Choosing an Airboat Tour wasn't as easy as I expected. After an online search and several calls I had a better understanding of what to look for. It seems many are on a regular loop with boats leaving every 15 minutes, that's not what we wanted. We wanted a more private tour where we were likely to see some wildlife. Some operators said we might not see any gators this time of year; also, if boats were just through the area every few minutes, won't they get spooked? So we chase an early morning tour (8AM really 5 am for us west coasters). It was worth it. My 10 yr old daughter kept a running gator count. In our two hours we saw countless birds and 35 gators! Our captain and all of the other personnel were great! I highly recommend this tour. My only comment would be that they update their website.

Let's put it this way ... We saw at least 70 alligators, ranging from numerous babies to large gators Young Captain Bill also showed us numerous nests of various birds that inhabit the Everglades. It was two hours of exhilaration. Captain Bill (not to be confused with his grandfather who we met and was a terrific gentleman) was extremely knowledgable of the area. Important to note it was a private tour. Took our nine and twelve year old. Our kids said it was awesome and very cool.

Captain Wayne Gilbert gave us a fantastic two hours. His boat is fast and the ride was exciting and informative. Captain Wayne knows where to go and explain about the history and wildlife of the everglades. We had plenty of opportunities to take pictures of aligators and birds. I really enjoyed the speedy boat.

We went Christmas eve and it was well worth the drive. It was both educational and fun. My boys were 16 and 18 and they had a great time. It would be a good trip for younger children also. The captain we were with was professional and entertaining.

Private trip is the way to go. Captain Rob was very informative about the area flora, fauna, history, water and politics. He showed us plenty of gators, birds, wildlife, wild edibles, etc. Loved the talk on frogging and being in the Everglades at night. That would be a blast! Cruising along on smaller powerful airboats was a rush too.Thanks for the extra time Captain. The wife and I will be back again.
