“Wild Lyle’s” Private 90 Minute Tour, unlimited miles, is an adventure into the wild lands of the world-famous River of Grass – only for you and your personal guests.  This tour goes where NO OTHER tour goes, including the non-private Hawk 90 minute tour.

Our tours are different – we respect the natural world and the creatures that live here.  You will see natural animal behavior and unaltered habitats – without any gimmicks or high pressure sales of other attractions.  We focus on providing an enjoyable expedition for our guests to see the Everglades and the creatures that call it home.

Our trained and seasoned guides take you to see the amazing alligator holes, super-colonies of threatened wading birds, and hidden wildlife sanctuaries where you can photograph and observe the rarest and most interesting Everglades creatures and plant life.

You will see an environment that appears as it did long ago, a natural history captured in time.  This tour is unique.  This tour will immerse you in the wide open landscapes of the Everglades.  Our guides will give you a sense of the local natural history, and enthrall you and your guests with a story of the Everglades, the River of Grass, and Florida natural history.Anhinga

During this narrated tour, Wild Lyle or another well-experienced guide will delight you with
the stories of the land and water
. Everglades history is rich, long and captivating – from native peoples living with the land, to the wild creatures unlike anything on the rest of this continent, to the ensuing development and beating back of the waters to make way for the new century.  This history has a real impact on the marshes; you can see it in the canals, the sloughs of wide open waters, and the mix of grasses which show the good and bad of human history, and Earths changes, on the land.

We have been giving tours here since 1962.  We have designed our own state of the art airboats which has set the standard for the industry.  We have a wealth of knowledge, and experience – we have conducted rescues of crashed aircraft, assisted in ecosystem-saving research, and saved the lives of hapless explorers who found more trouble than they could overcome.Picture1Come meet our storytellers and experience a place that will give you and your family a story to tell for ages.

The 90 Minute Private Everglades Tour is the one-of-a-kind Everglades experience for travelers who expect the highest adventure, and Wild Lyle will give that to you, and only you, on this tour.
