Captain Ken knows his way around the Everglades (ask for him!) Bring your family, camera, and sunscreen for an hour of fun. We saw gators and raccoons while Ken told us all about them and the mangrove forest. You can't see this anywhere else in the USA. You might be able to get something similar on the Amazon River, but... More

We visited Captain Jack's over Labor Day weekend and had a great time. I have been on a few other airboat rides in the past and this was by far the best. Captain Dwain was an excellent driver and took us through beautiful mangroves. He's also a true naturalist and didn't hesitate to get up close with the raccoons and... More

Glad we chose Captain Jack's. A once in a lifetime experience. Our Captain Garry was great. We got to see live alligators and racoons. The whole experience was breathtaking and amazing. Would recommend to anyone. Great value for money. Lasts for one hour.

I travel quite a bit getting away from the crazy work weeks in Chicago. I thought I had done and seen just about everything and was I wrong! Went out for an air boat tour with captain Ken and the least I could do was throw a twenty dollar tip his way. I did both a large crowd (17) air... More

I did a lot of research online, reading reviews on which company to use for our airboat rides and I would highly recommend Captain Jack's. They were fantastic! An hour ride! Some of those companies only take you out for 30 min. We had Captain Kenny and he was so much fun. We saw several alligators, raccoons and drove thru... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on Captain Jacks airboat rides. This was our first rides, and we had two different rides, one in the Mango Trees Canal and one in the everglades. Captain Wesley took us through the Mango Canals and he was wonderful. He was witty, fun, a great driver, and knowledgeable about area and its... More

All the tours seem to be a similar price - we spent a hour on a tour with Captain Dwain from Captain Jack's airboat tours - great fun but be prepared to get a little wet. If you ask to go fast then fast it is - it's an exhilarating ride through the mangroves. We also saw many alligators and... More
