It was wonderful to experience the speed of the airboat. Since it was matingseason, we were lucky to see two alligators. Once thing: the soundsystem failed regularly, which was a pity, cause the things Mike (our guide) tried to tell us, were very interesting.
From the first moment when I talked to Al and he told me not to worry, he took care of everything!! Captain Jason was really fun and informative on the tour. We don’t live by water, so the Everglades were new and different for us! We saw a baby alligator and 2 big gators during the airboat portion. It was really great!
Very dissapointed in this airboat ride.
this was mythird airboat ride and I was looking forward to an exciting ride. Took 2 friends who had never been on one before. One hrr. of trying to understand the narration being given and one alligator. Not worth the money.
Overall 5.30 Hours for a poor tour. First the driver arrived 40’ later to the arranged time, then we had to pick up in 4 hotels.
The tour itself (1 Hour) was 45 minutes holding and waiting and only 15 of boat movement. The noice is to high and you don’t receive protection!
We loved this trip. Bus picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Seeing the Everglades and all the wildlife was awesome plus alligator show at end was very cool. We got to hold a small alligator and our package included two professional photos.
I'll start by saying our Driver was exceptional and very professional. However, once we arrived at the venue it was quickly clear that the value of the tour was far exceeded by the cost. The open-air boat in the advertisement was not used and instead individuals were piled into a covered boat with a very dirty front windshield that was difficult to see through. The airboat had poor quality acoustics that made it hard to hear the guide. There were numerous airboats out at the same time, which made it feel as though you were waiting in a commercial queue and took away from the natural beauty of the Everglades. Having previously traversed alligator alley and stopping to do the free visitor centre and small hikes, we had learned more on those FREE excursions and saw more wildlife including alligators, turtles, numerous birds than we did during this costly tour. The Alligator Show was well done, although very rushed and after paying 20 for our 3 children to have a picture taken with a baby alligator they were whisked out of the booth in less than 1 minute, when there was ample opportunity to provide them with an educational moment to examine the animal. I would NOT recommend this tour and show. Very disappointing.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! This is the second time we have wasted our money to see alligators in the wild. There is so much hype about how the everglades are overrun with these reptiles that we were expecting to see them around every bend. We loved our tour guide and he really tried, but disappointing on a grand scale. We have been to the swamps of Louisiana and had the same level of disappointment for even a higher price. I guess we will not invest in this type of tour again. It is really risky.
It was fun and my 12 year old son had a great time. The best part was the airboat ride and we were lucky and saw a few alligators. The alligator show was for my taste too adult oriented, lots of jokes kids might not get. The only thing I really was not happy with is the part after the show when you get a chance to look at some animals. There was only one animal to look at and it would have been great for the kids to look at some baby alligators. And if one has to pay 10 for a picture holding a little gator then give the kids at least a chance afterwards for a minute to look at the animal closer and maybe answer a few questions. That part felt so rushed and it felt it was just about making quick money. Don't forget these are for some kids and families once in a lifetime opportunities.
We had a free afternoon after a conference and before flying out, and this tour filled the gap very nicely. The pick up was on time and the driver was humorous and gave nice commentaries. The boat captain was the same, and he even made a pretty necklace out of a swamp plant for somebody on the boat who had a birthday.
