Captain Dwain was excellent. We had a senior with us who was using a walker, and captain Dwain personally helped her onto the boat and into her seat and off the boat all the way to the parking lot with an extra helping of kindness. The ride was fast and fun but not too rough for us. We even found... More

We took our 2 and 3 yr olds out and they had a great time. Captain Ken was our tour guide and he was just terrific - he really knows his stuff. He gave us a great talk on gators and the history of the area. He also gave us a real fun ride - from fast to slow. Can't... More

This is really not a tour. It is first and foremost a ride on an airboat. The lady who sold us the tickets said you may see wildlife but it is not guaranteed. Well, we did see a raccoon and the dorsal of a dolphin but that was all. The ride goes through the mangroves very fast and when you... More

Captain tony provided a great trip. We saw 8 gators on the trip. Well worth the drive south. Also captain Marco was great and Levi the gator wrestler.

Captain Tony was excellent. Great sense of humor and very informative. I had been on one previous airboat ride with a different company, but Captain Jack's was great especially with Captain Tony as our driver!!

Today we did the airboat tour with Captain Billy driving the airboat. What an exceptional day we had. He made it an exciting ride, was very informative about the plants, animals, & alligators. He was also very polite, saying yes ma'am/sir. We've done this tour before, bringing friends down for the experience, he made it the very best for us.

This was a fun way to spend an hour. $78 for two of us and an airboat ride through the everglades. It was fun, and a little scary, adding to the adventure. Our captain "Ziggy" was great with a lot of fun information. We saw one gator and baby raccoons. The boat ride was a lot of fun!

If you're looking for an awesome experience and some history about Florida wet lands and the beautiful alligators go book a tour at Captain Jack. Ask for Captain Jacob, I think he might be the best Captain in the business right now, he is knowledgeable and willing to make sure your airboat ride is the best one. You will leave... More

Capt. Javier was a star in every sense, knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. The trip he gave us was quite excellent... Gators in the water, Racoons in the trees and a great ride through the Mangroves. Sadly the women at their HQ, some mile down the road were not such a joy... what a sour faced bunch as they barked instructions... More

We (a group of 8) drove up from Miami to check off the last item on our to-do list - the everglades. We didn't expect too much, but I must say we were quite blown away. The one hour airboat tour took us over miles of mirror-like water. Though we saw only one alligator (turns out summer is the best... More
