Our guide 'Andy' was very hospitable and provided us and the boys with interesting facts about the everglades airboat ride.

As grandparents we took our son, his wife and two boys ages 7 and 9. Wes was our captain. He was very friendly and informative. We took the one hour mangrove tour. It was like speeding through a tunnel of mangroves with some open lagoons where Wes took the opportunity to do some 180's and some side slides. The boys... More

The girls that work in the office are so awesome. They gave us a discount for our loyalty as we wore our Captain Jack shirt and got a double discount on a party of five. The guys here are worth just as much as the airboat ride. They are funny and laid back and fun drivers. Waiting to go back... More

Ken has a lot of experience with commercial fishing and the Everglades area. He has a pelican he calls to sit on the hull of the boat. He also has a way to get an alligator to come closer to the boat. We saw 3 alligators and one came up and circled in front of the boat. He was personable... More

The ride through the mangroves is really thrilling, in addition our guide Javier was able to spot a 6 foot gator.

Visited on a wet day but so glad we went as everyone had a brilliant time. A party of ten we took out two boats. We had Wesley as our Captain - superb all round. A great guide who found us gators and racoons and gave us down high speed airboat action too! Would definitely recommend that you visit Captain... More

We did the combo which included 2 air boat trips. The first through the mangroves was exhilerating and well worth it. Hold on tight! We saw one alligator, just, but that was lucky as they have all cleared off as the water is too salty at the moment. When it rains heavily they should be back. Even without seeing lots... More

We had Captain Tony for our airboat tour. Every staff member from start to end of our trip was kind and accomodating. Tony went pretty fast in the open waters to liven things up a bit for the kids. We saw 4 alligators total during the airboat ride as well as neat birds and got up close and personal with... More
