We had a great time, our Capt. Tonya was awesome. Our food was great! Our Server Allison was too. I highly recommend a trip to the Everglades. We will def. return as no tour is the same.

We enjoyed a swamp boat ride. Petting zoo was fun even for teenagers. The birds whistled and politely said hello. Take bug spray.

Comfortable clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and shoes that you can be active in would be best. That's right, be sure the hats will not fly off. Don't forget your camera!
