We have done several of these rides with visitors and enjoyed this one best. Though they don't have headphones, Jerry stopped and gave us interesting updates and information. He was good and it was fun to zip along the narrow corridor between the mangroves, then stop for raccoon, manatees or information, then zip on. We did go over to the... More

This was the highlight of our trip. The staff was helpful and made an already exciting ride better. We saw Manatees and racoons. Great day for families.

Captain Jacks's airboat ride was fun. The hour long trip through the Mangroves was enough time to enjoy the scenery. I wouldn't spend my money on more than that. There was very little wildlife as I'm sure the constant flow of boats is quite annoying. We then went up the street to the "Animal Sanctuary" which was anything but a... More

We had Andy on our tour. He was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. We had a blast. Racing through the beautiful Cypress tree's and slowing down to see some wildlife. We even had a friend fly on for the ride. I definitely recommend stopping by for a ride.

I would strongly recommend this airboat tour. Exciting boat trip, especially when Captain Mo got up a bit of speed! Going through the mangroves was such fun. We were lucky and saw alligators, racoons and even had a pelican sitting on the front of the boat. A great time had by all.

We did the grasslands combo package and loved both airboat tours (wootens and captain jack's). I'm pregnant and found the boats safe and comfortable. I feel this is a great activity for all ages. We also loved the alligator show afterwards! Great day trip I recommend it! The tour guides were great.

I used tripadvisor to help me choose a good airboar tour and this one didn't disappoint. We were given a few dollars off, I think, for mentioning the site but in case you may want to print from Captain Jack's site. We bought our tickets in the main office and then went to their boarding area a mile down the... More

It was really fun with kids. We had the mangrove tour. No real wildlife as the boat is really noisy, no surprise on that. But good sensations with good speed. Aligator that you can hug at the gate, real fun for kids and adults ! Tickets allow reserve tour with crocodile, gators and lions ... Good for kids only
