What people are saying about The Everglades
We went in the hottest part of the day not expecting to see any thing. Along the tour we spotted Blue Herron, Sea Turtles, Schools of different fish, many other kinds of birds and just as our tour was about to end we even seen an alligator. After our tour there was a reptile show. It was very educational. After the show we went over to an alligator statue to get pictures. While we were taking turns getting pictures a real life alligator came up behind us. I thanked God for the fence the Air Boat company had put in. They also have a small restaurant and souvenir store to take advantage of. All the people working were very polite and courteous. I plan on going back one day with my children.
Excellent company, Gator Airboat rides. Get your Guide had no mention of the name Gator Airboat in the voucher, description, or anywhere. Thankfully the meeting point address was correct. With many airboat ride companies in that area, it would have been nice to know which one we purchased from. Our guide in the boat was excellent. Jay was his name. Knowledgeable of the Everglades and creatures that live there. My wife did point out that we saw a few gators and Jay did say that two different gators were named Lillie, but we still had a good time and would recommend Gator Airboat rides.
Our boat driver was great! Our shuttle drive was funny and informative. The ride was a bit disappointing because the AC was not working and it was uncomfortable. My favorite part was the guy at the end showing us the gator and crock and teaching us about them. We had a great experience overall and would definitely recommend it.
Enjoyed the experience overall. It started to rain 1/2 thru and all of the water accumulated as a small flood in the front lower area. Of course no one can control the weather but has anyone thought to add holes/vents to drain the water out of the sides of the bus? I was also curious if there is a route closer to see the beach?
The boat ride was a great way to get out on the water and see a bit more of the area and mangroves. My boys, ages 17 and 19, couldn't believe how much fun the had "shelling" and wondered why we had never done it before! Overall a fun time to have the family together and learn about the area.
