We were told by several of the locals that this is the place to go for the airboat rides. We passed several places that had very "fancy" airboats, but this place is very unique. We did not have reservations, but we were able to book our trip and we had about an hour and a half to get something to... More

We picked this airboat ride randomly from Must Do✔️. We had no idea what to expect. The lady who checked us in was very nice. Our captain was running a little behind - but man was it ever worth the wait!! We had a blast! If we ever return to this area we will definitely look up Totch's and wait... More

Our concierge booked out airboat tour with Totch's. Not sure I would have known the difference with all the outfitters in Everglades City, but I'm sure glad we ended up here. Captain Neyman was phenomenal for us and our 9 and 7 year olds. They were thrilled by the speed of the boat, the alligator spotting, the surprise feeding of... More

Great fun ride, with a bit of wildlife viewing and lots of Totch family history and local lore by our friendly guide Craig. We toured the 10,000 islands and mangrove swamps. An airboat ride was one of the "must do" items on our vacation list and this one delivered. Along the way, Craig shared his religious views, political inclinations and... More

Totch's was book for us by our hotel and turning up to see the slightly antiquated airboats when compared to their local competitors was slightly apprehensive. NO NEED THIS WAS FABULOUS What an experience! These guys know what they are doing they get you close to the crocs, the racoons and the crabs like no other tour we saw does!... More

I've always wanted to do this, and on a vacation to Marco Island my wife and I decided to take a ride to Everglade City. Totch's looked like the kind of family run, local operation we were interested in trying. We were not disappointed. Our captain knew the area and history. We alternated between a real life WDW Jungle Cruise... More

We went for an hour long trip as a family through the mangroves and were lucky enough to get Captain Craig as our guide. He taught us so much about the history of his family and the ecosystem and we enjoyed the knowledge he gave us. He was witty and funny and was sure to bring every passenger into the... More

We had a fabulous ride today with Captain Sheldon. He is very knowledgeable of the Everglades and its flora and fauna. We saw several alligators, birds, etc. Well worth the price. This is my third airboat tour of the Everglades and I'll do it again. Thank you, Captain Sheldon, for a great day! Amy and Alison

Fantastic experience! Fun for our whole family! I have a 6 and 8 year old and they had an amazing time! Captain Timothy was so informative and business inside was friendly! Also a clean bathroom to use while waiting! Holding the baby alligator at the end was a hit with the family! You can tell this was a nice family... More
