VIP TOURS

PERSONALLY LED SHARK, ALLIGATOR, AND EVERGLADES TOURS

Join me on an adventure into the water to swim with alligators or out on the open ocean for sharks! I lead small, personalized groups out on unique wildlife adventures where you can view and photograph some of Florida's most fascinating wildlife. Depending on what sort of adventure you are looking for, we can get in open water with sharks or hop in a pool full of alligators! These tours can be catered towards the professional photographer or the animal enthusiast with a GoPro, either way we will end up up close and personal with some incredible creatures! For alligators I will take you in the water with me and a group of gators, the largest of which is over 9ft and 250lbs! The star of the show is Casper, an extremely calm alligator I have worked with since 2007.  For shark diving I work with several licensed charters where we have the possibility of seeing tiger sharks, bull sharks, hammerheads, and more!

Come out with Florida's Wildest tours!

Everglades Wildlife Education Programs

Lectures, Seminars, and PPT Presentations

Florida is a hot zone for invasive species with more nonnative wildlife per square mile than anywhere else on the planet. With numerous academic publications in the subject of invasive species biology, allow me to share my field experience of python hunting, tegu tracking, lionfish collection and chameleon documentation. Invasive species have been declared as the leading cause of native species extinction after deforestation and understanding this complex issue has become a necessity for any biology student or environmentally oriented person. We will discuss the invasion pathways, environmental effects, and how to move forward with this unique issue.

Crocodilian Education Programs

Classes, Seminars, and PPT Presentations

As a professional alligator "wrestler" I will discuss the biology and physical abilities of these animals, their impressive mental capabilities, handling techniques, and training techniques. See photos that completely defy public ideas of how these animals "should" behave and learn how such work is possible in a safe and respectable manner. I will break down and explain wild behaviors and how they apply to captivity, along with techniques that promote the safety and well-being of both animal and trainer.  With over a decade of hands-on experience with alligators and experience with eleven other species of crocodilian, I would like to share the knowledge and respect these powerful animals have taught me over the years.
