We had a great time! Saw over 100 alligators on our tour and some really beautiful birds. It was really fun.

We had a wonderful time on this tour with Rhett - a super enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The tour begins with an easy walk where we learnt about the landscape of the Everglades. The reptile show offered us experiences we’d never had before - holding snakes and a baby alligator. The boat ride was even more rewarding - we saw over 20 alligators, soft and hard shell turtles, and an amazing range of birds. It was a highlight of our trip!

Air Boat rid only

There were two parts to the trip. The first part was a 1 & 1/2 mile walk through a nature wilderness. It was very boring. Not much to see. We certainly could have done without this part of the trip. The second part was an Air Boat ride. It was great. I would have paid the entire amount just to take the airboat ride. I later found out you can just do the air boat ride by itself. That is the best way to go.

Hi Richard, I'm sorry you were disappointed in the nature walk. Most people find the walk with the biologist educational and fun. There are 40 different airboat companies that offer just an airboat ride but we do a safari that includes the nature walk, reptile presentation and the airboat ride and what sets our airboat ride apart from others is we offer the networked headsets that quiet the airboat and allow guests to hear the narration from the biologist guide. That's not something offered on tours that do just the airboat ride. Either way I appreciate your feedback.

The family had a great time and learned a lot. They say it was one of the high points of the trip. They saw lots of birds and even more alligators. It’s definitely worth your time to go.

Our tour guide, Peter i believe, was very knowledgeable and made the entire excursion very enjoyable. My kids, age 11 &13 both loved it, especially the reptile show. They held snakes and an alligator. The wildlife viewing on the fan boat was spectacular. Would 100% recommend the half day eco tour. It exceeded our expectations.

This was an Awesome experience. Heidi was a great guide and wonderful with the children. I was shocked by the amount of gators we actually saw and it was great seeing them in their own environment. Heidi put the children in the front row and was very good with them during snake and gator time. Very patient and answered all questions. We never felt hurried and with children that's a plus. :) Worth every penny. Don't forget to tip!!

Our guide, Rhett, was personable, accommodating & very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the entire 4 hours. Even though our walking part of the tour was a flooded mess, Rhett made the experience fun & interesting.

Hello Corey, I am glad you enjoyed your tour with Wildlife Biologist Rhett. It should be noted that the swamp walk, in which everyone is directed to wear water shoes or shoes that you don't mind getting wet because you will be walking in water is part of the thrill of the experience. At this time of the year we have the good fortune, as advertised to walk in the cool waters of the Everglades. Thank you for your feedback.

Our driver/guide, Rhett, was so informative and enthusiastic about the wildlife that we were thoroughly entertained all the way to and from the Everglades. The airboat ride was just perfect and even though it was a very cool and windy day!!! Our guide was quick to point out wildlife as we went along. Don’t miss this wonderful outing when you’re in south west Florida.
