“AirboatUSA is #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

My wife and I took the 1.5 hour private tour with AirboatUSA and it was everything we hoped it would be. First time in an airboat for us, and I can tell you it will end up being the highlight of our stay in Miami. These folks have it going on and really know what they are doing, from the time you schedule your tour, to directing you to the launch site, and then the tour itself. I don't know how many boat captains they have, but Captain Jim was the man! He took a short tour and made it exciting right down to the last minute! He pointed out native wildlife, native plant species, non-native plants, history of the area, issues being faced, current projects, and the list goes on. I can't say enough about Captain Jim. He is a true outdoorsman who loves what he is doing. So, if you and your family love the outdoors like we do, schedule a tour with AirboatUSA and see the Everglades. Maybe you will be lucky and find Captain Jim waiting for you at the boat ramp. Many thanks, Jim! We had a great time.

“Fun time has by all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

We took a private tour with Airboat USA and have nothing but positive things to say. Gary was great and offered us lots of information about the Everglades and places we could stop and see along the way. The captain and skipper that took us on our tour were great. They both had great knowledge of the area and gave us both a fun ride and a sight seeing tour. They went out of their way to make sure our tour was one to remember. I highly recommend this company, they were fantastic.

“Great experinece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Experience the everglades from other than your car. Want to see
the gators - then visit the national parks. This is a great way to experience the glades, not just a short visit. Friendly and knowledgeable captain who is willing to share stories and information. Took the 2 hour tour, but in the future will consider the 2.5 or 3 hour tour. Expensive, but worth the money. Limited sightings of gators and birds.

“Had a blast going again this year!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

Mr Matthews is a really nice person, cares about his customers. You start off in great boats that can navigate through swamp grass like they were iceskating. The staff makes sure the botttoms of the boats will not harm any native (or non native) animals. If you want to see something close or at a safe distance, just ask and they will do their absolute best to find what you want. If you really want the everglades, this is it!! The guides were very knowleagable and helpful.- Bethany
