“Do it when the sun shines”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We had a great trip and the Captain took well care of us. High quality airboat with speed capacity exceeding 60 knots.

During our tour it was raining, but we still saw s few Aligators. My firm reco is do the tour, its worth the money, BUT in sunshine when you can see a lot more aligators.

We had a large group of varying ages, and captain gilbert made our trip fabulous for all. We saw numerous aligators , birds and he described all their habitats and hydrology of the glades. Terrific experience!!

“Knowledgable and informative Captain makes this an enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Personalized attention by Captain Gilbert made this tour interesting. Even though the Federal portion of the Everglades was closed by the government shutdown, Captain Gilbert made the tour of the State portion interesting through his extensive knowledge of fauna, flora and the hydrology of the area. An excellent experience at a good value.

“A fun and educational trip for our family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Captain Wayne of West Palm Beach Airboat Rides took our six-member family group (which included two elementary-aged children) to the Everglades in mid-September. We had a great trip! He offers a two-hour and three-hour tour but encouraged our family to book the (cheaper) two-hour ride because at that time of year, we could see all the Everglade highlights in two hours.

Captain Wayne was knowledgeable about the area’s animals (less so about the plants) and talked about region’s history and current land use practices. Our group (two of whom are from Florida) learned a lot and greatly enjoyed the ride. I highly recommend Captain Wayne and West Palm Beach Airboat Rides.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

My brother and his wife and 2 children came to town with a list of FL experiences they wanted to do. An Everglades Airboat ride was on the list. He didn't want a generic ride, he wanted a personalized experience, so I reached out to Capt Wayne. He did not disappoint! He gave us a great trip complete with wildlife, info on vegetation, and a little bit of a trill ride. If you are looking for a memorable trip out of the ordinary, Capt Wayne can hook you up!
