One really should drive all the way to Flamingo - the end of the road- in Everglades National Park. Whilst the destination is interesting enough, it is the drive through the park that provides the best Everglades experience. Since this review is about the Boat...More

Not worth the price. Most boring boat tour and the captain and assistant seldom said a word. The assistant texted most of the trip. Would not recommend.

We took a 3pm backcountry tour and it was alright. I wish we would have waited for the bay tour as it had to be better. Dave was our captain and he was very knowledgeable. His first mate/spotter was pleasant. The boat was clean and...More

Booked this afternoon boat ride while at the rather run-down & mosquito ridden Flamingo Bay visitor centre concession.. The boat was full of passengers, and we had a guide/driver and a spotter for wildlife. Much of the tour was interesting, and it certainly showed the...More

Did tour that goes to whitewater bay. Good and informative guide. Saw baby crocs, manatee, birds, alligators. Lots of mangrove. Fun at speed. Worthwhile, but not high octane.
