My partner and I did the private your with our two year-old son. Our captain was Chad, who was really friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the Everglades and the many plants and creatures which thrive there. His genuine love of the Everglades shone through in the enthusiastic way he shared his knowledge with us. We only did an hour's tour due to having our toddler with us but I would happily have spent much longer on the boat otherwise. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We booked a last minute tour with airboat in Everglades and they were very friendly and accommodating right from my enquiry phone call. We had capt Will for our private 1 hour tour and he was awesome! Very informative, and had lots of great energy. My two young sons 7 & 10 really enjoyed seeing all the wildlife and alligators up close (very close!) would highly recommend Capt Will and his airboat to anyone!

We booked this tour based on TripAdvisor and we were very glad we did. We had a 1.5 hour private tour on a partly cloudy/partly rainy Friday morning. Little Javie, our driver, called ahead to let us know he'd be a few minutes late due to traffic. During the drive from our hotel to the boat he was extremely courteous and full of information about the Everglades and our upcoming trip. Captain Ozzy was an extremely professional guide, full of good humor and clearly focused on making sure we enjoyed every aspect of our tour. He tried to stay ahead of an approaching raincloud and made sure we were covered when the rains finally came. He knows a tour like this is not about the quantity of wildlife but the ability to get close enough to observe what's out there. He really knows the territory. And Javie got us back to the hotel right on time. (Two side notes: (1) We're terrible about knowing whether and how much to tip after such tours, especially one like this that costs a few extra bucks, but this was one case where there wasn't a second thought. There was no embarrassing plug for tips, and we just knew it was worth the extra amount we provided for being so informative and pleasant. (2) Ladies, take a potty break before you leave the hotel or ask the driver for a pit stop just before you get there. Guys, there may be natural opportunities, but you'll get whiplash from making sure everything's clear!)
