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

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

The issue about this tour was that it was just about driving around quickly. We did not get the full time which we had paid for and this included spending a large amount of time watching a fisherman trying to land a fish on a boat just after we started. I would of liked ot get a discussion on the... More

Speeding through the narrow Everglades channels and spotting alligators under the baking hot sun was the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the Everglades. Highly recommended if you have an hour to spare. We also made use of the entry into the Animal Sanctuary which is only a few miles away. The sanctuary hosts rescue animals .. lion, panther,... More

Grand kids were visiting before school from the DC area and we wanted to do something special. We were lucky enough to get Captain Tommy...I highly encourage you to request him when you go. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the habitat. The ride was thrilling and educational. We were able to see raccoons and alligators in their natural... More

Fantastic experience that is definitely worth it whether you're staying in Everglades City or just passing through. Our captain; Captain Tommy was fantastic. Funny, a great guide, and he was a fantastic driver! He showed us all the sites in the mangroves, including two alligators, and some very cute swamp racoons. Included in the price is also another airboat experience... More
