My husband I decided to try an airboat ride in the Everglades on a recent trip to Naples. I had always thought these were a bit hoaky! We went on a weekday and was a bit surprised there was a 45 min wait. I recommend calling ahead if you are pressed for time. The ride takes about an hour. Our... More

Where was the wildlife. For an adrenaline trip this was good. Captain Stuart was a competent guide and gave us the most he could of a tourist experience. Go with the official guides if you want to see proper everglades??

Just average. No info given on the tour and the captain did not ask if we had questions. Not an overly friendly captain. Saw nothing but mangroves and a couple birds. Speeding thru the mangroves was fun but not much else to it. Boat was small. Only held 6. Fair price. .

My girlfriend and I were in the Miami area on vacation and decided to take the long drive out 41 to Captain Jacks' Airboat Tours. Traveling from NJ I researched prior to the trip with airboat company I will be going to use. On website alone Captain Jacks got my attention. We arrived at the ticket office at approximately 1200...

It was fun to hold and pet Little Snappy, the company's baby alligator mascot. This was our first time on an airboat. We saw a lot of the glades. I sat in the front and I wish we were told that we probably would get wet as my backpack was on the floor and got soaking. Ear protection is provided... More

Captain Mo provided a very poor trip. There was a very minimal safety reminder about keeping arms inside the boat, but no mention of emergency procedues or ear protection. No concerns about comfort_other companys provided rain protection, ear protection and microphones. The trip consisted of a ride up and down the same section of the everglades with no commentary. The... More

Capt Wesley rocked!! My kids loved the airboat tour and Capt Wesley made it so much fun for them. They loved holding the little alligator after as well. In addition, you get a free ticket for the animal sanctuary down the road (normally $8/piece). They got to hold an even bigger gator!!!! And see a panther!!! My husbands older kids... More

Our tour with Capt. Wesley was very fun as he sped through the mangroves and catered to our interests. He had a fun and laid-back personality along with an excellent understanding of the area. We would highly recommend this experience. We did visit the animal sanctuary down the road afterwords, and found it to be an interesting place. They do... More
