This is our 2nd time in Naples and 2nd airboat company we used. We liked Capt Mitch's way more. No stupid spinning game, area was more diverse and our driver knew where to find the alligator and how to make it swim up to our boat. Great experience

This was a great experience. Captain Louis was extremely knowledgeable and very funny. We saw a large male alligator right off the dock. We also saw two females in the glades, one was protecting her best. Egrets, osprey, and herons were everywhere, and the mangroves are very cool to see. The captain was also a fantastic driver. Could not have... More

Captain Mark was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot. He went out of his way to make sure we saw an alligator. It was VERY hot outside, so they were hiding. Holding the alligator afterward was the icing on the cake. :)

We drove down from Sanibel Island for the 9am tour, we left at 6:45am, arrived at 8:15am. While we were waiting a 10 foot alligator swam by, it was very cool. Captain Mark was our tour guide, he was fantastic, just the right amount of humor and information. Highly recommend this company and don't forget to say"vote Trump" for a... More

Fun and educational. Well worth the money spent. Capt. Mark was awesome and enjoyed watching him call in the gators. Capt. Mark is quit the comedienne and made the tour pleasant even in the heat.

Captain Danny was very knowledgeable about the Everglades on our tour. He gave us history of the area and how the islands formed,along with interesting facts about the native species of animals and how the reptiles have grown in type and why. I would recommend this tour to other families.

Let me say .... you will get wet in the front and that is good when its 90 degrees. Its not an eco friendly tour. Airboats are loud.... and fast. Birds will fly away.... and gators are scarce. Our guy saw a med size alligator and ran the boat over it... funny?? not.
