Our first time on an airboat. It was neat. Very smooth over the water. Lot's of wildlife along the way. Driver stopped several times to talk and answer questions. He was very knowledgeable. A great way to see the Everglades. Worth the money. Wear sunscreen and bring insect repellent.

We found this on trip advisor. We have never written a review but we were so impressed that we really wanted to write a review. We have 9 year old twins and they wanted to do an airboat trip to see gators. We picked this one because of the great reviews and while a bit more pricey than other gator... More

First of all let me start by saying I really enjoyed the tour and Capt Victor was an excellent guide! He had a very good sense of humor and a keen eye for the wildlife. Apparently it is mating season for the alligators so we got to see many of them up close in one of the strips. This tour... More

These guys were very professional and great at keeping me in the loop. I went on a 1-hour Everglades Airboat Tour with them back in March of this year. The drive from downtown Miami was about 30 minutes, which was totally manageable. I will say, the 1-hour left me wanting more, but I guess that's sort of the point. I... More

We did a private airboat tour. Our guide captain Vic was awesome. He took us to several places in the Everglades including an island. It was a custom ride. Did not go where everyone else goes. Pretty cool to be within two feet of a six foot alligator.

We chose Airboat in Everglades based on reviews here and this was our first airboat ride, so we have nothing to compare it to. But I must say, we had a great ride with Capt. Willie. Hang on to your glasses (mine only stayed on because they were being held in place by my big noise-reducing headphones) and hat (take... More
