Caught the captain on a bad day
Luxi_Z

We booked the tour based on the good reviews. Rather than a tour it was more like a boat ride. Captain Dan didn't say much to us most of the time. He arrived a bit late, barely said hi to us, and off we go. Zero introduction to the area or the tour. After maybe 10 mins we arrived at a small island, and he said "This is not usually part of the tour, but the captain needs to use the restroom", and off he went around to the other end of the island, leaving us there not sure what to do. The other reviews talked about how the captain was "fun", "knowledgeable", "explained a lot", we didn't get any of that. I'm sure he could be great, but maybe we just caught him on a bad day. We did find dolphins, but since we drove a lot and planned our day around this trip, we felt like we didn't quite get what we wanted - an informative tour. The whole time I was just waiting for him to say something to us, anything really. It only happened when we spoke to him / asked questions.

I am sorry that you were disappointed. Yes, a very bad day. This was not like Captain Dan at all. He fell ill during your tour and was "out-of-commission" for several days fevered and in bed. Please get a hold of me directly next time and I will find a way to make it up to you on the next tour.

Excellent tour of the 10,000 islands with Captain Don…beautiful scenery, lots of vegetation and birds and also some dolphins who came up along side the boat to visit. Don is very knowledgeable about the wildlife and native history of the area…highly recommend!

I enjoyed seeing dolphins and their playful antics as they followed our boat for a while. I also gained an appreciation for the size and biological diversity of the Everglades.

We didn't get to go and could not receive our refund of $272.00. We had a rental car and had difficulty getting the GPS system to program the address of the tour. I sent an a-mail to the contact tour guide for directions with no response. Time was getting close for the tour to start, so I called to cancel. I said to tour person We had an emergency because I was too embarrassed to tell him that we were having trouble with directions. He said usually they only give refunds with 2 days notice. Within the next 15 minutes , I was able to get directions via cell GPS. I called tour guide back and he said our seats were already booked with another party. Long story short, no tour for us and out almost 300 dollars.

Jim. We are disappointed that you did not get to experience our tours. They really are quite special. When you called with the last minute "emergency", your guide was enroute to the marina. As you were the only two guests on that tour, we quickly contacted your guide about the cancellation. You did call back about 20 minutes later after figuring out your GPS. You were informed that it was too late to reinstate the tour as your guide had already been released and was making plans with his family for the day. We genuinely want our guests to experience the Everglades and our tours. But we recognize that things do come up. Rather than cancel, we always try to re-schedule or issue a gift certificate for future tour. You were unable to re-schedule and as you did not book directly with us, we could not issue you a gift certificate. You were informed that you needed (still need?) to contact whomever that you booked though for a refund. They are the ones that have your funds. We do not have your money to issue a refund.

The size of group (5) was perfect. It truly is a mesmerizing world out there - the water fowl, the sea life, the trees. We learned so much! Don was a great guide! Make sure to wear protective clothing and hats. It was BLAZING hot and it was only May 10th.

Yes. That was a record temperature day. Glad that the tour was blazing hot too!

We made our reservations based on reviews and really lucked out! It was one of the most enjoyable parts of our visit to FL! Our guide, Charles, was terrific, funny and very informative. We saw Osprey, eagles and dolphins.....only a few feet away. We went on the 11:00 tour. Make sure you do sunscreen as there is no cover on boat. You will not be disappointed. It was a lovely experience! BTW.....office is very modest and tucked away in a small neighborhood.

We took my mother in law and my 4 year old. I was trying to find a fun activity to experience the Everglades that didn’t involve a lot of walking as mom in law has a bad knee. Captain Dan was fantastic and my son and the whole family enjoyed our Everglades boat tour.
