Picked this tour group after reading other reviews on trip advisor. Made reservations, no problem with that. Discount coupon on their website & another from Facebook was nice too. Have always wanted to do this. Scenery was beautiful, going into these tunnels formed from the mangroves. Captain Thompson was friendly & knowledgable. Spoke slowly so that the Austrians on our...

This was an interesting and informative hour trip. Nearly the hour, a couple of minutes late in leaving and a touch early on return. Captain Bart was able to show us a couple of gators, different birds and some racoons. I was able to hear most of what he said but my wife, In spite of turning the volume up... More

The airboat ride was lots of fun. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Everglades and we got to see a few alligators up close.

We just took a one hour tour of a section of the mangrove of Everglades City with Capt Josh of Everglades City Airboat Tours. wow! What a fun hour of learning, thrills, smiles, and great memories for the whole family! We saw two alligators, a manatee, and a family of salt water raccoons (a first for us) along the way.... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to southwest Florida. Our guide was knowledgable about the Everglades and gave us a fun ride. We saw a couple of alligators and several tree raccoons up close and personal. Just a really thrilling ride. My 85 year-old mother loved it, as did the rest of us.

We ( family of 4) really enjoyed our visit to Everglades City and the Airboat Tour. We booked a 2.45pm slot earlier the same morning and had a pleasant drive down from Cape Coral. We were on Captain Josh's boat and he was informative, friendly and managed to spot 3 Alligators during the one hour boat trip. My kids really... More

Family of six with two teens and two younger kids, and we all had a great time. Our guide was entertaining and knowledgable. It was truly worth every dollar we paid and worth the drive out. We have no regrets and would recommend it if you have a chance.

There are many options in Everglade City for airboat rides, but I highly recommend this one to anyone who likes a quality experience. Captain Thompson was such a veteran on the water, and he ensured we saw everything possible during the one hour ride. He maneuvered the boat into the most amazing canals and made the ride exciting every step... More

We had such a thrilling experience riding in the airboat. Captain Thompson made the ride so much fun! Fast speeds, sharp turns all while having such control over the boat. He was very professional and informative. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone! ***Request Captain Thompson!*** There are also manatees in the swamp but i guess you're more likely... More
