Captain Robby kept us informed and entertained during this 1/2 hour grasslands boat tour. Saw a few gators and learned about the changing ecology of the Everglades. Loads of fun!

Our Captain was Johnny. Slightly disappointed. He didn't put much effort at all into our ride. He ended up giving false or misleading info regarding the Mangroves.

Mangrove tour wasn't much of a tour. Too many airboats in too small an area. No wildlife except raccoons they feed. Skip this one.

Captain Jack's mangrove tour with Captain Soto was awesome! Getting to see the raccoons in the mangroves was neat. It was such a cool experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Had an hour long airboat trip with Art on one of Captain Jacks boats. Art was so engaging with the grandboys, age 8 & 5, which made it very special. It was just Grandpa, Grandma, Mom and the boys so we got all Art's attention.. Call ahead to get the best tide time. I know we will be going back... More

The gator show was gripping and spectacular, we enjoyed getting a picture with a gator too. The airboat ride was super exciting. A must for any visitor. This is my 3rd visit and each time I get...

Thank you Captain Jack and your representative Captain Travis for a very enjoyable tour and airboat experience. You could tell Travis was an accomplished pilot and was entertaining and enjoyed what he was doing. I will bring my wife next time. Note: if you are coming from Naples you drive by other Airboat operations it is worth the drive of... More
