“Perfect trip with Captain Johnny”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Cool boardwalk with small Alligator station. The Airboat tour with Captain Johnny was pure fun. Good boat steering, found places with Alligator, Snakes and Pigs.
Very professional and well organized. Check the Florida tourism magazine four rebate coupon !!!

Thank you from a german family.

“Great Ride, poor customer service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We purchased our tickets at the gas station in Everglades City for a specific time. When we arrived at the boarding dock/check in, we were told we didn't have a reservation since the girl at the gas station failed to confirm. The lady at the dock raised her voice at us for their failure to communicate. We accommodated the mis communication and boarded our boat over an hour later than our scheduled time. The driver was outstanding, a great communicator,and we had a great time once on the boat. My recommendation is to avoid buying your tickets anywhere but at the dock.

“Terrible trip”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The driver had no communication with us, but we observed other tour boats were very informative.. We saw nothing and were told nothing. The restrooms were also horrible. Total waste of money.

“Great ride with Captain Johnnie.”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Enjoyed the airboat ride with Captain Johnnie. Very knowledgeable and fun-loving. Saw gators and learned a lot about the eco-system in the Everglades. Well worth the money. Be sure to go to the boardwalk and visit the baby alligators.
