We got airboat tour tickets here but the actual airboat place was up the street a bit. When we were reserving the tickets the employee was a little nasty with us. The store is nice and has really cool stuff.

Do not pay for the 60 min airboat ride, do the 30 min, and buggy ride, and the gator show is free. The 60 min airboat ride did not have too many alligators and our tour guide gave minimal details about the wildlife and area. The 30 min airboat ride and buggy ride was a little better. Our airboat captain... More

Captain Jack's was just brilliant! I think our tour was about an hour long (you can pay extra for a longer tour i think), I cant remember what our captain was called but he was excellent! He knew what he was talking about! We saw 3 alligators which was amazing, we were so close to them, our captain fed the... More

If you have a chance to go on airboat and swamp buggy rides by all means do it! It's the best way to experience the Everglades. We did the combo which included the small fast airboat through the mangrove tunnels. Wild fun! We had multiple encounters with alligators, within a couple feet of boat. Then we did the large airboat... More

We have done 4 airboat tours so far, and this was definately the best one yet. I will never do another airboat tour without Captain Ken. It was not only the alligators and the manatee that made it special, we got great info about the environment and the airboat, and I got to take a picture in the drivers seat.... More

I had visited Captain Jacks a couple of years ago and had a brilliant time with captain ken so I wanted to share my experience with my husband. We waited a little longer to make sure we went with Ken and we weren't disappointed. He's very experienced, knows all the areas for wildlife. We saw raccoons and alligators and Captain... More

We have done airboat rides previously but yesterday took the grandkids on Captain Jack's Mangrove tour. Our captain, Kenny Smallwood really made the trip great for us! The grandkids had never been on an airboat before and one grandson was very nervous when the boat ride started and frightened by the aligator we saw, but Captain Kenny put him at... More

Exciting ride through the Mangrove on the airboat. Captain Gary was knowledgeable and entertaining. He was able to get a pelican to land right on the front of our boat several times. Highly recommend taking a tour.
