First, I don't usually leave reviews and wasn't pressured or asked multiple times to give one. My boyfriend and I went here on my birthday. Wonderful, friendly and clean operation. The 2 way headsets were really a nice touch. Cpt. Steve was our captain. He was awesome. Very knowledgeable and experienced and interactive with us. Don't go anywhere else- this... More

This hour long air boat tour was a little too violent for my tastes. I would have preferred something more leisurely and quiet. The noise of the motor must have dtiven the wildlife away. We only got a glimpse of some water racoons, the rest was just vegetation rushing by. Justin, our guide, was good but his talks were limited... More

On feb 18th we went for our first airboat ride and it was a blast! Capt Justin was funny and so informative of the surrounding area included Turner Rd that he suggested we drive down so we could see alligators, and alligators we saw! Thanks Justin you had me smiling the whole time especially when we visited the "water monkeys"

Very impressed with this company as well as our extremely friendly and knowledgeable Captain, Justin. Boats are much more comfortable than the others, appear to be more well taken care of than other companies and have two way communication headsets instead of just ear covers. But, what blew me away was seeing another airboat company trying to bait a raccoon... More

Six of us were fortunate enough to have Josh as our tour guide. We didn't have reservations and were lucky to get an available opening. Our tour began with an easy motor around the surrounding harbor with an explanation of the local fishing industry. We then continued into some of the local bayous, cruising at an easy and comfortable speed,... More

How's can you not take the time to ride an airboat through the mangrove trees while near the Everglades? Captain Craig took us on a great ride, skillfully navigating through the tunnels carved through the foliage. He kept us informed of the history and ecology of the region through headphones that also filtered out most of the engine noise. As... More

Yes, yes, it is touristy, but we very much enjoyed our 1 hour air boat ride with Captain Matt. Reception is very efficient, checking in & taking payments. Our cost for 4 was $168. The airboats are very well appointed with two way radios that work very well. Captain Matt is a really nice young guy that has been captaining... More

What a great boat trip through the mangroves. Captain Justin was knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to answer any and all questions. And boy could he handle the boat!! I also really appreciate that this company - unlike some others - has a no feeding policy for the raccoons.

Michael, Thank you for visiting with our company and giving us the chance to take you on a airboat tour through the Mangrove Jungles in the Everglades. It's rewarding to our team to hear that you were satisfied with your tour. As you mentioned we do not participate in the feeding of wildlife. Not only is it against the law,... More

We decided to go with Airboats Everglades and loved the experience. They came to pick up us to the hotel, José, a great driver and talker. And then Maurice was our tour guide in the everglades and showed us with the maximum respect for the environment and the animals everything there was to see. Great company and greater people.
