Great little tour from Andy!

We dropped in here on the way to Miami from Florida and it is well worth the stop. Pretty reasonable at $36 each for an hour. Our tour guide was Andy and he was great, made an... read more

Reasonably priced at $36 each. We had an entertaining air boat ride through the mangrove runs of the everglades national park. Saw a local resident in the form of a 5ft alligator. Got up a bit of speed in certain areas with some 360o spins. Shame there are numerous other companies all doing the same on the same runs. Sort... More

We booked the combo package, consisting of 4 attractions: #1, mangrove airboat tour - Good trip along narrow lanes of mangrove, complete with canopy. The narrow water ways are somewhat artificial as you can see where they have cut the trees to make the channel. Saw a couple of alligators. #2, grasslands airboat tour - Plenty of bird life and...

We came down to visit some family and went out for a taste of the everglades. Our airboat captain was fantastic! He quickly assessed our group and saw the two thrill seekers and catered our tour to it. He was very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife in the area. We had an amazing time, and the sweet lady with... More

We were tourists for the day and drove from Ft Myers to Captain Jacks. It was well worth the trip and money. Captain Dan was an excellent guide and very skilled at handling the air boat thru the mangroves. Even though we didn't see any alligators, the scenery was beautiful. The Animal Sanctuary tour that was included with our ticket... More

We booked an airboat tour of the Everglades, grassland tour of the Everglades and a swamp buggy tour of the Everglades through Captain Jack's and all were great. Thanks for a great day!

My wife and I did a combo package that included the Mangrove Trees airboat tour, the Grasslands airboat tour and the animal sanctuary and alligator handler. The Mangrove Tree tour was great. Our boat captain, Andy, was excellent for what we were looking for. He took the time to explain the ecological area, with many different characteristics. He also went... More

Captain Jack's offers three different tours: a sawgrass tour, a mangrove tour, and a swamp buggy tour. I had already done a sawgrass airboat ride earlier in the day somewhere else, so I chose the mangrove tour. If you're looking to see some gators up close, this is not the best place to go. BUT.....if you're looking for a thrilling... More

Ok, so the ladies at the ticket kiosk aren't the most friendly but they got our tickets sorted and ride scheduled. Putting that to one side the experience from meeting our guide Tony until the end of our tour was excellent. 5/5. He was friendly and fun and really knew how to drive an airboat. He could see that we... More
