This is my second time with FTL Airboat Adventures. Captain Jason was our expert and he didn't disappoint! Saw large (8 ft +), tons of nest with protective momma's and an in depth education about the Everglades. A must do for visitors and the locals!

Fun and educational trip with knowledgeable guide, Captain Shawn Meiman. Worth the drive and the money. Had perfect weather and hope to return again to enjoy with more family and friends!

After being on other tours, can say that Capt Meiman,by far, provides the best airboat experience. The boat is comfortable and clean and the places he took us to were more beautiful than anticipated.....if you are looking for a top notch operation, look no further...
