Our Florida vacation included this amazing visit to four parks and events within the Everglades and was a highlight of our truncated vacation in March 2020. The morning boat tour to see the dolphins was a bit of a slow start and we passed the mango islands and bird roosts too

Ben could not have been more enthusiastic and educated about the wildlife and fauna we experienced. He made the day because he obviously cares about the Everglades and the environment. We loved both the boat trips and the park, lunch was exceptional considering we were in the

Thank you for great review of your tour with Ben. He loves his role as a guide and it shows. I'm glad you were able to see an abundance of wildlife. I apologize for the behavior of the airboat captain. Flushing wildlife is never acceptable. I have spoken to the owner of the airboat marina who has assured me they will avoid doing that in the future. Thank you for helping us make a change for the better.

What a great day! Rhett was our guide and we literally don’t know how he can drive the van, spot tons of birds and gators plus give an interesting history of the area all while being a truly nice and fun guy! It was great. I’ve already recommended this tour and Rhett to others.
