Nice airboat ride with cpt Marco, even saw a couple of gators. The water level was low, but still pretty fun. Nice, polite and informative captain. The shelter was ok, but no big fan of caged cats. The kids really liked the alligator picture session.

Captain Ken was great! Engaging and educational. Although June is clearly not the best month to see lots of gators (because of the heat), we did have a sighting and saw a fascinating stand off between a gator and a raccoon. Great trip! Will come back in the winter months for sure.

We took a one hour mangrove tour with Capt. Jack's. We had a discount since we had stayed at the motel. Capt. Ken was great. He shared a lot of history of the area and brought us close to several gators. I wish we'd had more time to also do the grassland tour, but we enjoyed every minute of our... More

Our stay at the Everglades City Motel included a double discount for an airboat tour with their partner, Captain Jack. And since an airboat ride has always been on our bucket list, we signed up for a tour at 9:30 am. Our captain was Johnny. My spouse and I enjoyed the fact that the boats are small, and seat only...

We did the airbout tour on the 21st of June and our captain was Javier.There where 6 of us and we truly had a blast! The airboat tour is definitely worth the money and a must do while you're in Florida! We saw a manatee, an alligator (super close!) and some racoons in the mangroves. The boat ride was so... More

We had such a great day exploring the Everglades with Captain Jacks! The guides were very informative and their humor certainly added to the fun of our family trip! Javier was able to take us through a beautiful mangrove ride to explore many alligators, raccoons, and Everglades wildlife. I would recommend the air boat tour to anyone!

Wonderful morning trip. We saw quite a bit of wildlife and learned a lot. Looking forward to doing it again sometime soon. Some of the packages provided in conjunction with Wooten's provide a ton of added value.

Our Captain was Wes and he was a fun and informative tour guide. He brought along his southern "charm" and was tellin' all sorts of crazy stories!! I have never experienced mangroves before and they are unique and fascinating. The airboat was a hoot!
