We had the opportunity to ride in Captain Soto's airboat on January 18th 2017. He was a knowledgeable airboat captain, former member of the US Navy who demonstrated the professionalism that comes with both a military background and a local knowledge of the Everglades. He provided three generations of our family with an unforgettable experience, learning about local wildlife and... More

We brought our 11month old daughter with us and he was very careful. Very safe for kids of all ages. This was an amazing experience on the mangrove airboat tour. Travis was very knowledgeable and would often stop and give us some fun facts about our surroundings. 5 star Rating from us. Thanks Captain Travis!

We toured with Captian Jacob. It was a great time! He explained at the beginning about how it is dry season and we probably wouldn't see any gators. We enjoyed racing thru the groves. We saw some raccoons and some birds, and Jacob was extremely informative! We enjoyed having a private tour!

We took an airboat tour at Captain Jacks today. After the great reviews I must say I was a little disappointed. Our tour guide Ben did not explain very much about the Mangroves and wild life in the area. We did see the raccoons and the ride itself was fun when at full speed but I must say I expected... More

Great tour of mangroves. Boat drivers very knowledgable and great at driving and making it fun. Keep in mind, depending on the weather you may not see gators- but it is still worthwhile!

We had Travis as our captain and he was great! Explained about the "no alligators now". Made up for it by showing us as many others animals/birds (raccoons and crab traps) he spotted. Did some nice spins in the water too! Travis was only concerned that we had fun and offered anyone to drive the boat too! We did take... More

We also had Johnny as our Captain for the airboat ride. Like previous poster mentioned, this is the dry season and not likely that alligators would be spotted. The boatride itself was what I was most excited for anyways. He did not disappoint. Great time! Hang on to your hat!

We had a group of 9 and reserved 2 airboats - one for the adults and one for our kids (ages 15-21). Our tour guides were fabulous - very knowledgeable, courteous, funny and safe. Jake had the kids on his boat and they had a blast. The adults had Billy and we had just as much fun. Things to note... More
