Captain Craig provided us with a thrilling and very informative ride through the mangroves. He started out at a slow speed while describing some of the history of Everglades city and then kicked the boat into high gear for a "hold onto your hat" type of ride through the Everglades. Didn't see any alligators but did see lots of beautiful... More

We had an amazing airboat ride with this company. Capt Matt was awesome. The use of 2 way headsets was perfect. He was able to tell us about the scenery and we could talk to him and each other. The ride through the mangroves and the airboat "slides" across the water were so exciting. I highly recommend this company!

We had a great time. The airboat had comfortable seats, the headsets worked great and Captain Gary gave a very informative tour. Well worth the price and would recommend this company. We decided to go at the last minute and didn't have reservations but were told we could be seated within an hour. This worked out great for us because... More

What a wonderful experience! Captain Craig showed us manatees, raccoons, ibis, osprey, and egrets. He talked about the history of the area and his generations of relatives who settled in the area and their sometimes colorful pass. We were amazed by his skill while speeding through the narrow canals. This was educational and exciting. We highly recommend this tour!

Our captain, Steve, tried to make our ride more fun by going fast then turning quickly so the water sprays. I was in the very front seat on the outside left. Ya, I was smiling :)

Captain Justin was our guide. He was entertaining as well as informative. And it DIDN'T seem like he did the same "speech" although I am sure he does. Two way earphone/microphone system was great. We could ask questions throughout the tour.
