    Big Cypress National Preserve
    Stop: 4 hours
    Me and my family are 6th generation "Gladesmen" and we'd love to show you the Big Cypess National Preserve. This is the largest subtropical swamp in the USA, where plants and animals grow and live no where else in the world. See the elusive Panther, black bear, wading birds, deer, its a photo opportunity of a life time!

Shane was our tour guide on our swamp buggy adventure. He and his daughter Ashley far exceeded our expectations of what we would experience on this tour. His level of enthusiasm and his love for nature was evident throughout the trip. Our tour was advertised to last between 2-4 hours. Ours lasted nearly 5 hours! He's very knowledgeable about the plants and wildlife in the Everglades. Do yourself a favor and take this tour! Be sure to request Shane.

The tour through the Everglades with Capt. Adam was well worth the 4 hours we spent on the Swamp Buggy plus the 1.5 hour drive to and from the starting point. We saw gators- a bunch, deer and many species of birds. Adam gave us great insite into the history and the floral. Found out the Spanish, seeing expanses of glade grass named the area “Ever” glades. Tours were at 9 and 2. We recommend the 9AM tour that gave us time for lunch at Everglades City.

We went on the 9:00am buggy ride with Shane as our guide. It was the dry season so the water levels were lower and the bugs had not come out yet. Shane was phenomenal! Kind and respectful Shane was the greatest. He really seems to respect the land and showed us panther tracks and bear tracks. Seemed generally concerned when a couple of 4 wheeler's destroyed the panther tracks that he had just shown us. Along with the tracks we saw many alligators, turtles, birds and deer. He exited the buggy many times to make sure we saw certain points of interest. A mother alligator and her offspring were basking in the FL sun along side a small canal. He was very knowledgeable about the plants and wildlife in the area. When booking this tour make sure you ask for Shane, he really enjoys what he does.

Unlike some other swamp buggy tours down here, Captain Steve appears to have a pretty harsh cancellation policy. There is a $12.50 booking fee and $50 deposit that you will not get back if you have to cancel. With the uncertainty of COVID right now, most places are being extra accommodating with cancellations as trip plans can change unexpectedly. When I emailed to inquire about his cancellation policy, I received a fairly rude email telling me I shouldn't bother booking:

"I would suggest not booking then. Thankyou"

I'm sure Captain Steve gives good rides, but he is also on the more expensive end and definitely not the only one doing this so make sure to check out some of the other providers in the area. Big Cypress Swamp Tours and C & G Big Cypress Swamp Buggy Tours both seem to offer almost identical rides for less money and more flexible cancellation policies.

So let me get this straight you didnt even take my tour and you give me a 2 star review? You asked me what you should do about my cancellation policy it's to much,I told you if you thinknits to much dont book with me book with someone else,so for being honest I get a 2 star review. I'll never understand some people.

Ashley was an incredible tour guide. We had a smaller group of 4 adults and one child (6yr old girl) and the tour was amazing. There were several alligator sightings and birding opportunities. Their knowledge of the swamp and the history of the area added to the overall experience. Ashley spent a large amount of time with the 6 yr old taking her walking through the swamp and showing her all the different plans, fish and we even found several fossils. Ashley's warmth and charm with children really made it a special trip that we cant wait to come back at a different season and experience a different tour.

Booked a 4 hour swamp buggy tour with Captain Steve for 02/24/2021. We were slightly disappointed upon arriving to find that our guide was sick, and that we had someone leading our tour that was "a fill-in". At that point, I thought we just had to make the best of it. Was I ever in for a surprise !! The gentleman that was filling-in was none other than Dusty Crum from the TV show Guardians of the Glades, and one of his friends !! These two men gave us a tour that was informative on the history and biology of the Big Cypress Swamp. These guys were awesome !! They were funny and kept our attention the whole tour. Our thanks to Captain Steve for a well run and equipped operation, and to Dusty for being a world-class guide. I highly recommend this tour with Captain Steve's Swamp Buggy Tours !!!!

Very entertaining experience. We saw some "gaters" and many, many birds. The plants, trees and air ferns are so beautiful and the water is crystal clear. Our guide knew his birds, and shared many swamp tales; fun time!

We can’t say ENOUGH about Captain Steve and his Swampbuggy Adventures! Everything about our adventure went seamlessly. Booking our trip was easy, getting there was fun (watch for alligators in the river as you drive to the buggy location), and our trip was spectacular. Our guide provided us with a fabulous overview of cypress swamp ecology (the plants, animals and the geography) and made us thirsty for MORE! The trip into the swamp yielded something special around every turn. I just talked with Captain Steve and am already planning to go for another adventure next month!

Amazing ride with Captain Steve highly highly recommended! Both he and Dusty who we went with were super nice people! They answered questions asked and showed us all around the swamp. It was a little hot, but the buggy had a roof over and the wind made it just perfect. The nature is so beautiful and if you love nature you should definitely go on this tour.
