"I've been a boater almost my entire life and fully understand each and every aspect of making sure a day out on the water is enjoyable.  SW Florida Boat Tours certainly goes out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable and memorable time.   Their biggest asset is people skills and a genuine interest in sharing the beauty of nature, wildlife and the environment.  More than a boat tour....it's a great way to appreciate one of the last natural frontiers that remains in our life time."
