Fantastic!

Thank you so much for a fantastic airboat ride. We saw gators and racoons, and just driving on the airboat was so much fun, too. And the kids loved holding the baby gators!

A "must do", but not super special or out of what was expected. Would like to have more speed and less cruising. Saw one gator and a racoon, noting you can't see in everywhere else in Everglades.

We had a great morning with our airboat tour, we saw three alligators and some racoons. Our tour guide was great and kept looking for alligators, we had the first tour in the morning so he didn't know where they were yet. Even though we really liked the tour, the sanctuary was a very sad place. I don't even know... More

This is the second time I have been to Captain Jacks and I'm not disappointed. However, we had checked the prices on the web site and rung to book our party of 5 in (as recommended).

I had so much fun, and our captain was Tony. The the captain was really funny and informative. I recomend getting the airboat tour. We all liked it. But, I did not like that they had a baby aligator in a box, so people who were waiting for their boat could hold it and look at it.

Drove down from Ft. Myers for a day in the Everglades. We took the combination tour with the two airboat rides, swamp buggy ride, and the animal sanctuary tour. Loved every minute of it! It was a bit unorganized from an administrative standpoint but nothing that messed up our day. Weather was crazy and we got stuck in a storm... More

We live here in Florida, but this airboat ride was far the best we done! Captain Soto was excellent and we would recommend this to everyone.
