We picked this trip at random & all 5 of us had a great time! It was hot, but not bad when boat was moving. Our kids (ages 5, 8 & 10) all loved it. Had a great tour guide. Only advice is wear earplugs!!

Great time - the highlight of our 4th of July - Capt Mark is an excellent pilot and great storyteller. We saw Gators and got within 3 feet or less each time. Hopefully the state will accelerate the opening of freshwater to push the mangroves...More

Captain Lewis took our family on a tour of the Everglades. We got real close to a couple of huge Gators as Captain Lewis seemed to call them over. Great trip and a great Captain!

An airboat tour around the Everglades is a must! My parents-in-law had done a similar trip several times with other companies but were really impressed by Captain Mitch tours. Lewis took us out on the boat and explained lots about the history of the land,...More

Mark was an amazing captain, showing us the gators, birds and the general nature of the Everglades. The boat was loud, so maybe bring earplugs.

Captain Lewis did a great tour. He did not get lost and found alligators to photograph. We will recommend that tour to others

What an amazing experience!! I can't say enough positive things about the airboat ride, it would've been worth it just for the ride. We saw about 8 gators, all at least 6 foot long and about half of them swam right up to the boat...More
