I had so much fun on the Mangroves airboat tour! You start off slow going through the water and at first I thought "ugh this is going to be boring" but as soon as you get in the little channels you speed up and start whipping around and it's AWESOME. The guide will slow down and point out nature and... More

Bringing 5 high-school/college age kids to Florida and keeping them entertained (NO, WE DON'T DRINK!) is a challenge! But, without a doubt, our Airboat Rides at Captain Jack's were their FAVORITE EVENT of the 10 days!!! Yes, we visited and hung out at at least 5 beaches, but they split us up onto 2 airboats, so we could take photos... More

We were told early that the water was too salty for the gators so we settled for this and enjoyed the ride. After a slow start where the kids were getting impatient, the captain put some awesome stunts. The small boat with a 400 hp V8 did handle really well and I was really impressed with the captain's driving skills.... More

I read the reviews and picked my selection of airboat tours very carefully. I liked that you could take two different airboat rides through different areas of the Everglades and hold a baby alligator. Although there is a lot of other tour boats this one seemed like the best. You will not see any alligators on your tour because they... More

This activity is a lot of fun. Due to the location of the ride it is more of am adventure tour rather than a nature tour. Be prepared to get a bit wet as you fly through the mangrove trees. Captain James was informative when we stopped to investigate the mangrove trees and allowed us to sit in the captains... More

A friend and myself went on a tour with Captain Art. He was a wonderful tour guide as well as knowledgeable about the surroundings. We were informed about the wild life, saw plenty of birds and an alligator. Also a family of racoons. It was a wonderful trip and I recommend it to all. Ask for Capt. Art, he is... More

Captain Javier made the boat ride the greatest! He gets a 10 plus rating! We had a 4-year-old who had 'the' best time, he said. This Grandma always wanted to ride on an airboat and had the chance to on my birthday ~ what a b'day it was!! Captain Javier was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us a great adventure!! Will... More
