We drove out from Ft Lauderdale after departing from a cruise but the long drive was worth it. I checked out a lot of airboat tours but most only lasted about 20-30 minutes or were in large airboats that were enclosed or held about 15 people. Capt Jacks tour lasts about an hour and their airboat is open and only... More

Make sure you request Captain JR for your airboat ride through the grasslands. He was the best very friendly and answered all of our questions.

We booked with Captain Jacks's last week. We had a great time. We had originally booked for late afternoon but they were calling for rain. We called and they were able to move us up. Our traveling friends had never been to Florida and were really excited. We saw gators, birds and lots of mangrove trees. Our captain was really... More

In our annual seasonal visit to SWFL we decided to visit the Everglades for an airboat tour with some visiting friends that had never been. I suggested that we just drive out there, as there are several tour operators, and figured they were all pretty much the same. We decided on Captain Jack’s Airboat Tours; they seemed to have the...

My husband and I took the mangrove tour ride. Jerry, our captain, was very informative and friendly. We didn't see much wildlife but the scenery was beautiful.

This tour was refreshing and exhilarating at the same time. I got to hold a baby croc while we waited for our captain to get the boat ready. Then there were the big and friendly pelicans that sat on the bow of the airboat at the start, I found pretty cool. The Everglades themselves are very lovely, especially the serene... More

We took this trip when the business was called captain Doug's Airboat Tours. When we had a friend visit we went back for a second time! Our captain was Captain Ken and he made the trip a lot of fun! He had a great personality and was a super captain! We saw an alligator UP REALLY CLOSE despite the fact... More
