My family and I had a really memorable jaunt aboard Captain Stuart's air boat at Captain Jack's. So memorable that it actually happened 6 months ago and I kept wanting to write a review but never got around to it but it was so fun that I'm finally doing it! We loved zipping through the cool waterways and seeing all... More

This was a great and unique experience. Dwain was our captain. He was very professional but down to earth and very entertaining. Would recommend captain jacks to friends. Thanks.

We did enjoy a cool ride with Captain Andy. He obviously knows the good spots where one can see all the local animals. He's a very nice guy and has interesting and fun stories to tell.

Our group ended up on two boats. What a tour and show by these two captains! Better than any ride at Universal Studios! Captains Dwain and Stuart are the best in the business!

We started out at another air boat ride company. I had called them the day before and was told to come at 11:30. When we arrived, we were told we would have to wait until 1:30 because they got busy and had no boats available. Not willing to wait 2 hours in the sun, we went down the road to... More

This is my 3rd airboat tour (1 near Orlando, 1 in Lousiana) and the previous airboat tours had headphones and mics where you and the captain could talk... this was NOT the case, so I was disappointed with that part of it. I forget our captain's name (Ken?) but he was friendly and had good tales to tell when the... More

My husband and I came on a Tuesday morning and got booked on a boat that left an half an hour later. Our Captain was Moe and he was very knowledge about the area and the animals. We saw alligators, manatees, and some very friendly raccoons. It was very enjoyable and would do again if I get another chance.

We recently took a family trip to the Everglades. This being our second airboat tour we were extremely pleased with Captain Ken. He tailored the trip to our families interests and the kids loved it. If you have kids and want an exciting, memorable trip, request Captain Ken!

My partner and I drove down to Everglade City from Long Boat Key, The Airboat ride was great, lots of Alligators and other wildlife, the ride was fast and fun we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The only down side was the fact that we could not hear or communicate above the noise of the Airboat we noticed other Airboat tours... More

I didn't know what to expect when I watched captain Bobby and his crew mate steer in the airboat. But from the moment he called us the experience was incredible! I'm from Ireland but I got right up close & personal with a gator in his natural habitat and a little raccoon decided to say hello. How many Irish people... More
