We had seen some of the big airboats which seat 20-30 people, and heard of tours lasting only half an hour or so, but we wanted a longer tour on a smaller and more personal scale. River of Grass Adventures certainly delivered on that with a tour of 90 minutes or so with just 7 passengers.
Our guide was Robby, a very personable young man who is both knowledgeable and passionate about this fascinating ecosystem. Although not the best time of year to see the wildlife, Robby knew where to look and we saw alligators and many birds in their natural habitat. His commentary each time we stopped was interesting and informative, and he was able to answer the many questions put to him by the group.
A first class tour.
