My wife had been telling me for about the last year that she wanted to take a Airboat ride. Well Captain Jacks is the place to go. We were able to get up close with an alligator just an overall good time was had by all. Pay the money, take the ride.

5/20/15 We took our visiting grandchildren here for the 1 hour airboat ride. We have been before at other places. This was definitely the best. So much has to do with the driver! Ask for Wesley. He did an exceptional job. We found the alligators....we felt we were at the fair as far as the ride.....he even CALLED OUT the... More

Searching the web, there were so many airboat rides to choose from but this looked good and we liked the idea of the combo. The first ride was the hour long airboat ride through the mangroves. This was with Matt and perhaps the best of the three. We were early so there was just four of us on a 6... More

I would HIGHLY recommend visiting the Florida Everglades if ever you have the chance! My husband & I did the full Captain Jack's tour as a couple, but it would be great for families too! We felt like two big kids, we had so much fun! Captain Kenny was our airboat captain, he was a fantastic captain, & it was... More

We needed to use up time before checking in to accommodation, and decided to take the combo package. Motel sent us down to the main office to buy tickets, but we then had to reverse our tracks to go to the boat docks. Staff at ticket office were not particularly friendly. Our mangrove swamp tour was excellent - we definitely... More

This Airboat tour was the Second one we tried as we weren't as pleased with the first one we went on. The process was easy to get all set. The tour guide was so Fun and made our experience one to remember. We were able to see a Dolphin, Alligators, Raccoons and such Beautiful Landscape! We were SO glad we... More

Captain Art Usher was entertaining, knowledgeable and amazing at maneuvering the air boat through the Mangrove tree jungle. It was a thrill to see the Everglades and to have a captain who was legitimately interested in making sure it was a great experience for all of us.

Captain Art was a great airboat captain. Would definitely go again. The captain was especially good with a foreign family taking the time for them to understand. We were very comfortable with

You may see some wildlife on these tours but the big draw is the fast and incredibly maneuverable airboats that you get to tear through the mangroves in. Kenny was a little limited on our tour (because another family brought an infant on the boat) he did his best to provide as wild a ride as possible without freaking out... More
