I booked Captain Steve by phone in early March for a trip on April 1 for 5 of us, including my elderly parents. He was quick to take my credit card details and charge me $450. On April 1, after driving for over an hour to reach the place where the tour should start, we found noone there. I called... More

Our family went on the afternoon tour with Victor. Although it is very dry and fires nearby we saw deer and gator and had a very relaxing time. We will be back when the water returns!

We went on the sunset tour with Victor as our guide. Even though there was not much water due to the dry conditions, Victor was very informative on the area, pointing out the different trees, animals and tracks, and also included some Florida history. If Victor is available, we would recommend him.

I called the day before the event to double check the time and was told that they were closed due to fires in the area. I was so looking forward to seeing the Everglades. It wasn't Captain Steve's fault about the fire and he was very apologetic about having to cancel. I have read about others having issues getting refunds... More
