Our Latest Testimonials

As a family from Iowa we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our tour! The kids learned so much about the plants and animals surrounding the area. Our guide Adam was amazing and very through with information and patient with our 8 year olds questions. As an adult I am terrified of any and everything that could possibly be in the Everglades and left with a huge smile on my face.


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.


I have always wanted to do a swamp buggy tour and was glad I stumbled on Captain Steve’s! Lasted almost the whole 4 hours. Sherold was a great guide. So wise and knowledgeable! The tree lined buggy trail was beautiful! The sunset was amazing! Only a few gators spotted along Turner River Road, but the recent rains and cold weather probably made the animals hide earlier. HIGHLY recommend and will definitely do it again!

It’s a good idea to bring a change of clothes in case of rain, especially during the summer months. This way, you’ll have something dry to wear traveling to your next destination. Also, be sure to wear shoes that can get wet or muddy in case you want to get off of the swamp buggy and do some exploring.
