an hour away from Orlando, but what a great change from the parks. We did the last tour of the day (was recommended to us over email as the highest chances to see animals because of the heat). Captain Ed was fantastic, we saw tons of nature, great wind when the boat goes fast, held a small gator in our... More

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of going on an airboat adventure (not just a ride) with Capt. Will. We had never done anything of the like (being from Ohio), but it is definitely something we see ourselves doing again...and again when we come back to Florida. Capt. Will is not only an expert boatsman, but is witty, knowledgeable... More

My family went airboating for the first time today. What an awesome experience. Cpt Mike was funny and very knowledgeable. We could not stop talking about it the rest of the day. Kudos to everyone there.

Second time there ... To me, with Everglade City Airboat Tours, this one is among the best airboat rides in the everglades at an affordable price. 2 reasons why: -The nature you'll see is fantastic. Cows crossing the river one by one, Ospreys, birds, gators, mangroves, etc... -As this is a fresh water place, you'll see gators with higher probabilities... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Though we are not located in the Everglades, as it is further south than us, we do try our best to show you the natural habitat of the St. Johns River and everything it offer. We hope to see you again! More

We scheduled this tour as part of our trip to Kennedy Space Center. So glad we took time to do this. Teens and adults had fun. Tour is an hour, and Captain Ed did a great job educating us in wildlife, flora and fauna of the Everglades. Thumbs up!

I've been here twice so far and it was a great experience each time and it was different each time. We got to see bald eagles and tons of gators. The tour guides were awesome and made it such a good experience. They even have a pig in the store! I would definitely go again. It's my one of my... More

We have visited this area for several years and driven past the airboat rides many times . All I can say why ? This was so much fun !! Very informative , saw lots of birds , few alligators and the free range cows. It was an odd sight to see them in the water with the alligators. Nice headsets... More

Ok, its a little bit kitschy and touristy, but what isn't in this part of the world. Most folks that are going to visit are tourists and not locals. That said, this is well worth a few hours and is something a little different from the normal stuff here. From the large pet pig, the exotic birds, and the alligator... More

Easy to reserve for a party of 7 with ages from a 1 year old to 74 year old! Great headsets for all riders to drown out the noise and to talk to one another. Knowledgeable boat captain. Beautiful scenery. We didn't see that many alligators due to the extreme heat, but we did see 1 HUGE alligator that was... More
