Thank you Captain Jack and your representative Captain Travis for a very enjoyable tour and airboat experience. You could tell Travis was an accomplished pilot and was entertaining and enjoyed what he was doing. I will bring my wife next time. Note: if you are coming from Naples you drive by other Airboat operations it is worth the drive of... More

We had a wonderful day. I would like to say thank you to Captain Jacob and Captain Al for the exciting and fun airboat ride. Our group of 7 did four different excursions for one price. Which I felt it was great value for what we got. We saw numerous alligators and birds!

I probably could've done without this tour. The mangroves were pretty but literally the only wildlife we saw were raccoons. The raccoons jumped on the airboat! They were adorable . I guess The water is too salty for the alligators during this time of year so don't expect to see any. There are plenty of other places to see gators... More

Helpful and informative on everything we asked. Captain Jacob was a great host. Took the time to provide interesting history. He made sure we were comfortable (and ready) as we went along.... More

Had an amazing time with the airboat tour. We had Captain Art and will be requesting him again should we go back. We had a blast whipping through the mangroves, never felt unsafe, and he made the experience fun. We got up close to a bunch of raccoons as well - which may have been the highlight of the tour....

First time in the Everglades and this airboat ride was the highlight. Jacob, our tour guide, was AWESOME! Very knowledgeable and made us all feel safe, while at the same time it was thrilling! Mangroves are beautiful!
