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.
This airboat trip was amazing. I will never forget this experience. Our tour guide Bill showed us very special things and could tell us a lot about the birds, gators and plants. He is so enthusiastic and friendly, what makes the boat trip even more fun. I would suggest this trip to everyone!!!

Very nice and interesting airboat ride. There were 5 of us and we wanted something convenient on our layover day after a cruise. The ride was short, but we enjoyed it immensely – saw lots of birds and alligators. The guide made sure we got good pictures. Although it was odd meeting at a gas station, it worked out fine and it keeps their overhead low. We weren’t looking for anything fancy – just an airboat ride. BTW, this may sound strange, but try the churros at the little shack outside the gas station – OMG they were delicious! I had the chocolate filled, my aunt had the caramel filled and Mom had the plain – best churros we’ve ever had!Visited November 2014

Captain Moe was a fantastic tour guide on our trip through the Everglades. We took a 2 hour private tour and saw alligators, birds, and turtles. Captain Moe was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of great photo opportunities. Highly recommend this to anyone near the area.

Lee picked (6) of us up at the Hampton Inn Blue Lagoon from that point, it was On. He drove us to his Rendezvous point. It’s a shell gas station the last chance to get supplies Sunscreen,cold drinks,snacks, restroom. Then drove us a short distance to the airboat landing. That’s when the we met Captain WILLY our airboat pilot. I booked this weeks ago we chose the private 2 hour ride. Well well worth it. We had a wonderful ride stopping many times for pictures and comments from Captain Willy. This is a huge area and Captain Willy really knows the great spots to take you. The day we had was ideal. We started at 10:20 am. None of us had ever been on an airboat before. My wife and daughter in law really didn’t know how this would be. They were the ones that couldn’t stop talking about it the rest of the day. My daughter in law took many great pictures one of which she captured a Osprey diving in the water and getting a fish. Her pictures shows the whole process even flying with the fish in his claws. We saw a green Iguana on land,Captain Willy said it’s only the second one he’s seen in years. We saw a pair of soft shell turtles that were the biggest I’ve ever seen. Now let’s talk about the alligators. We happen to be there during the drought. Which we saw that the fish have less water to swim in so it’s feeding time for the alligator. They work together only at this time,To catch these fish When the water is higher they don’t get along like they do now. Honestly we saw between 80-100 different gators some as close as 4 feet from the boat. Cool as anything to be that close. This is by far the group you want to be with.

Nous avions sélectionné la formule 1 heure semi privée suite à la lecture des autres avis du site et franchement la prestation est de grande qualité : nous avons eu la chance de voir de grands alligators mâles, des femelles et aussi des bébés. Notre capitaine, Alex, nous a apporté un grand nombre d’explications, il est vraiment très sympa. On ne voit pas l’heure passer tant le dépaysement est total.Nous voyageons avec des enfants de 6 et 10 ans. N’hésitez pas à réserver ! .

Ce fut une expérience incroyable! 1h en privée avec Javier. Ce sont des passionnés. Nous en avons beaucoup appris sur les alligators et nous avons eu la chance d’en voir! Très impressionnant! Superbe expérience et l’équipe est au top! Ça vaut le détour! Rendez vous donné à une station essence, on les suit ensuite pendant 10min jusqu’à l’airboat. Toutes les explications et la passion sont là. Un vrai moment de plaisir! Je recommande à 100%!!!! Merci beaucoup à l’équipe! .

Schöne und erlebnisreiche Tour; absolut profihafte Durchführung, auch wenn der Treffpunkt an einer Tankstelle liegt; man sieht in dieser Stunde wirklich viel und die Guides sind sehr professionell und vermitteln einem viele interessante Informationen; über E-Mail beim Veranstalter 3 Tage vorher direkt gebucht – ohne Probleme; sehr gut investierte $ 50.– pro Person .
