Great day in Everglades City! Our first trip to the Everglades and our first airboat ride. Captain Steven was friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this attraction for visitors and residents alike. If you like fresh stone crab claws don't miss Grimm's right next door, bring a cooler or buy one there!

Great ride through the Mangroves for 1 hour with a guide. The 2 way headsets were useful and we could communicate with one another. The only negative was that the only wildlife we saw were racoons. From what I understand, if you want to see alligators, you need to go to the fresh water area.

Three of us went on this Airboat tour and had a great time. The guides use microphones to your headset that cuts down on the engine noise and also allows the guide to talk you through the tour. we had a fun time. Bought stone crabs next door on the way out at a good price. Delicious!

The "pilot type" hearing protection and intercom system so you can talk to each other while touring is wonderful. Owner was there watching things and paying attention. Boats are in great condition. I would book here, if you can get in. Only five boats.

Captain Josh was an excellent guide. The tour was very informative and enjoyable. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend you check out Everglade City Airboat Tours! Following the tour, Josh even recommended a place to go view more wildlife (alligators, specifically) and we saw LOTS of them! :) A great trip all around.

As a native Floridian as well as my family it takes a bit more to "light our fire". This trip set us all ablaze!!! It was wonderful. Capt'n Thompson was amazing and hearing his old florida stories was a delight. This company is wonderful! May they have good favor in their days!

We had a blast on this airboat ride!! Captain Bobby was very informative about everything we were seeing along the way. He was funny and congenial and made it personal for each of us. There were only 6 people on each boat and the seats were comfortable. The two-way headphones were great to have as they blocked out the noise... More

Bruce was a great Captain and tried to locate as much wildlife a as possible. It may have not been the best season for a lot of wildlife.
