I have lived in Florida my whole life, but this was as close to Florida's true nature that I have ever seen with my own eyes! We had the wonderful Captain Krista. She was extremely knowledgeable and made sure to share many facts about the marsh and surrounding area. We saw well over 25 alligators and other wildlife, it was... More

Krista was our guide and made sure we had an absolute blast. She really knows her stuff! We learned so much about the native wildlife and area’s history, all while getting within a safe, yet close distance from some alligators! We saw over 20 gators on our excursion – tons of adults and a few little babies. We also saw... More

My dad passed away in 2016. He didn't want a "normal" funeral. He requested one more air boat ride as a celebration of his life. Captain John helped us make this happen. He worked with me over every element of this unusual request. We had to accommodate mothers with very young children and a full boat of mixed ages. I... More

Captain John was great. Very congenial and a great host, with a variety of great facts about the swamp and its wildlife. Not just an exciting boat ride but he found us a ton of gaters and other wildlife. Highly recommend going with Capt. John.

We booked for 5 people on the same day we went. Captain John and Krista were very welcoming and made this a very special trip. We saw over 2 dozen gators and turtles. The bird life was plentiful and Captain John's commentary added greatly to our enjoyment. It's a beautiful place with very gracious people. We will definitely do this... More

Showed up without booking ahead of time, and Captain John was able to squeeze in enough time to be able to show us the wonders of the wildlife! Captain John was extremely knowledgable about everything within the marsh. He made the trip very fun and exciting!! Would 10/10 go back for many more tours with John!!!!

Thank you very much. I'm glad we were able to make room and time, it's always a pleasure to take people out there that enjoy the wildlife. I think it was probably very obvious I love what I do. Wouldn't be possible without folks like you. So thank you again and I do look forward to seeing you in the... More
