Very impressed with this company as well as our extremely friendly and knowledgeable Captain, Justin. Boats are much more comfortable than the others, appear to be more well taken care of than other companies and have two way communication headsets instead of just ear covers. But, what blew me away was seeing another airboat company trying to bait a raccoon... More

Six of us were fortunate enough to have Josh as our tour guide. We didn't have reservations and were lucky to get an available opening. Our tour began with an easy motor around the surrounding harbor with an explanation of the local fishing industry. We then continued into some of the local bayous, cruising at an easy and comfortable speed,... More

How's can you not take the time to ride an airboat through the mangrove trees while near the Everglades? Captain Craig took us on a great ride, skillfully navigating through the tunnels carved through the foliage. He kept us informed of the history and ecology of the region through headphones that also filtered out most of the engine noise. As... More

Yes, yes, it is touristy, but we very much enjoyed our 1 hour air boat ride with Captain Matt. Reception is very efficient, checking in & taking payments. Our cost for 4 was $168. The airboats are very well appointed with two way radios that work very well. Captain Matt is a really nice young guy that has been captaining... More

What a great boat trip through the mangroves. Captain Justin was knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to answer any and all questions. And boy could he handle the boat!! I also really appreciate that this company - unlike some others - has a no feeding policy for the raccoons.

Michael, Thank you for visiting with our company and giving us the chance to take you on a airboat tour through the Mangrove Jungles in the Everglades. It's rewarding to our team to hear that you were satisfied with your tour. As you mentioned we do not participate in the feeding of wildlife. Not only is it against the law,... More

We decided to go with Airboats Everglades and loved the experience. They came to pick up us to the hotel, José, a great driver and talker. And then Maurice was our tour guide in the everglades and showed us with the maximum respect for the environment and the animals everything there was to see. Great company and greater people.

Nice Airboat Tours company, with nice infrastructure and boats. Captain Justin was great, very knowledgeable and fun to listen to! The tour took 1 hour and was great fun!! He also gave us some recommendations on where to go after the airboat tour to see some alligators.

We discussed which company to go with and all had many good recommendations. Talked to a couple who had been with Everglades City and another and had lots of good to say about Everglades City so took the chance. Got there and noticed that they were by far the busiest, a good sign. Captain Craig was friendly and informative. Great... More

We had a great Eco tour with Captain Justin. He was very knowledgable about the area and the Everglades. He was interesting and gave us good information about the surrounding area and southern FL. Very personable and a fun Captain! The ride was a combination of fast, medium and slow touring with several stops to point out wildlife. They are... More
