“Thrilling Airboat Ride!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Visiting SW Florida this is a fun day you must include during your stay. My husband and I took our daughter and her friend. We all had fun and we were glad we got to experience this part of Florida.

Suggestion when you go ask if Dwain Daniels is available for your ride. You will have a blast!

Had a great time at Captain Jack's. Captain Gary was excellent! The racoons, alligators and pelican made this a really worthwhile trip. The kids loved it!

Awesome adventure with Dwain on the airboat tour of the Everglades. We saw manatees and gators up closes. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny! I give this tour a 10+!

“Great adventure without the crowds ”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Word of mouth led us to Capt. Jacks for an airboat tour. Located in Everglades City we were excited for a new experience and not a tourist trap. Capt. Jacks did not disappoint, quite to the contrary, the experience was much better that anyone expected.

Starting with the Captains of our vessels, we had to take two boats (max of 4 should per airboat), whom were affable and friendly as well as prompt. After a very quick safety brief the engines cranked up and we were on our way. After a quick idle to a airboat designated mangrove inlet the the fun began. With the provided headphones we began our cruising at speed. With the noise, speed, wind and mangroves whipping by our heads we all were hooting and hollering. After 10_15 minutes of airboat gymnastics we settled down to meet a large Gator and racoon. We saw at least 12 gaits on our excursion. And finally on it idle back to the dock a pelican landed on our boat hoping for handouts. Perfect end to the trip.

After we got out of the airboat one of the captains got out a baby Gator for photo opps. Kids are thrilled.

Loved the whole experience.

Suggest the early boat rides to miss the crowds.
