Here are a few things to keep in mind when you book with Captain Steve:

  • Captain Steve runs a small, personal business focusing on a quality, true feel of the Florida Everglades. There are no frills involved, but its well worth it.
  • The Florida Everglades has 2 seasons; wet (typically summer) and dry (typically winter) Your experience will vary greatly depending on the season. Be sure to talk to Captain Steve so you know what to expect.
  • This is an Eco-tour, NOT Disney World. If you are looking for a thrill ride, stick with the theme parks. If, however, you are looking to enjoy Florida at it’s most beautiful, this is the trip for you.
  • This is not a zoo, it’s nature… Weather, time of year, time of day, and countless other factors effect the movement of wildlife. I assure you, no one on the tour is more excited about you getting to see some of Florida’s most spectacular creatures than Captain Steve is. That said, it’s still nature, so luck plays a big factor in what you will see.

Experience the Everglades Same As Native Gladesman

This small, personal business offers quality tours that will give you a true taste of what the Florida Everglades are all about. With no frills involved, this is an eco-tour you won’t want to miss. Depending on the season you visit, your experience will vary greatly.

Captain Steve’s Swamp Buggy rides are offered year-round, (Park Closure June and July) and they are especially spectacular during the wet (typically summer) or dry (typically winter) seasons. And for those who love the nightlife, don’t don’t forget to ask about Captain Steve’s dark sky rides! With a dark sky full of stars and no ambient light, it’s an unforgettable experience.

Captain Daniel made our trip fun and educational. His experience, deep love for the land and sense of humor combined to make our adventure memorable. Watching my granddaughters wade in those clear flowing waters and ask questions about what they were most curious about was priceless. Thank you for providing my family with a day we will all long remember.


Great experience

We had the tour with Captain Daniel and it was great. The nature is beautyful and Daniel showed us the different landscapes. We could also see different animals and Daniel showed us on his handy even more. For example a phyton! We really enjoyed this tour, it was the best experience and say thanks to Daniel.

What a ride! Not only was Capt. Steve filled with information but fun! The beauty of those Everglades were outstanding. The love and respect that Capt. Steve has for those swamps made us fall in love with them too. We have never seen such wide open beauty before and plan on seeing it again and again with Capt. Steve! Elise & Larry Will

I have been a tour guide

I have been a tour guide in the Everglades for 14 years now. Three years ago, Steve took us by swampbuggy. Camping on a hardwood hammock. For 3 days we enjoyed the peaceful beautiful Everglades.(except for the bear that wondered through at 1am.) This past year, I have used this tour to entertain friends from out of town. And for me to see parts of the glades previously off limits. On the tours we have seen otters, deer, gators, snakes, birds, and the most beautiful trees and plants. For me its like being able to go walking on the moon. I highly recommend this tour for anyone that’s wants the best. Steve has taught and shone me things about the glades I have never read in a book.

Words can’t describe the sounds and the smells, the wind through the trees, the owl hooting as we ate our lunch, a clear sunny blue day with puffy white clouds. Mother Nature was showing us her best. It was heaven, so beautiful and peaceful. The day got better as we seen Alligators of all sizes basking in the sun along the rivers edge enjoying the winter sun as we were. Wow, what a trip! I can’t wait to go back again, my reservations are booked for next year and I will tell everyone I meet that Captain Steve gives the best tour of the Everglades. This is a MUST DO if you want to see the real Everglades the way the locals and natives do. I’m posting pictures of our wonderful day. Thank you Captain Steve you were great!! As a footnote I would like to add, while we were traveling Captain Steve stops to pick up some trash someone left behind. This showed us a great outdoorsman who cares about the preservation of this great Everglades he knows and loves. Not an average man, NOT an average tour!
