We probably did 10+ of these Everglades rides in the past 5Y. This one has been a very interesting one since one of the first time we saw huge mangroves so close. Very often, we mostly see high grass, etc... The ride runs in canals with mangroves each side. Very interesting to see this wild nature at less than an... More

This was an awesome experience that can now be marked off our bucket list. Captain Bobby was a great guide, able to talk to anyone and is very knowledgeable of the area. Highly recommend this activity.

We went 6/29/15 and lucky to be the only 2 on the boat with Captain Thompson. The boats were the best selection we saw with padded seating and 2 way radios, which cut some noise so you able to hear. We were able to see 2 alligators and enjoyed the tour thru the mangrove canals. Highly recommended!!!

Everything you'd expect. We chose these people because they did a door to door personal service from our hotel. I booked everything over the phone, very efficient and accurate and safe. Bring a windbreaker not a heavy jacket. One hour tour was plenty of time.The staff all love to be working and eager to protect the wild life. I felt... More

This was a great airboat tour. There are so many in Everglades City but I think we picked the right one! Captain Bobby was great. We saw 2 gators! It was very helpful having the 2 way radio headsets. Boats were well kept. Restroom facilities at dock were clean. A good family time!

My son and I were looking for something fun to do. After deciding on an Everglades airboat tour we researched options on TripAdvisor and finally settled on Everglades City Airboat Tours. All the excellent reviews are true. Great place. Fun captain. Excellent time all round. I highly recommend this tour.
