Everglades City

We made an early start as it was a 3 hour drive to the 'City' - not quite what we expected, in fact we almost thought the whole place was closed when we got there.

There were several options for airboat rides but we went for one where all the 'Captains' were from local families and all the area that they covered was owned by the operating company, they also only ran over shallow water, just what the airboats were designed for. We think we made the right decision as it was informative and thrilling at the same time.

While we were waiting for the boat to come back from the previous run we wandered down to the dock and, in the water was this We watched it for a while and it didn't move, Chris really thought it was a plastic one just for the likes of us, until it moved! It was about 5ft in length and in about a foot of water.

Then came the ride with Captain Brian who proceeded to throw us round for a while then stopped to show us another 'gator, then off we went again
funny how an hour can seem like 5 minutes when you are having fun!
