Exquisite ride through the Everglades! Beautiful vistas of sea grass, mangroves, narrow waterways and open water. The birds were everywhere, brilliant, elegant. Lots of alligators. The guide was informative and encouraged questions. I've been on other airboat tours. This was the best.

We enjoyed the scenic rides through the mangroves and waterways in the sawgrass. I'd never seen so many different species of birds together - beautiful to watch. Our guide, Captain Andrew, shared such interesting information throughout the ride. The experience exceeded our expectations.

Our family of 7 went out with Captain Andrew. Andrew was very knowledgeable and provided us with so much information on the ecosystem, birds, and alligators. We were concerned that we wouldn't see any due to the cloud cover but saw a good 1/2 dozen or so. Was over all a freak day. Do not confuse with Captain Jacks. Be... More

We took the Airboat Tour with Cliff at 11:00 am the 2nd week of December and had a ball! He was very knowledgeable, and was good at sharing his knowledge in a friendly, informative way without making us feel bad for asking question! We saw LOTS of gators and he was quick to explain the differences in the creatures, habitats... More

Before arriving at Captain Mitch, we already spotted lots of alligators and snakes on the road to the boat ride. Without reservation we could get started within half an hour, and we had a thrilling tour of 50 minutes. Lots of birds, and some (huge) alligators, and the speed of the airboat was great. Thanks captain Danny for the great... More

We had an excellent airboat experience with Cliff as guide - he knew exactly where to take us for the full experience. Got a great background story about the area and his involvement. I recommend this highly! Boats leave at high frequency minimizing wait time :-)
