Captain Stephen was very informative and entertaining. The tour was an hour long and we saw what we wanted to see, a ride through the mangroves. We went on a 9A.M. tour and didn't see a lot of wildlife. You may want to ask what time is best for seeing wildlife when you book if that's what you really are... More

Fourth year we have done the airboat tour here - great experience, with Captain Josh, very informative yet also a lot of fun. The airboats are always well maintained and the facilities are great. What is more important though, Everglades City Airboats are always very 'Everglades conservation minded', we've been out with Captain Josh a few times and as he... More

We saw an alligator in the water and were quite close up so got some good photos. Matt turned the speed up at... More

I'd seen these crafts many times on TV, but being a person who doesn't enjoy water activities (it's a phobia thing), I was apprehensive about trying this. I was really glad I did though. The folks operating these are really professional and made the experience totally enjoyable. This was really exhilarating, very much like racing a car except across water.... More

My husband & I have wanted to fulfill another bucket wish. We went on our first Airboat ride. We were visiting family in Marco Island. We picked up my 2 sister-in-laws and drove to Everglades City Airboat Tours, in Florida, about 30 minutes away on a sunny day. The girls had done the sunbathing scene early in the day, which...

Fun noisy exhilarating boat ride. Didn't see much wildlife except raccoons which were over tame and fed by other boat vendors. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. The ride is worth it just for the experience of the mangrove swamps. Anything else is a bonus.

Great fun. Didn't get to see gators on the tour but saw some Raccoons who will come out of the Mangrove to say hello. Our Captain was very friendly and knowledgeable.

For the second year in a row, Everglades City Airboat Tours delivered an extraordinarily entertaining tour, with the Cap having very expansive knowledge of the area and having a generally great attitude. I thoroughly recommend this airboat tour to anyone in the area - I have done nearly a dozen of similar rides around Florida and this was by far... More

Definitely one attraction in Florida you must do. It's a one time life experience going on a fast airboat & seeing alligators. It was a great experience & the gator show was awesome. It was better than any other airboat I been on - this is the real deal.

My husband and I toured with Everglades City and Capt. Justin two years ago when visiting Florida. We are now recent residents looking for a special way to help Mom celebrate her 90th birthday. I made reservations on the trip down and we were scheduled on the 1:30 tour. We arrived just before noon, paid for our tickets and I... More
