Fun airboat ride never been on one till then. Lots of mangroves and grass fun turns and spins driver check after every spin or turn to make sure we were still having fun. The small zoo there is cute lots of gators even an otter. They also have other animals there like the Florida panther overall a good place to go

I was so worried about taken a 2 year old and 11 month old on the airboat. However it was so much fun and both kids loved it. Did the swap buggy as well. Staff there is great and very knowledgeable.

We booked the Wooten airboat tour and the swamp buggy rides with Captain Jack as a triple package. Really fun! The airboat tours were high speed rides. Capt Steve was THE MAN! Multiple 360° spinouts at high speed was the hit of the tour. Loved it. Would do it again.
The swamp buggy ride was hard to critique because there wasn't much mud, lol. What made the ride interesting as heck...was our guide Shelly. We had about twenty minutes getting to know her alone before other people got there and she was authentic, interesting and knowledgeable. Learned alot about the habitat, history and just plain trivia, which I found interesting. We lucked into seeing a wild bear on the tour. Now, I can see where some people would have questioned the value of the swamp buggy part of the tour. Shelly made it worth the price for me. To be honest, she was the type of interesting person I could share a beer with...not to mention a bear. Anyway, If Shelly wouldn't have been our guide, it wouldn't have been as interesting. Good job

We called Wooten's and choose them based on TripAdvisor rating and also that they had big air boats. We had a party of seven and these boats hold about 20. Captain Steven did a great job with the air boat and navigating the Everglades. This was a 30 minute tour so mostly he drove around doing 360s and cutting through the mangroves. The ride started off a little slow but after his first little stop and talk he definitely got more aggressive with the driving. It was amazing to see what Captain Steven can do with a large air boat full of adults. After the tour we visited the "zoo" included in the tour. They had a couple of snakes a lot of crocs and alligators with 5 big cats. One guy got sprayed by Tiger pee. I felt bad for him but how many people has been peed on by a Tiger and lived to tell about it, sorry dude :) Overall we had a good time for $32.50/adult $20/child (10 year and younger).
