Your Guide

Florida Native Gil Castillo has been airboating in Florida’s back country waterways for more than 35 years. As a teenager he purchased his first airboat and has been addicted to it ever since. An early childhood fascination of wildlife and nature soon grew into passionate career when just out of high school Gil landed a position with the Seminole Tribe of Florida as a tour guide. His job was to lead groups of people through reservation properties on outings designed to educate them about Seminole traditions, their way of life and how they survived off the land. He would take groups of visitors out on large airboats through reservation land in Big Cypress Swamp and teach them about Florida’s Big Cypress ecosystem and how it transitions to the Florida Everglades. As part of his tour, Gil performed educational exhibitions with many species of Florida’s wildlife such as Black Bears, otters and the endangered Florida Panther.
