Our driver/guide, Rhett, was so informative and enthusiastic about the wildlife that we were thoroughly entertained all the way to and from the Everglades. The airboat ride was just perfect and even though it was a very cool and windy day!!! Our guide was quick to point out wildlife as we went along. Don’t miss this wonderful outing when you’re in south west Florida.

The drive to the lake was at a speed where wildlife was hard to see when it was pointed out. Once on the air boat , the captain the was able to circle around to ensure we had ample time to see the animals and to take pictures.

We did the 1/2 day and it was a fun and interesting trip, from the bus ride to the boat. I was worried we would not see many alligators but we saw a lot. Everyone thought it exceeded their expectations.

Rhett was our driver/tour guide, and is was so friendly and very knowledgeable about all the species we saw. He is obviously very passionate about what he does, and he made the experience memorable for our group. Also thanks to the wonderful boat driver who was able to take us around to see many birds and alligators.

Loved the Driver wild life expert nature specialist. We are new residents of Ft Myers and have found Lake Stafford to be the best Airboat/alligator experience in the area. We take /send all of our many guests there.
