Everglades adventure

The air boat right was the best part of the day. Rhett, our Gide was extremely knowledgeable! It started raining after the air boat so we drove through a nature reserve. We saw 2 Everglades mink! During our second boat tour the heavens opened up and it poured the rain!!! We had to cut that one short!! If only we could control the weather! We still had a fabulous day!!! Rhett did a fabulous job despite the bad weather!

Our guide Rhett was so knowledgeable and fun to be with for a whole day. He saw things, plants / animals we didn’t notice. Boat rides were a amazing. Captain Thristan got dolphins to follow behind our boat and perform twirls. In between activities were road in a 10 passenger van. I highly recommend this tour. Thanks for a great adventure.

This tour was an excellent tour. Our guide who was Rhett (Burtler as he called himself) was both humorous, entertaining and had an amazing way of presenting the information. Very well informed on everything we were seeing. Had lots of personal anecdotes to help you remember facts about animals and birds. One of the best tours I have ever been on. Saw more birds on the lake portion of this trip that we did in the rain forest. Much closer up. I have never been to the Everglades and southern Florida. would love to go back.
