Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

Captain Hoss will take you for a waterflight experience with added value in his ability to keep your attention with some pranks (harmless) and ability to summon up the local water inhabitants (manitees). This was very fun for all, safe, but quite a thrill. Thanks...More
