My husband and I took the mangrove tour ride. Jerry, our captain, was very informative and friendly. We didn't see much wildlife but the scenery was beautiful.

This tour was refreshing and exhilarating at the same time. I got to hold a baby croc while we waited for our captain to get the boat ready. Then there were the big and friendly pelicans that sat on the bow of the airboat at the start, I found pretty cool. The Everglades themselves are very lovely, especially the serene... More

Terrific trip with Dwain for my visiting grandson and his girlfriend. They said it was a true thrill ride. Everyone was so friendly and went out of their way to make sure they had a good time. Thank you also to Alicia and Diane for some great customer service and dime laughs. Thank you everyone!

I have lived in Fort Myers for more than 8 years and I have never been on an airboat ride. I heard about Captain Jack's Airboat Tours and decided to take my family for a day trip to the Everglades. The drive to Everglades City was much shorter than I expected and Captain Jack/'s was easy to find and really... More

Really enjoyed our air boat tour with Dwayne. Saw huge alligator, racoons and rare siting of this Osprey eating a fish.

Capt. Stuart was awesome! Right out of the dock we had a mini Pelican show followed by a tour of the mangroves and some of its wild life including a 8+ ft gator! My wife and kids (myself included) were grinning ear to ear at the end.

Captain Dwain was the best! His driving skills were the bomb. Going fast through mangroves while doing twist and turns, very exciting!
