A great way to spend a day in the Everglades

Great experience with knowledgeable and friendly guide. Had a blast on the airboat especially but the whole thing was worth it. We spotted a lot of fauna and flora, and the pace of the tour was just right. Luckily the weather was also pretty good that day. I already want to return there in the future. I was thinking that an overnight option and a second day involving some hiking might be a killer addition.

This full day Everglades tour was relaxing, educational, and included a variety of activities. We saw many alligators, manatee, wildlife, turtles and birds. Our naturalist, Lance, was knowledgeable, pleasant, and went out of his way to give us the best experience possible. Lunch was delicious in a delightful outside setting. Highly recommend this tour!

Lance was an excellent tour guide teaching us about the everglades and its creatures, allowing us the opportunity to see dolphins, alligators, manatees and so much more. His passion for the job and the land was evident and he also provided great customer service even telling us where the good toilets were.

Super itinerary covering the vast expanse of our National treasure, the Everglades. We saw all wild animals that we expected to see: alligators, manatees, dolphins and many birds. Our guide, Lance, was a blast: very knowledgeable, funny, and accommodating - he took super care of us. LOVED ALL 9 HOURS; super value!

I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who likes to do different things, likes to learn, loves nature. Ben and Mike were excellent guides. They made a point to learn everyone’s name and to get us to interact and learn about each other and where we were from. We learned a lot about Florida and the Everglades (what a beautiful resource you have). They even convinced us to consider the Atlantic side when we retire.

This was a great experience led by knowledgeable and engaging local guides. We saw tons of interesting wildlife and scenery. Our boat guide even got several dolphins to surf our wake providing an awesome video. The van and boats were comfortable and the included lunch and snacks were great. A full day of fun and they even provided personal convenient pickup and drop off. You won’t be disappointed.

This I see a must-do for anyone who really wants to see the Everglades. We walked, sailed, air boated and lunched and never felt rushed. Staff were excellent guides who knew their stuff and took time out to make sure everyone was comfortable and getting the most out of their day. Having rejected most of the Everglades tours as gimmicky I found this and although more expensive than most it is top value for money. Saw alligators (not a show but wild), turtles (soft shell and cooters), gar, roseate spoonbill, herons (great blue, tricolour and green), white pelicans, snail kite, osprey, black and turkey vultures, great egrets, cormorants, anhinga and tons more plus manatees. Cannot recommend highly enough and would go again and again.

Highly recommended. Ben is very knowledgeable about the everglades and surrounding areas. Never rushed at any time and his relationship with the guides at each stop added to the experience as they took additional time to show us their secret spots. Would not hesitate to book again with Wild Lime. Thank You for the amazing day!!!
