Don't go anywhere else. We had Captain Thompson and what a privilege it was to be in his company. It's clear to see what he loves about his home town and he made us love it too. It was a thrilling and safe ride and great value for money. Thank you for the thrill of a lifetime.

We hadn't been on a fan boat tour in about 20 years. We had a visitor from Colorado so we had a perfect excuse to try this again. It was great to find this company which uses head sets so you can hear the driver explaining what you're seeing, and you can ask questions, too. We only saw one alligator,... More

If you want to see the Everglades front and centre, this is the best way! They only take a small group of 6 or so, and therefore everyone has a great seat. The headphones provided ear protection from the airboat engine but we also had communication with the captain. You get right into the wonderful winding water trails lined with... More

We had an excellent trip with Captain Thompson. He was very informative. He stopped several times to point out three alligators and a mama racoon. Gave us alot of history of the area. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Fun and knowledgable. Really enjoyed the trip. We had two way radios on so could talk to the Captain and each other. Only saw one alligator but it was a big one and right next to the boat. Also saw swamp raccoons including a mum feeding her two babies. The manatees are still hiding from me!

Is it just me? Just been on a tour ..... How disappointing.... One very small alligator plus the alleged sighting of a really large snake that no one other than the chap driving the boat saw?

Used these airboat tours recently and what a great trip. Captain Josh was fantastic, knowledgable about the Everglades and gave us a great ride. We saw Alligators and other wildlife and also the incredible mangroves. Would recommend a visit.
