We booked the trip via internet but we needed to collect the ticket in bayside marketplace. We get into the bus and met Jose our driver. He was precise, clear and with sense of humour :) at Everglades we were taken on airboat and seen 3 alligators! We were luck because not always you can see them. For this amount of money totally worth it. We were drove back to Miami Beach. Everything was well planned.

I was in Miami and I wanted to do something different! this was a great experience, especially because they give you the option to drop you off at Miami beach and ride back with them later that day. I would've wished they would explain a little better on the app how the whole plan is, it seemed a little confusing but overall it was great, I highly recommend it.

Great experience. Guide was knowledgeable. Took his time to show everyone on boat alligators and wildlife. Covered boats. Nice for unexpected weather. Bus ride there and back was relaxing and convenient. Also had a lot of information.

We was so fun! And it comes with complementary drinks ! We could ride jetskis for so long, the captain was cool, we got a little drunk lol.

Amazing from start to finish fun thrilling everything
