Tour was great....captain Bob was good source of info...Highly recommend, might suggest better hearing protectors, but minor annoyance...Was awesome!!
Captain Randy was terrific! The air boat ride was thrilling and the natural beauty was wonderful. We saw Dolphins, manatees, and lots of birds. A terrific excursion for anyone!
Had an absolute blast! Captain Bruce was a hoot! Very knowledgable and a stickler on safety but was a hoot and gave us a great tour. Well worth the money.
