Went on a tour on November 30. Captain Craig was very personable, informative and entertaining. I learned a lot about the history of the region. He brought the boat close up to raccoons, a huge alligator and many birds. We had ample opportunity to take wonderful pictures. He also took pictures of everyone on the boat with our cameras. I...

If you want to do more than just sit and be told about the Everglades make sure you take a tour with Everglades City Airboat Tours. They advertise the only two way headsets and from what I saw and had experience with they are the only ones. Many reviews rave about the personalities of the captains which I think come... More

My wife, mother in-law, brother in-law and his grildfriend all took the airboat ride with Captain Craig and we couldn't have gotten a better guide if we asked for it. I highly recommend you request Captain Craig if you can. The tour itself is really great but Captain Craig made it all the more better. His knowledge and personable personality... More

We joined the mid-afternoon 1-hour tour. The 2-way headsets work great; Captain Craig enthousiastically told us about the mangroves, the wildlife and the wild life of the people born and raised here. We could ask Craig questions and hear each other's comments. We saw dolphins (a mother and child), alligator, raccoon, and several bird species. But most of all, Craig's... More

Amazing value for $40 + tip. Captain Craig gave an informative and interesting dialog throughout the tour. Headphones are provided to protect you ears from the noise of the engine and to hear Captain Craig. Saw Manatee, many varieties of birds, raccoon family and an alligator. Got some great video and photos! It was a cool morning so I'm glad... More

We took this tour as a last minute thing and drove from Ft. Myers to make it there. When it was apparent we'd be a couple of minutes late, they accommodated us and waited. They also had a great veteran discount for my husband, and life jackets for my 10 month old daughter. It was awesome to be able to... More

Highly recommend especially since they have 2-way radio headsets to ask questions to the guide. Our whole family enjoyed it and we have two teenagers! The boats go pretty fast and the guide gives great information as adds humor. I also recommend visiting the local museum for area history. It's free too!

We had a great time with Matt on our Airboat tour. He loves the area and talked about the wildlife, fishing and other sites in the area. We saw crocs, raccoons and many birds. He also took photos of us on the boat which was a great touch. Loved the 2 way headsets. Highly recommend people book with Everglades as... More
