At one point he even made an alligator call and three gators came to our boat like he was calling his dogs that was very cool. You can definitely tell the guides have a passion... More

Last Friday, at 3pm, I took the 1:30 hour trip with captain Steve. I scheduled the trip just 1h early with Becky, who was very friendly and got me the best solution available for the same day. Amazing service simple and friendly... I arrived at the meeting point a bit early (2:45pm) and I was approached by a guy in... More

We had Captain Steve and he was excellent! This was our first trip to the Everglades. We booked the 60 minute group trip, but ended up having the boat to ourselves! Steve was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cared about the environment and the animals - we even attempted a baby bird rescue (he went back later with a net because... More

What a great trip! This was our first time in the Everglades. We did a 1.5 private tour. We saw everything promised: birds, a 3 leg soft shell turtle, and of course gators, both really big and really small (babies 4 weeks old). Our guide also carried a fishing pole and my son did a bit of fishing with bait... More
