Captain Kenny was very knowledgeable and seemed determined to part ways with all other boats in order to get eyes on some gators! It was a cloudy day so be prepared with a longsleeve!

Captain Kenny was the best! He was knowledgeable on gators, vegetation, and wildlife we saw on our excursion. Captain Kenny also took the time to stop the boat for us to get good pictures of the gators. We would recommend the Marsh Beast Airboats as a must do when visiting Vero. Make sure to get Captain Kenny! We can't wait... More

What a fun day trip for our family. Captain Kenny is a great guide and taught us all about this little piece of wildlife heaven. Kenny is very knowledgeable about all of the birds, gators and vegetation. We even got to see baby alligators! We will definitely go again later in the day as he said we would see more... More

This was our third tour with Marsh Beast and each was better than the last. We had Captain Lindsey for this tour and he was great!! We had two young grandsons with us this trip and he answered all their questions with patience, knowledge and humor. I would never book with any other tour company when we have experienced the...

What a difference the right guide makes. Captain Kenny is hands-down the best guide in the everglades. Don't even bother with the rest, he's the gold standard. Fantastic trip, extremely informative, this is the tour to take!

We went on the tour today and had a fantastic time. There was our group of 3 plus another 2 people. Kenny the guide took us all around the marsh looking as alligators. He is so knowledgeable about the area wildlife and plant life. He gave us plenty of stops along the way to take pictures. Definitely recommend booking through... More

My In-laws are from Arizona, so this was a real treat for them. Going on an airboat tour has been on my Mother-in-laws bucket list for a long time. We had several concerns regarding my Mother-in-laws heath issues. In addition to vision she wears hearing aids, and has sever balance issues. Out guide Kenny, was so gracious and considerate. He...

the boat was immaculate and booking process very easy with good pre-tour service. Captain Kenny was totally brilliant, his knowledge of the local plants, birds and wildlife really made the tour extra special. Our tour lasted longer than expected which was an added bonus, but that was a measure of how much our guide Kenny wanted to make sure we... More
