Staying in Sanibel, we made the 1 & 1/2 drive down to Everglades City for the airboat tour. Capt Thompson was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the Everglades. During the tour he did a great job explaining what we were seeing on the two way headsets (these were great and allowed us to ask questions and talk with each... More

We visited the everglades as a family of four with two teen children in July 2014. We had booked for a trip at 10 am however a Florida thunderstorm had stopped the boats (better safe than sorry) and we decided that we would like to come back in the afternoon. Spoke to staff and he found us a slot at... More

The captain was so nice and friendly. He was an expert boater and knew the Everglades like the back of his hand. He brought us to see the alligators, "swamp monkeys" and wildlife natural to the area. Going fast on the boats was the best part. Everyone should go on an airboat ride for the experience !

WHo knows ! ANyways, took a tour from Miami Beach to Everglades and went on one of their airboat rides to try and spot alligators in the Florida wild. The ride was a fairly long one, but we only saw any as we left the fascilities, and then as we approached the dock coming in. On the ride itself, there... More

Our friends and we had a great ride through the Everglades with Captain Bobby. He was very knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the area, and we appreciated that this company does not interfere with any of the animals by feeding or bothering them. Nevertheless we encountered alligators, raccoons, fish, and birds. It was fun to take some speedy... More

Josh treated my husband and me to a personal tour since it was the 4th of July at 4pm and everyone else was home doing fireworks. He didn't leave anything out and even added some info about the area restaurants for later. It was fun for him to tell us through the headset system about the native wildlife and for... More

Thank you for the excellent review! All of our captain/guides are well versed in the Everglades, in fact most of them have ancestral roots that date back to the late 1800's right here in the Everglades! We love the fact that your going to be teaching your class about the Everglades!! Field Trip!!!???... (LOL) Thank you!!! More

We enjoyed our airboat tour through the mangroves. I was concerned that the airboat would be too loud for a 4 year old, but it was no problem with the headphones provided.

Thank you for the excellent review! And thank you for addressing how quiet our boats are. Many people have the same concerns you did about the noise level of the airboats; The oldest boat in our fleet is 2012 model year and our newest is a 2015 model year.... Just like vehicles with each passing year, new technology is available... More

Took my dad and his wife for his 70th birthday and had a great time! Saw gators and raccoons, but the highlight was racing down the mangrove alleys. What a rush!!

Thank you for the 5 star review!! Your family was a blast to have! What a great group of people! A lot of people think all the airboats in South Florida have two way headsets to communicate with the captain and others in their party....Probably because the ear muffs look similar, but our boats are the ONLY ones that you...
