Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

We went on a this tour with our kids (ages 10 and 13). The captain was very nice. They have small boats so the groups can't be too big, and the "stadium" seating ensures everyone a good view. I was a bit surprised that we...More

Captain Shane was the greatest tour guide I had ever experienced. Knowledgeable in ever aspect of the everglades. Showed us the plants, different grasses, explained the tides and environment and rain fall changes in during summer. Gave us a great ride.

We went at 10:30 to minimize the risk of a pop-up thunderstorm which would have cancelled the trip. Other than Ryan, earlier is a little cooler, later just as good but much warmer
