“Fantastic time with Captain JR and Captain MO.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

From the time we arrived at Captain Jack's in Everglade City we had a wonderful experience. We went with the Combo package which was a great choice. JR was our Captain at the Grassland Tour and was a great guide. Living in Fort Myers, FL since 3 years i learned a lot about wildlife and history about this part of Florida. From the Wooten's Grassland Tour we went to meet our next Captain for the Mangrove Tour.
"Mo" was our next Captain and as does a super job in flying through the straights in the Mangrove jungle, and teaching us about the Wildlife in the Mangroves. We saw huge Gators coming up to our boat, and a large raccoon family playing between the roots of the mangroves. Captain Mo pointed out a huge osprey nest to us, which are pretty large eagles.
My daughter Anna came from Germany to visit us here in Florida and she thought this was absolutely amazing and when Captain MO put here in the captain seat for a pic that was pretty cool as well. Now she has a life long memory from a fantastic afternoon in Everglade City with Captain Jack's Airboat tours.
Thank you to the entire Jack's Airboat team for a wonderful experience and a fun time.
Anna, Beate and Josef

“Capt Ken was brilliant”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Wanted to do this for a long time and took the chance today whilst in south Florida with my wife. Have to say the tour was well organised, funny, entertaining, thrilling and informative. Took the combo 2 package and saw alligators, racoons and an array of wild birds. Some that sat on the boat! Cap't Ken was very professional and obviously an experienced captain.

I can highly recommend this company and tour.
