This was the real version of the jungle boat ride at Disney. There was speed, action, and danger (not really). We did see raccoons, alligators and many species of bird. Really cool trip and recommended.

Their equipment is far superior to their competitors. Clean and comfortable. Head sets with mics allow communication with everyone on the boat. Limited to 5 guests at a time. Capt Bobby has a sense of humor, knowledgeable, friendly and he likes his job. The entire ground crew was friendly and helpful. Light snacks and drinks on site. I'd suggest that... More

My husband and I went for an airboat ride with this company last week. It was great! Our guide was very informative and knowledgable. We saw one large alligator, raccoons and plenty of birds. We enjoyed zipping through the waterways between the mangroves. It's a really fascinating area and worth the money.

We really enjoyed the narration from our guide who had grown up in the area. He was very knowledgeable. It was neat to zip through the waterways covered in mangroves. This company is respectful of the local laws to not feed fish or birds which not all are. It was a great way to spend an hour.

Our group of four adults expected much more given the cost. The ride itself was good, but we hoped to learn about the surroundings too. The headsets were practically a waste since our captain didn't provide any information unless questions were asked. He was a pleasant enough guy, but simply didn't communicate enough. No one in our group felt expectations... More

Hi Lorri, I want say that I'm sorry that your Captain didn't do his job completely. We try very hard to make sure that our captains teach you as much as possible about the Everglades and surrounding area. I thank you for your review and I want you to know as well as future reviews that this is not tolerated.... More

We took a trip today and it was amazing! Boat Captain was very skilled and well versed in the history and Eco system. Really enjoyed this trip, will go back when we have our grand kids with us.

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this tour but I left feeling a bit disappointed. Perhaps the stage was set for a negative experience when our captain (Wesley) snapped at the family behind us. He did apologize for being rude but as an observer, I was left feeling like it would be best not to ask questions. That... More

Took a tour with Everglades City on April 2nd. Called the day before and were only able to get a 4:00 time slot, so if timing is important call well in advance. The 4:00 worked well for us, tide was high and we were able to see wildlife including gators, raccoons, and birds. Captain Thompson was great with the kids,... More

Took our airboat tour with Everglades City today. Absolutely the best. Captain Thompson was very informative. Saw a wide variety of wildlife on one of the most enjoyable tours. If you are in SW Florida take an airboat tour. If you take an airboat tour go with Everglades City!!
