I picked this airboat company because of the rating on Tripadvisor and it was good. What you see pretty much depends on the environment, weather, etc. It was informative & interesting as we had never visited the Everglades before. Seemed like a good value based on prices of other things to do in Florida too. I sort of hoped to see more vegetation & beautiful plant life hidden here which I really didn't, but it may have been the time of year. Wildlife were definitely here including a couple crocs!

This company seems to have the highest quality talking about boatstandard, guide and departure point. We took a 1.5 hour tour with Josh and we don t regret it. Josh did a very informative guiding and showed us alligators, racoons and manatees. Fantastic.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first airboat ride, thanks to Captain Gary. We specifically picked ECAT because they are the only ones that use two-way headphones to block out the noise but at the same time easily hear the guide. You can never be sure what wildlife you will see, but we saw dolphins, manatees, raccoons, lots of birds and one @7' gator sunning himself. We would have loved to have seen more gators, but we were happy to see that one and the airboat ride itself was a lot of fun. I had never seen mangrove trees before so loved going through the different channels.

Boat and captain were good but essentially traveled through mangrove canals. Experience further south with Seminole Indians more exciting and across more water and grasslands. Did see aligator in water and friendly racoons. Visit City Grill for stone crab lunch!

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed yourselves. We don't travel through canals, They are small narrow creeks and open waterways.

Thanks again for the review.

We used this company for an airboat tour this past summer based on the high ratings of TripAdvisor. It was such a great trip that we returned today with our two 16-yr-old granddaughters from Canada. Once again, a phenomenal trip, this time with Captain Gary who went out of his way to ensure we could see as much wildlife as possible and to ensure we had a thrilling ride through the mangroves! The girls loved it as did the grandparents! Thanks Gary! We will return!
