We went in the morning at 9.30 and that was a bit on the cold side when we were sailing - bring a sweather just to be on the safe side.

Would love to go again on a longer trip or maybe try their night trip.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This was the second time when I bring my friends to this company. I like their approach - pretty much they do private tours and doesn't matter how many in the party. First time we were 10, this time only 3 - but we got the same tour around the Everglades with stop on the island. You can even ask to sail faster if the weather conditions allow.

“Cold but fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We went on a day when the weather was cold (60 degrees). flying around on that boat was cold. But the tour guide was great. We stopped at two islands and saw a variety of wildlife. aligators, turtles, birds, a boar, etc. The guide even got down and petted a 10 foot aligator. It was amazing.

“Don't Miss This”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

This is the way to experience the Everglades! It was fun and fascinating. I just wish the boat operator was more knowledgeable about the ecosystem. I love this up with a tour of the Big Cypress National Preserve and you really get the bigger picture of much of Florida's natural history.
