Great time with Captain Bobby. The head sets and communications are excellent and serve to enhance the trip. Suitable for all ages including Seniors! Beautiful day, mid 80's and a great Captain. Thank you!

We took a 9am trip, which I think is best. It gets you out on the water before it gets too busy out there. Two way headsets were excellent to have. Our kids are 11 and 13. It was a great first experience on an airboat. We had some open water runs, some good drifts, went over some very shallow... More

What a great adventure if you have never seen the "inside" of the Everglades. The tour appears to be the usual route taken by many tour companies. Our tour guide was fun and informative. We all loved the headsets that allowed our tour guide to narrate and entertain.

Only to discover that this time of the year there is no alligators there!!!!!!!!!!!! No refund policy, even though I told them that I was very disappointed. Make sure you ask if... More

Thanks for the review. I am sure that you know that alligators are in the wild for one reason, They are wild. We have no control over the wildlife, If we did it would be called a ZOO. Reviewers have to realize that wildlife is out of our control. Our captains are highly skilled at locating them. When they spot... More

If you haven't taken an airboat tour, it is a must do. You'll learn about the Everglades, the mangroves and its history while simultaneously taking a super fun. Everglades City Airboat Tours provided an excellent guide "Craig" who was not only super knowledgeable about the area, he was also a great airboat driver.

Always wanted to ride on an airboat and I wasn't disappointed! Our guide Matt did a great job of handling the boat and narrating our journey. Loved flying through the waterways! Didn't see much in the way of wildlife, but I knew it was a gamble to begin with. According to Matt, the saltier water pushes the gators and manatees... More

Yesterday we went on the best tour of the mangroves you can imagine. We went thru mangrove tunnels, turning and winding down the trails, enjoying the great information given to us by our guide, Matt. He is very knowledgeable and personable, making it so much fun for all of us. Everyone was very friendly and all ages can enjoy this... More

Fun trip zooming through the mangroves on an airboat. We didn't see much in the way of wildlife but it was a fun ride on a hot day.
