The tour we booked was amazing! it is not necessary to book the trip bc you can go there and just sign in for a tour. they are located in a gas-station so at first you don´t really know where it is. so if you search for them just by navigation, you have to go inside the shop and then sign up. for the trip you need a hat/cap and sunglasses because the tour is normally during the time where the sun is burning so if you don’t want to risk a sunburn, bring some sunscreen. The airboat is a lot of fun bc sometimes they drive really fast. I am pretty sure that you will see some alligators bc the guides know exactly where they are swimming. If yo have luck, you may see some baby alligators. So all in all I can highly recommend this tour!
Victor was our captain and he’s brilliant. It was so much fun and we were lucky e ough to see two mother gators guarding two nests at different spits on the tour, 2 baby gators, 2 large male gators and one female gator. The highlight was the male gator sinking under the water and attacking the female right next to the boat and splashing us all. Unreal experience.
Thanks Mo… – Matt Capt. Mo did a great job it was an outstanding experience and I would recommend this tour to all. Lots of wildlife / gators/ turtles / birds and fish. And very education regarding the ecosystem of the Everglades.
Not sure where some of the negative comments are coming from. We took the private ride. What a blast!!! It took all of 5 minutes before we were out on the glades cutting through the water. Kudos to Capn Mo for his skills and vast knowledge of the everglades and it’s inhabitants. A shout out to “Jumper” and “Pretty Boy”, two of the local reptilian residents. We also saw a gator nest with Mama close by and two young gators at another location. Special visits with a couple of feathered friends that hitched a ride with us. All so cool!!
We took semi private air boat trip with this company. Our captain was Willie. The trip was on my bucket list! It lasted an hour and fulfilled our expectations. Willie was very friendly and informative and made our trip fun. I would definitely recommend this airboat tour to anyone.
Very well organised trip. We got picked up directly from our apartment and driven to the location of the airboats. We took the 1.5 hour long boat tour during which we’ve seen loads of alligators. The guide was very informative and friendly. Great alligator viewing experience
I booked an Everglades Airboat private tour and off-road adventure tour with these guys and they exceeded my expectations! They had a great driver pick us up at our hotel (he entertained us along with gave us a lot of Everglades and Miami “nuggets” for our ~ 1-hour trip to start our adventure. We then started out on a ~2 hour Everglades airboat tour and it was fantastic! Our airboat driver was very knowledgable about the Everglades and catered our tour to what we were most interested in. He often stopped and spent the time explaining and showing us a lot of minor details (specific birds, gator nests, etc). We then transitioned over to a ~ 1-hour off-road adventure and even though our 1st vehicle broke down (those things happen with off-roading), it didn’t phase these guys as they quickly secured us a different vehicle with very little inconvenience to us. The off-roading driver also tailored how “rough” he should conduct our excursion based on our reaction and early experiences. Overall I give these guys “two thumbs up” and would highly recommend not only their services but also both the Everglades Airboat tour AND the Off-Road excursion. Thanks, guys!
I agree with many of the reviews that meeting at the gas station was a bit unorthodox and appeared a little sketchy. However, I trusted all the reviews and went with it. It was my husband, 11 y.o., 6 y.o., and me. The air boat guide – William – was very engaging, knowledgeable of the flora and fauna, answered all our questions, and provided great entertainment and enjoyment of the natural beauty of the Everglades. A highlight of our trip to Florida that we won’t forget.
I don’t know how anyone could give this tour less than 5 stars!!! My family of 5, including two 5 year olds (who were free) and a 7 year old just went on this tour and we all loved every second of it. I lost count of the number of alligators we saw. Our tour guide William was great, he was very informative and stopped regularly to point out various birds or alligators. This tour really surpassed my expectations.
