Our tour was given by Captain Tony. He gave us lots of opportunity to ask questions and was really informative. The ride was thrilling and when it was over we wanted to go again!

Our family loved our mangrove tour with Captain Javier! He was just the right mix of fun and knowledge. Loved the gators, the raccoons, and the boats. We also did the swamp buggy tour and the animal sanctuary. Definitely stay for the gator show at Wooten's.

6 of us went on the Airboat Tour. Captain Brown (Westie) was a great guide, well worth the 45 minute drive from Naples. Recommend to anyone looking to get away from the swimming pool for a couple of hours.

Had a 15 minute wait which was perfect so we could hold a baby gator. Our six year old daughter loved it. Seen a couple gators, manatee, and raccoons. Captain Charlie was very informative and answered all of our questions. He made sure to swing the boat around so we could get pics of all the wildlife.

We went on a combo tour. The first leg of the tour was the mangrove. Captain billy and captain Troy were the best! I have a special needs son who has panic attacks. They were so willing to do anything possible to make him as comfortable as possible. The tours were fantastic! Saw gators, manatee, and an eagle!

We bought the combo deal and didn't realize you had to drive to separate places to do the sawgrass tour and swamp buggy ride. Not a huge deal, but it was confusing. Also, our guide, Johnny, didn't educate us about what we were seeing. We just got in a boat and cruised around. The longest portion of our ride was... More

A couple points of clarification: 1. Everglades City enforces a speed limit on all boats. Until we get to the mangrove tunnels beyond the city we must observe it. 2. All our boats have life preservers for all six passengers. Aside from those points, we’re sorry to hear there was confusion about the locations, and we’re very sorry to hear... More

Really enjoyed our 1 hour air boat tour . To be fair we were just there for the cool air boat experience and our captain Doug did not disappoint - really opening up the boat around the mangroves , we were all impressed . Seeing an alligator , stalking the boat - scary , was an added bonus . The... More

We must have had the best Captain of the bunch, he stopped and fed the animals he could find and then when the Alligator appeared he did the ultimate and used my son's GoPro to give us a live shots of the beast in its natural environment ! Great value and highly recommend
