Javier was a great captain and guide. The kids loved it.. Thanks Javier One negative was the animal sanctuary, they have Siberian tigers and panthers cooped up in small pens.. it is a shame to see these animals in such cramped conditions.

We visited Captain Jack's and did the airboat tour. It was very good and Travis was a great guide, answering all of our questions. I would very much recommend it and you should ask for Travis to be your guide.

Captain travis was very knowledgeable and full of humour and fun. High speeds and quick turns combined with sightings of big alligators make for a great few hours for all ages. We also saw raccoons and banana spiders!!!!

I wouldn't have thought so for the Mangrove tour but definitely at the second site. Probably worth double checking with the tour office.

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
