Captain Tony was awesome! He also entertained us during the airboat ride through the Mangroves. What a hoot! Very adventuresome, exciting, with beautiful scenery. If you have the opportunity while in Florida, you need to put this on your list! You will not be disappointed! Carol from Naples, Florida.

Captain Wesley rocketed us through the waterways of the Everglades in a style reminicent to Han Solo piloting the Milenium Falcon in Star Wars. Not only was it an adrenaline pumping ride the calm moments were full of educational anicdotes from our charismatic captain. Booking was a bit convoluted but overall a brill blast.

We had a blast! While the weather was still too chilly to see any gators and the water too brackish, we did get to see manatees. And while those gentle beasts were a wonder to behold, it was the raccoons that really stole the show! We pulled into an small shelter area and there must have been 15 masked bandits... More

This was a great trip, excellent boat captain, friendly staff. On the Mangrove trip we didn't see much wildlife but the ride was worth it. Kids had a blast

Our guide Captain Javier was outstanding! He was knowledgable and answered questions. It was a little chilly to see gators, but Captain Javier showed us lots of other attractions.
