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

Amazing time at captain jacks. Swamp buggy tour was brilliant. A well informed driver made the tour through the landscape interesting and entertaining. 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

We had a wonderful day. I would like to say thank you to Captain Jacob and Captain Al for the exciting and fun airboat ride. Our group of 7 did four different excursions for one price. Which I felt it was great value for what we got. We saw numerous alligators and birds!

I probably could've done without this tour. The mangroves were pretty but literally the only wildlife we saw were raccoons. The raccoons jumped on the airboat! They were adorable . I guess The water is too salty for the alligators during this time of year so don't expect to see any. There are plenty of other places to see gators... More
