A nice 1 hour tour

Jason is a knowledgeable and personable tour guide. We really enjoyed our time with him and recommend him to anyone wanting to take an airboat ride on the lake.

As a part of my mother's 80th birthday celebration, we had Jason take our family out on his airboat. We had an excellent time. Jason was very personable, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. The gators did not disappoint, and we were able to get up close and (almost) personal. I give Jason and our two hour... More

Well worth it. We searched reviews, had a great feeling from the posts on Captain Jason, and our expectations were exceeded. I think you would be hard pressed to get the intimacy and value of his tours on the larger boats. Captain Jason was very informative on the habitat, the ecosystem and relationship in regards to the everglades. He will... More

We could not have imagined a better experience. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and provided us an amazing trip. We saw many,many birds, alligators from baby to juvenile to adult and flowering water lilies. The ride was very comfortable and exciting as we wove through the vegetation with birds scooting out of our way to the left and right! Highly... More

Yesterday, my wife and I drove from Sebastian to Lake Okeechobee just to go air-boating with Captain Jason. What a great experience. Jason made our ride very personalized in order for us to experience what our expectations were. He has a great personality and is very knowledgeable. Well worth the trip.
