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.

Rhett was a fantastic guide and was incredibly knowledgeable! We got to learn and handle turtles, snakes and even a baby gator. Fred was our airboat operator and was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. We got to see hundreds of gators, many beautiful birds and even a couple cows! Overall this was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend!

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.

Nice air boat tour

The drive to the lake was at a speed where wildlife was hard to see when it was pointed out. Once on the air boat , the captain the was able to circle around to ensure we had ample time to see the animals and to take pictures.

We did the 1/2 day and it was a fun and interesting trip, from the bus ride to the boat. I was worried we would not see many alligators but we saw a lot. Everyone thought it exceeded their expectations.
