Managed to get on the next boat without reservation - would recommend making a booking before you go. Very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. Our captain was Justin was excellent in spotting wildlife. High speed ride through the narrow mangrove channels was exciting! Can recommend this company who seem to have newer boats than other companies.

Capt. Justin presented a very knowledgeable and informative tour. Capt. Justin also gave an exciting ride. I liked the fact that there were headsets to hear the narration from the Capt.

This was our 3rd trip with Everglades City and our first with Matt, who was great. Unfortunately due to cooler weather, there weren't a ton of animals out, but the ride through the Mangroves and the birds were pretty impressive.

Great time! Josh was super! The water was to cold for gators but we saw raccoons and birds. The view was beautiful. Would recommend this tour . Plus they have ear protection, so you don't have to worry about your hearing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our airboat ride. Captain Josh was extremely knowledgeable, professional and courteous. He took us on a thrilling ride of a lifetime! We saw an alligator sunning itself; raccoons, monkeys, Ibis and Great Blue Heron. We specifically chose Everglades City Airboat Tours because of their commitment to their guests and their choice to not "commercialize" the tour. We... More

11:00 am departure for an hour airboat tour of the Everglades. Some technical sound problems (you wear audio head phones so that you can hear your captain speaking during the trip) were and initial annoyance, but after switching out our boat for another we enjoyed the Everglades at a speed that is in contrast to the slow motion activity of...

The boats are the cleanest and most up-to-date. They use state of the art communications. The Captain (Matt) was very knowledgeable and could handle the boat expertly. The best airboat company in Florida.

A thrill-filled ride through the mangroves around Everglades City. Our Captain, Steve, was hilarious and so much fun! He definitely kept the tour interesting, we all enjoyed it. We were able to see an alligator or two, raccoons living in the mangroves (who knew?), and hear about the area and it's history. The ride was an adventure, fairly slow at... More
