We did the 1 hour mangrove tour. Saw plenty of alligators up close, some racoons and even a manatee with her baby. Loved the speed through the mangroves and turns out in the open. Great tour.

Came down fro DC for some R&R and a bit of adventure. CAPT. JOHNNIE delivered on the adventure!!!! He gave a great airboat ride through the mangroves, and he was totally knowledgeable about anything and everything we saw. Very few things actually are as good as I hope. This was actually better! Well done to CAPT. JOHNNIE and Jungle Erv.... More

The boardwalk is nice, The Alligator Man does a great presentation on the alligators & you get to take pictures with the baby alligator. We had a great time. We signed up for the one hour alligator tour & the one hour mangrove tour. This was my first airboat tour & was really looking forward to it. The alligator tour... More

Wonderful adventure - the airboat was a real treat - thru the Mangrove tunnels - up close and personal with alligators - loved the boardwalk! Ce Ce went above and beyond, calling me to make sure I was able to get on a tour. Highly recommend and there are a lot of choices!

Located on Collier Ave in Everglades City we called on spec travelling from Naples to Key Largo (because of possible bad weather) and immediately was offered a 1 hour airboat tour. The tour together with educated narration was brilliant gliding through the walking trees (mangroves) whilst enjoying the natural wonder that the everglades are. Do not miss this trip, you... More

This was fun...if you've never been on an airboat, do it? Took the one hour speed tour and saw about 10 alligators. You could tell the alligators were waiting for the marshmellows the tour guide gives out. I wanted to see one up close and I got to hold one and take a pic. Fun adventure.
