It was fantastic. On the trip to the everglades, our guide Ben was able to tell us a lot about Miami and the development of the city, as well as about the people here. There was also a lot to learn about the animals and the Everglades habitat. The boatsman Elvis knew exactly where to find which animal. We were able to admire baby alligators freshly hatched, as well as a large alligator lady. Fantastic communication between humans and animals. A unique experience.

Ryan, Jeremy and the Billy were amazing. 100% great time. This was beyond an amazing experience knowledge of what was going on below and bait to use was so helpful. Will be back again every trip we do to Florida. Great attitudes (even in the rain). Just an amazing experience all . around. Recomend 200%%

Great day, only big downside having to be 30mm before the start of the meeting is at 6:30 am and therefore get up super early (time to arrive etc… get up at 5:30 am). To finally see everyone arrive at 9 a.m., because the boat leaves at 10! Why not just ask us to come at 9am like everyone else?

Short enough trip to still enjoy other activities in the day, long enough to add some excitement for the younger ones! Fun and entertaining for the kiddos! The captain was also very fun and entertaining!!
