Had 3 young adult grandchildren visiting and thought this would be a great Florida experience for them. We sure were not disappointed! Our captain,Steven, was great and made the trip exciting. We saw one alligator and several racoons. Highly recommend this!

Overall, this was a fun trip. Really good value to sit in a smaller (6 seater + captain) boat, rather than the huge monstrosities further into the park. This is not really the experience to spot wildlife - all the airboats are far too noisy...More

Captain Bobby gave us an awesome water tour of the Everglades. We saw an alligator, all kinds of Florida birds, a raccoon, dolphins. Experiencing the mangrove waterways of this National Park is best done with Everglades City Airboat Tours. The landscape is quite unique. Very...More
