Captain Craig was super knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. His driving was so thrilling I thought I was on csi Miami. M.y friends and family can't believe the photos we took.... More

The airboat tour was very exciting! Speeding through the mangrove trees and turning and twisting at high speed was a blast! The addition of the headsets is a plus - would highly recommend Everglades City Airboat Tours just for that reason alone. Their captains are very knowledgeable about the area and have a great sense of humor. We spotted an... More

I was afraid of going on the ride in the Everglades (i'm terrified of snakes) but I had a blast. The trip was exhilarating for me and I felt safe at all times! The air boat barely fits through the mangroves in the narrow passages. Our Captain Justin was a skilled driver and when possible/safe opened up the throttle and... More

We went for the tour with Cpt. Justin and it was just an amazing experience. The speed when flying through the mangrooves, all kind of animals and birds together with the nice and pleasant style of Justin... this guy knows a lot about what he tells... it was just a huge WOW. Thanks to the whole team for providing such... More

What a great and surprising time we had taking this airboat tour. I had been on one years ago, from another location and was just going along with the group when agreeing to take this ride. I was so delighted with the experience. My only complaint was that it didn't last longer. When you board the boat, which sits three... More

Had a wonderful time with captain Justin. He made the trip fun and was very knowledgeable. He even told us where to drive to see other animals around the area. Also the boats and the headphones we all very well maintained and clean. Went with two friends but would consider taking the family if we where back in the area.... More

I always wanted to see the Everglades. Capt. Craig gave us an exciting ride through the mangroves. This is the only vendor I saw that had headsets for communication, not to mention a great waiting area with restroom facilities. I would highly recommend this company.
