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 .

Wir gönnten uns eine 1 Stunde private Tour mit Airboat in Everglades. Alles hat hervorragend funktioniert. Treffpunkt war eine Shell Tankstelle. Wir wurden dort abgeholt und konnten mit unserem Fahrzeug ca. 1.5 km zu Startpunkt fahren. Unser Guide für die Tour war Willy, welcher sein Job absolut hervorragend gemacht hat! Während der Tour machten wir viele Stops, in welchen wir gleich zweimal Baby-Alligators mit ihren Mamas gesehen haben, viele Wasservögel bestaunen und einfach die einzigartige Everglades-Stimmung geniessen konnten. Zum Schluss durften natürlich die richtig grossen Alligatoren nicht fehlen, von denen wir gleich zwei sahen. Eine private Tour ist absolut zu empfehlen, semi-private kann ich leider nicht beurteilen.

If there was an option to give 10/10 I would do it in a second! I was soaking wet, freezing, rain is going into my eyes but I had so much fun! the guide ( I think William) was so funny, interesting and he knew exactly how to keep us entertained during the whole time. We saw so many alligators(big/ small ones and between), birds and great views! I will more than recommend going to your swamp tour through this company. Visited December 2015

We booked a 1.5-hour private tour for the day after Thanksgiving for four of us (2 adults, 2 children under 10). Jeff was our guide and he was excellent, both showing us the sights (alligators, birds, other wildlife) and with the children – helping my youngest daughter to get great photos of the alligators. The booking process was smooth as were the instructions on where and when to meet. Highly recommend!

You are looking for an experience where you can see alligators, birds, see why sawgrass is called that way, then you need to book that tour. Don’t do a group tour do a semi or fully private. It’s worth any penny. Say big and small gators, baby gators and the never-ending vast lands of grass. Its magical Visited December 2015

We booked online in advance and everything went smoothly. We not only received a confirmation but received updates when more people joined the boat. We were happy to have reservations because they sold out on the day after Thanksgiving. You have to drive out to 177th street on Hwy 41 but from where they guide you to the launch point which is only about 5 minutes away. Our guide, I think his name was Alex, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and took us to two spots where we found gators. His eagle eye could pick them out in the brush when no one else could see them. Our boat had 10 people which are a good size. I know we had a great time and I recommend this tour. I had never been on an airboat before but it is a lot of fun.

We have been to the Keys several times and never explored the Everglades. This trip we were driving from Key Largo to Sarasota and decided to do an airboat tour on the way. We chose the 1-hour group tour with Airboat in Everglades, which is limited to 10-11 people. You meet at the Pilot Travel Center. Step inside and there is a chair and tiny table to the left by the knives display. This is where you check in and pay. Then you follow the employee in your car about 1/2 mile due west and park in a little parking area near where the airboats are waiting. Our boat was supposed to have 10 people, but 4 people in one car were late showing up (they were going to be about 15 minutes late), and we went out without them – so 6 on the boat. Not sure what they did for the late people, so be on time! Each couple had their own row of seats (there are 3 total), which are stadium style so all can see. Our driver was very fun and knew a lot about the area we were touring. He took us to an area with young (1-2-3-year-olds) alligators, then we found a mom with her babies and finally spotted two big gators on the main canal. Water is provided in a cooler on the boat. It was in the mid 80’s the day we went out, and when you stop to look at the wildlife (birds, gators, etc…) you can warm up quickly as there is no shade. I loved the ride as well as the landscape we explored. Highly recommended. You do not get wet (unless it rains). Visited November 2015
