What a wonderful time! An hour ride on an airboat was exhilarating. Captain Art did a great job of explaining our surroundings and provided a close up look at some of the raccoons that live in the mangrove trees. A real Florida experience!

Captain Rob was an awesome guide for the Air Boat ride through the Mangrove! He stopped several times to talk about the surrounding waters, mangrove, animals, the boat! I was a bit nervous to go on this boat ride but, Rob really did a great job maneuvering around! He gave us time to ask any questions we had and he... More

Small airboats, lots of boating and just enough information. We enjoyed our trip though the mangroves and on the river, as first timers it was a great experience :-)

Took our family of six on this airboat ride on a very chilly February afternoon. Came to about $200 for us all. Our Captain, Johnny, was courteous, funny, and made my kids feel totally comfortable while at the same time showing them a great time and really fun one hour tour. He shared with us his extensive knowledge of the... More

A must do in Southwest Florida. Captain Jack's Airboat Tours is located in Everglades City….. a short drive from Naples. The tour is approximately one hour through the mangroves on an airboat. The Captain stops from time to time to explain the ecosystem. If your luckily you'll also see a few alligators along the way. Great time for adults and... More

Fabulous fun tour with Captain Dwaine. He is a lot of fun. Full of good cheer and good information. The ride is exhilarating. The mango groves are really stupendous. We didn't do the whole day tour, but kids would love the whole day. Go and enjoy.

I took a group of 130 British students there this past week and they absolutely were amazed on how fast and cool the air-boats were. The boats held 6 people maximum, giving them more speed and agility then the smaller boats. The weather was ideal and we saw plenty of gators there that day as well as other wildlife all... More

This was everything I had hoped for and more. They know where the gators are, and they get you very close...too close for some people. Bring a camera. You won't be disappointed. Then, after it's done, there is more to see and do.

Rob was our Captain, amazing tour of the Everglades! This is a must do for anyone wanting to tour the Everglades jungle! Highly recommend Rob who ensured we saw much more than anticipated...crocs, pelicans, raccoons and much more!

We only did the airboat tour, totally worth it!! We saw manatees and a few other critters. It was a chilly day, so we didn't get to see gators or birds. Captain Art was awesome!! He went above and beyond. Definitely something you should do!
