This is the largest subtropical swamp in the USA, where plants and animals grow and live no where else in the world. See the elusive Panther, black bear, wading birds, deer, its a photo opportunity of a life time!

Capt. Daniel was amazing. Super friendly, informative, full of stories from a lifetime in the area and loving nature. No rush; we were able to stop as often as we wanted and even get out and explore a bit with a hearty dose of "there's nothing out here that wants to go out of its way hurt you" encouragement. Can't wait to come back for our next tour with Capt. Daniel!


SUPPORT LOCALS! Some of the tourist attractions in town aren’t locally owned and operated anymore. We almost did the airboat tour today, but ran into Capt Steve, last min and changed our plan to the swamp buggy. Glad we were able to have such a private first hand look at the Everglades. This is a must-see if you’re looking for a taste of what this area use to look like from someone born and raised. Capt Sherald kept the excursion so fun for us! Bring whatever drinks and snacks you want, water is provided in a shared cooler. Tour is approximately 3-4 hours, would recommend a long sleeve you can take on and off.

Captain Daniels was such an amazong guide. When we met him it was so fun from the beginning and we felt secure with him. 🙌 He told us so many information about the nature and wildlife and we had so good conversations. He brought us through the everglades with his Swamp Buggy with 5 others on the tour. At the beginning we saw a few alligators but later on unforgunately we could not see any more wildlife just the great nature. He told us so many things about airplants, quite a bit much, but it was fine. Every history was from his own life and he told us secret things that only locals know. He is making this job his whole life. And he is 70+!!! 😀😀😀 Would love to go with him again and i can recommend this tour to the fullest.❤️


Captain Daniel's took us out on a half day half night ride very informative and lots of fun. We got to see what the real everglades looked like.. lots of crawfish, frogs, turtles, snake, gators, fish and much more. So many beautiful cypress trees and air plants. The star at night were awesome also. We had alot of fun and will be going again soon. If you go ask to book with captain Daniel's.


Captain Daniels was an amazing source of education, lore, history of the area. It took us to places we have never seen off the beaten track and we have explored a lot in my lifetime in the Everglades. My teen son and I had a great time. The variety of ecosystems within the Everglades is like nowhere else. Our guide came from generations of family from the Everglades and knew it inside and out. Gave great safety tips for exploring the area and really encouraged us to come back and enjoy the Everglades and trails. He loved the area and that love shined through the whole tour. He allowed us to tailor the tour to what we wanted to see and do. We were the only ones on the tour for that time slot. Captain Daniels went above and beyond to make it enjoyable for both a teen boy and his mom.


Captain Daniel was awesome. He made the tour Extra special for my Wife and two sons. We all learned alot of cool things about the everglades. Book the trip it is absolutely worth it!!!


We had Adam as our driver and guide for our tour. What an adventure!!!! He was very knowledgeable about the area, wildlife, and vegetation. It was really a wonderful experience, one that we would do again, and will tell our friends to do!!!!


My husband and I were looking forward to this adventure and we were not disappointed! Captain Adam was a terrific guide. He pointed out alligators, birds, and trees. The scenery was beautiful and the roads were filled with water from the recent rainstorm. We enjoyed hearing about his family’s swamp adventures. Thanks for a great trip.


It’s such a wonderful ride I got lots of beautiful pictures that day great scenery and multiple ecosystems in one trail. I had a Great time and was a great trip. Definitely recommend spending the money and taking the family.


We had the greatest time going out with Captan Adam! He was great at answering the million questions the kids asked and was very informative in everything about the area. We started the tour of cold and cloudy and ended it with a beautiful sunset. We got to see several alligators, and birds. We had a few very quick sightings of snakes but they were too fast to see what type they were because of how fast they went. We will be back in a drier season we so we can get off on some of the walking trails soon!! Thank you!
