We did the 90 min personal tour with Captain Willy. From the very start he set us at ease and explained what to do (and what not!)
The tour was incredible, taking in the wildlife and water like the back of his hand.
Willy clearly loves this place and it shows in his knowledge and enthusiasm. He considers the animals his friends (and they him by todays showing)
We saw alligators aplenty, right alongside the boat at times, turtle, numerous birds, fish etc.
The diverse plant and wildlife blew me away and was far more than I expected.
An amazing hour and a half, well worth every penny!
Cheers Willy (I will never look at Cheetos the same again!)

What a soul filling experience we had! I was touched so much by the way I felt out there in the wide open Everglades, that tears came to my eyes!Our captain, Willy, was the best! He loves and respects all that the nature of the Everglades offers. He made our trip fulfilling in that he took time to just allow us to soak in all the beauty that was around us. The trip was way too short, so next time we will spend more time out there with Willy🐊 Willy had so much knowledge to share with us and we took such an appreciation of the Everglades with us, because of how and what he shared with us. We have the best photos to always remember this bucket list adventure! We were impressed by the ease of making the reservations for this adventure. Everyone we came in contact with, through your company were professional, friendly and truly wanted us to have an adventure of a Lifetime! Thank you for making this happen for us! See you next time when we visit the Keys!
Husband and I were in Florida over the holidays and wanted to check off an airboat ride from our bucket list. We took a 90 minute private tour with Captain Lo, and he was awesome! We saw many alligators, big and small, turtles, and birds. Captain Lo taught us a lot about the Everglades and the wildlife, he was funny, interesting and a great tour guide. We felt totally safe with him, and wished we booked a longer ride because we only scratched the surface. It was a bit cloudy and chilly so we wore windbreakers and pants, didn’t get wet at all, and were given protection for our ears because the boat is pretty loud when it’s moving fast. There were drinks on the boat and we brought a few snacks, including some popcorn that Lo let us feed to the gators! Great experience, would 100% recommend to family and friends.
We took a two hour private tour with Captain Pete. While it was more expensive than the other tours, It was worth the money. We saw many alligators, a turtle and beautiful birds. The vast everglades are breathtaking. It was worth taking this tour so we could explore the natural beauty of the everglades.
What an amazing experience !!! He made it for me and my wife to feel absolutely comfortable !!! What an amazing guy and truly knowledgeable in what he does. Like he said this is not a job.. but something he loves to do everyday. You can see this in his heart.. Also I am writing this 20 minutes after our experience! These Airboat Tours are awesome!

We did a 1.5 hour private sunset tour with Captain Lo and it was amazing! I had done an airboat ride before but it sucked compared to this one. Captain Lo made this a great experience with his extensive knowledge and great boat-handling skills. He showed us several alligators and some really cool birds and we really appreciated how respectful he was to the environment. It was the perfect way to introduce us to southern Florida and learn about the Everglades. Highly recommend.

There is a special level of concern one has when meeting up at a sketchy gas station and handing over a credit card to pay $$$ to some stranger in the deep south of Florida. I can’t tell you that I was entirely comfortable with the process even after meeting with the people running the airboat adventure. We were asked to follow a van that was the only “Corporate Branded” item in the entire process which, oddly, made me feel a little at ease.
Even if the process was not perfect, and the meet up was an adventure to itself, the boat ride was AWESOME. We were whisked across the grassy everglades and brought deep into places that we would never have been able to access. We were concerned that we wouldn’t see alligators but we saw many of them. Our Captain was amazing, he was knowledgeable, funny and full of information about the local wild life. We took a 1 hour private package (Totally worth it!!) with our 2 kids and they were able to see and enjoys all aspects of the everglades.
We had an awesome time and the kids tell us this was the highlight of their trip!!
I would highly recommend this tour , fantastic pilot Willie was very informative and you could tell he is passionate about nature . We saw a variety of wildlife and some baby gators and some very large ones . If you are in the glades this is a great tour !! We came from Ireland, so this was a true Florida experience!!
This was a fantastic tour. There was an accident that held everyone up from getting there, but the crew was super accommodating to ensure no one was left behind. The captain gave us background about the airboats, and made sure to point out all the gators. A large male swam up to the boat to greet us. Highly enjoyable trip, with a great crew! Thank you
