We did this with friends who had been before. We had Captain Patrick, whose family has been in the airboat business for several generations. It was great fun, loud and fast, but the head protectors worked well. We learnt a great deal, and despite not seeing any gators owing to the dry conditions, we enjoyed seeing the raccoons. Obviously the... More

We had high expectations when we booked this tour. However i was very disappointed with the 60 minute boat ride. It does not take you into the real mangrove forest but skims through the outskirts. Hardly saw any wild life worth mentioning excepts few pelicans and eagles and of course Lemurs. Did not see any crocodiles in the swamp. The... More

This is the most disappointing excursion we did during our time in Florida. We saw very little wildlife and it isn't an "Everglades" tour at all. In fact, you don't go into the Everglades.The trip to the island is not worth the time and not interesting at all. Our guide said very little and was not engaging. I have no... More

We took the 90 minute tour with Captain Craig. His knowledge and enthusiasm set a new standard for tour guides. He far exceeded our expectations of the three-E's (educational, entertaining, and exciting). We cannot recommend him highly enough!

Had a great time. Captain Craig made the one hour tour entertaining, informative, educational and thrilling! He shared great local and family anecdotes that made the tour very enjoyable. His mention of other area sights and suggested locations for further wildlife viewing helped make the day even more memorable. Already planning a return trip!

Torch'so Everglades airboat tour was a wonderful experience for my family of 5 (3 kids ages 8,6 and 3). Noise canceling headphones were provided because the fan on the boat gets quite loud. My kids loved when we picked up speed and glided side to side. Steering through the narrow canals takes experience. Our captain was new to the job... More

Came down from Englewood Florida for a day trip for my sister and I. We had Captain Craig Daniels Jr. and he was a blast! We took the hour long trip and boy time really flew. I highly recommend giving this adventure a try. Several people there had been back multiple years. Now there boats may not be the prettiest... More

We booked a 90 min. ride for 12/23/2014 and it was incredible. Our guide was native to the Everglades and was a wealth of information about local wildlife and history. We saw manatees, flamingos, wood storks, white ibis, osprey, raccoons, catfish, crabs, and many other species. The leg of the trip through the mangrove swamps was a fast-paced thrilling ride...

Check out Captain Craig Daniels, Jr., if you have grandchildren. He did a great job making our ride with our family memorable. The grandkids loved it. The history, wildlife, and ride where great. Ask for him on your next trip.
