We had an amazing morning airboat ride on Capt John's Florida Airboat Excursions. The intimacy of a smaller boat and a guide that truly loves what he does makes it an ideal trip. Capt John is extreme knowledgable about the Florida fona and wildlife. He knows where and how to spot all kinds of interesting wildlife sights. We saw gators... More

Captain John was a great tour guide. Very knowledgable about all the wildlife on the tour: gators, birds, bugs, plants- you name it! He also told us about a very festive restaurant to visit after. Highly recommend, really great time!

John is a great guide. Knowledgeable, approachable and friendly. Tour was only an hour but did not feel rushed and was a good value. Headsets are a must for this experience. Saw lots of gators, baby gators and great birdlife up close, very close. Smaller boat than larger tours was a plus to get closer and more personal. We will... More

This is my 5th Florida airboat experience and by far the best. Capt John was professional and entertaining. Went two weeks ago near Laurderdale and our guide was excited that we saw an alligator. With Capt John averages 30+ It's also the first time I've seen an airboat go on 100% dry land up hill. Very cool. Headsets were provided... More

We had such a great time with Capt. John on this trip. His knowledge of the local wildlife was fantastic. There were dozens of alligators along the ride. John also took us to see baby alligators no more than a foot long. If you're looking for a fun hour-long adventure, I highly recommend Capt John and Florida Airboat Excursions.

This was one of the best experiences ever! my family who had never been to Florida before was so excited to ride on an airboat for the first time. Captain John was so funny and made it an unforgettable experience. We got amazing pictures of wildlife and saw a bunch of gators! They even have a GoPro harness on the... More

Just finished a wonderful tour with Captain John. Pretty hard to WOW a 9 year old and a 12 year old these days, but our grandkids were thrilled with this experience. We saw far more alligators than we could count, from tiny to 'oh my goodness'. Felt safe at all times. The birds were numerous and varied, lots of turtles... More

It was my first boat trip and i would always remember it! Captain John knows with perfection the environment and transmits his knowledges in a playful and very interesting way. Ideal in family, with friends or in couple. There are so many things to see! You won't be disappointed
