It was a cold and rainy day, but we still had a great time and saw lots of animals and birds. Julio, our guide, was very knowledgeable, accommodating and caring! The boat guides were fantastic as well and made sure we all had a chance to observe the animals - we saw a lot of dolphins, as well as white and brown pelicans, and even saw a spoonbill.

This was our first time on an airboat, and it was amazing! We had a wonderful time with our tour guide Scott! Would definitely recommend as a summer activity, we went in December, and it was a bit too cold.

Guides were awesome and extremely knowledgeable. Super fun and they know how to keep you entertained very well with jokes and knowledgeable information about the Everglades at the same time.

Amazing experience to see what is a real signature of Florida, Everglades. I had so much fun with my kids. Boats are too noise though, we could have had even more fun with good earmuffs.

Great first time experience for us and it was as described. Friendly staff and good experience. The little restaurant is cozy and nice too.
