We chose this charter from an internet search because they said they were family owned. I'm SO happy we did! Captain Greg Brown and his son David were wonderful. The ride was awesome! David was a wealth of knowledge from faun to history to wildlife. He was amusing and engaging. We saw alligators up close and personal, birds and there was even a pretty good ghost story to boot! Thank you for a memorable experience. Very authentic and not at all "touristy". My boys will never forget ti.

This family owned business is the best airboat ride we had, we went up close and personal with Bobby the alligator. My 5 year old son was amazed of this beautiful animal. This father and son are not just in businrss to pay the bills but also out there in the everglades educating visitors from all over the world that we should take care of nature and preserve our home earth.
The family from Boston MA.

We had a very good time. Felt always safe. The driver was very well accustomed to the location and had a sound knowledge of the history and environment. The family run business provides a warm and friendly service.

First, if you are not sure whether you want to take a tour of the Everglades, stop wondering and do it. It is without a doubt the most beautiful part of Florida.

I wanted to book a trip with my friend who grew up in Miami and had fallen in love with the Everglades as a child but had not been back in decades. We had both been on an airboat tour in central Florida previously, but I wanted something less crowded. We were booked with Capt. Greg & Son by another airboat operator and we could not have been happier. We went out for two hours with Capt. Dave (Greg's son) who has grown up in the business. My friend told me after our tour that everything Dave told us about the history, ecology, and preservation efforts to date was accurate. (And Dave even told him a few things he didn't know). It was very clear that Dave loves the history of the area, has spent a lot of time exploring it on his own, and wants to protect the Everglades. There's more than just gators to the Everglades and Capt. Dave showed us a lot of it, but rest assured you'll see the gators, too.

If you are looking for a tour for only a couple of people you will probably find this quite pricy, but the cost is not unreasonable considering the expense involved and the time Greg and Dave have to spend before and after the tour for travel and preparation. It sounds like they are amenable to having a larger group, and that would bring the cost per person down considerably. But even for only a couple people you should consider it money well spent. The Everglades is without a doubt the most beautiful part of Florida and having a private tour was well worth it to us.

Follow their advice about sunscreen, hats, and how to dress and you'll have a great time. Finally, you would probably like having an actual camera, rather than a phone camera, for this trip, but we did okay with our phones.
