This was so much fun. Worth the 1 1/2 hour drive from Ft. Myer's Beach. The team was so nice and knowledgeable! Their ancestral history goes back to the 1800s-- so fun to listen to! They also are very good about being environmentally responsible and preserving the wildlife and natural beauty! They were fun and entertaining!!

I have only been on one Airboat Tour, so my ability to compare and contrast is limited. That's the only reason for the 4 star vs. 5 star rating. This is a family and native to Everglades operated establishment. Capt. Craig was informative. He shares history of the area, flora and fauna, anecdotes and some of his personal history. He... More

Keep driving on DuPont Rd to the end at which you will find Totches'. They have a system of booking every half hour. I recommend reservations to get a seat. The tour was an hour long. Coupons can be found in a fold out map titled South West Florida Guide-Map. Use them!! For two couples it saves $10/ couple. We... More

Captain Craig gave us great tour of the Everglades. He took the time to tell us all about the Everglades, the mangroves (red, white and black). He is very personable and can really handle the airboat.

A knowledgeable, skilled airboat captain made for a great experience. Capt. Craig Daniels, Jr., a 7th generation resident of the area, made the 1 hour tour leave you with wanting to return for more.

The first air boat ride we have been and so much fun!! Capt. Craig was interesting, engaging and very professional. The scenery was beautiful and the weather perfect. The only suggestion would be to make the ride longer. We were sorry to see it end!! Thank you so much for a great memory!

Second time around for me, first time for my family. Captain Craig was fantastic - fun, informative, engaging, accommodating, and great with the kids and adults alike. If you want to airboat the Everglades, you must do the 90-minute with Totch's.
