Lots of airboat tours to choose from when you get to this city. We had a friend recommend it to us - and weren't disappointed. Seemed to reasonable priced. Boats were in good shape and had comfortable seating for 6. The headset comms were also beneficial. Easy to talk to the knowledgeable guide and to others on the boat. Airboats are quite load so you have to wear ear protection anyway. So we got the added bonus of an informative tour as well.

The guide was an incredible driver. Were speeding down the narrow channels in the glades, just inches from roots. Would come up to what looked to be a dead end and then would all the sudden slide 90 degrees around the corner.

We did however see lots of other airboats while we were out. Did see some salt water raccoons, one gator and two manatees. Although we only saw one gator, after the tour we drove down the road to a picnic area and saw a much more gators.

Cool experience and would take other friends on this trip.

We had a great experience on the everglades.The day started off with a storm but cleared and we set off. Our guide was just so informative about the area and the water was calm and still. We saw several alligators so close to the airboat which was a thrill in itself. Would recommend this tour to everyone.

We booked a one hour trip at 9 am (first ride in the morning) - family with 2 kids (8 and 10) and came from Naples (40 min ride). It was a great trip, we saw some alligators, birds, racoons, and the nose of a baby manatee - very impressive. Gary told us very interesting facts about wildlife and the Everglades! It is a cool trip and we appreciated to see a small part of the everglades (not yet in the NP) - Yes, it is a tourist business, but we were aware of that and enjoyed it anyway.
