Overview

Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

This is a really, really fun tour! Bill, our guide, was great. He struck a perfect balance between time spent talking to us about what we were seeing and time spent flying though the mangrove trees! It was fantastic!! Highly recommend this company and Bill!!

We booked through TripAdvisor, which uses a third party (I didn't realize it), and when we arrived they had no reservation for us. The staff was super helpful and thankfully I had the email where I had been communicating with whoever at the other company....More
