My friends and I went on the Everglades Airboat Tour yesterday, May 15, 2015 and it was a lot of fun. This has been my third experience on an airboat in the many years I lived in Florida All three of the boat rides were very enjoyable and I would do it again! Being a Florida resident, I love the...

My wife and I did the hour long Everglades tour. What an experience. Our tour guide was Steven. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the way that this amazing ecosystem functions. He also demonstrated an excellent talent for manoeuvering the airboat through very narrow mangrove tunnels. We highly recommend this tour.

We called and made a reservation for the following day. We asked about seeing alligators and they told us on the phone that they haven't seen any lately. So no surprises there. Captain Steven was great. He was knowledgeable about the mangroves and the area, and saw a porpoise as we were leaving the dock. Had a lot of fun... More

We went on a tour in late April. My family of 5 had a wonderful time. Josh took us around with great skill. It was so smooth, and the headsets were great. Of course I want to think that I picked the right place, but there was something about this company that was different. The boats seemed better kept up... More

Josh our guide did a good job of providing information and his boat operation skills were excellent. The boats were well equipped with head sets allowing conversation and screening out motor noise. This is a fun trip but don't expect to see much wildlife due to all the noise from the boats. We did see one alligator but all the... More

It was our first airboat ride and so enjoyable we want to go again. Everglades City Airboat runs a very professional service. The grounds, restrooms, boats and guides are all spic and span. The boats seat 6 and reservations are recommended. Even though it was a bit early as soon as six were signed in off we went after a... More

Very professional staff, but expensive. The customer service was fantastic, and the guide knowledgeable, but it was not made clear which animals/birds would be represented on this tour. I was expecting alligators, but most of this tour was mangrove trees and other smaller wildlife like raccoons. I learned a lot about mangrove trees, but was disappointed that I didn't see... More

We reserved 4pm tour and arrived at 3pm. They started our tour on 3:20pm, which saves us 40 min waiting. The guide was nice, friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed out time here. I will highly recommend my friends here.

We phoned early in the morning to see if there were any openings. We were told that yes, there are lots of openings today. They never recommended that we make a reservation. So after packing up the kids, and driving from Marco Island, we arrived around 11:30, expecting to get on the 12:30 tour. Nope, all tours are full until... More
