Been there on Labor Day 2017. The ride was fun, the boat was more or less in good shape, and the captain (Tony) was very friendly and knowledgeable. We did enjoy it, though I honestly think it's a bit overpriced. Also, we didn't really run...More

We visited Captain Jack's Airboat tours today and we enjoyed our ride with Captain Jacob pretty much. On the one hand it was a very informative tour. Jacob told us a lot about the Everglades and he has an answer to all of our questions....More

Been on a few airboat rides but never like this. Captain Craig from the beginning was knowledgably of the area and history, took a personal interest in everyone on the tour and provided a ride that was unbelievable. The Mangrove tour, because of Captain Craig,...More

Call ahead to book time, this guarantees you a spot. We arrived early and they asked if we wanted to go earlier and we did. This gave us time to enjoy the animal park associated with Captain Jack's. Don't forget to see... More
