“great way to spend an hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had Thompson, a nice knowledgeable captain. The ride was nice not intimidating at all, can you tell I was a little nervous? Nothing to worry about except messy hair! Saw the alligator and raccoons in the trees. Brazen little things! Learned a lot and really enjoyed the ride itself especially when it picked up speed! Fun!

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We're glad to recommend this tour to anyone. The headsets make a big difference as our Capt. was able to describe what we were seeing and answer all our questions while we were traveling through the groves. The airboat ride was a lot of fun and we learned about the groves as we went. Our captain even stopped to take a family photo for us. Having read prior reviews we knew to expect a fun tour through the mangroves and we knew not to expect to see wildlife, which is out of the control of the operators. Capt. Gary demonstrated excellent local knowledge and we were fortunate to see an alligator, racoons, and a manatee. Even more impressive was how this company doesn't feed the animals. We did see another company feeding cheese snacks to an alligator, which is both bad for the alligator and illegal. Overall, this was a great experience.

“Fun airboat tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Our captain was very nice and informative. The tour was very fun and we saw a lot of wildlife. My favorite part was when we went really fast through the mangroves. I would definitely recommend coming here.

“An hour of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Capt Josh did an excellent job providing local knowledge of the animals, plants and local history of the Everglades. I would use this company again for future airboat rides.
