We booked the combo tour which included 2 airboat rides a swamp buggy ride and entry to the animal sanctuary. Our nephews, aged 9 and 7 absolutely loved the airboat rides! Boat captains were great! Saw alligators and raccoons while on the boat rides. Getting to hold the baby alligators at the animal sanctuary was a great end to the... More

We made reservations a day ahead for 1:45 pm, the clerk behind the counter asked who our Captain was, the blonde woman running the radios said there was a delay and we would just have to deal with it! Deal with it??? While it was only a 15 min delay there's a better way to talk to people! Delays happen... More

If you want to take a ride on an airboat and nothing more, do this. Don't get tempted to take the grass-airboat tour combo because it's almost the same thing as the regular tour. Almost no info or trivia about the mangroves or the Everglades during the tour. The animal shelter is depressing. Not worth the money I spent :-(

We had a CRAZY good time, adults and kids alike! Captain Robby kept us laughing as he showed us racoons and gators. He explained the mangroves such that the kids were interested and could understand. He mixed fun and excitement with learning in a way that made this activity one of our absolute trip favorites. It was well worth the... More

Today we went on an Airboat 1 hour trip with Captain Jack's. Captain Robby was our guide and he was really great !! The tour was fun, exciting and very informative. Captain Robby shared loads of 'local' knowledge that really made the tour fun and entertaining. Our 3 sons were delighted to spot the Aligators too. Well done Captain Robby... More

We were piloted through the mangroves by captain Robby who has excellent local knowledge, wildlife knowledge and skill in manoeuvring his airboat about through the channels. He took great care in explaining about the fauna and flora to our young sons and through his attention to detail about the alligators and mangrove raccoons we observed. Great value for money and...

Took my parents and kids who are 18 and 12. We had a blast. Captain Robby was great! He made sure we found the gators. We saw some cool racoons and a baby manatee as well. Capt. Robby was very knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions. The boat ride itself was a thrill and worth the admission... More

Definitely a must if visiting the Everglades. Captain Kenny Smallwood provided a fun filled tour with high speed twists and turns, some up close and personal time with alligators and a visit with an adorable raccoon family. I was totally impressed with how he handled the boat through the tight mangrove channels, especially at some of the speeds we were... More

My sister, hubby and I went here last week. Drove from Marco Island and it took us about 45 minutes. Bought tickets and was on the airboat in 5 minutes. Go to their website and they have coupons. We saved $10 for the three of us. Our guide Stuart was awesome! Gave us the ride of a lifetime! We saw... More
