The drive to Captain Mitch's was a fun scenic adventure in itself. Upon arrival, check in was easy. We boarded the boat, which holds up to 12 people, so you will get to make some friends. Captain Danny was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Knew SO MUCH about the history of the area (since being raised there), scientific reasons... More

Captain Danny was a native swamp man who knew the Everglades. The one hour ride had all the alligators and birds you could which to see up close. Captain Dan stopped the boat numerous times to explain anything you wished to know about anything. The BEST feature of Captain Mitch's Air Boats is that they lease 10sq. miles of private... More

Captain Louis was great - very knowledgeable and very engaging. We'd give him, and our tour, a 10. Great trip and a huge gator!

Captain Cliff was wonderful and very knowledgeable, saw several alligators, all kinds of birds and enjoyed the airboat ride very much. After the ride we got to hold a baby alligator! Will do it again next time we go to the Everglades.

We had a great time with Capt. Cliff through the mangroves and grasses. He made everyone feel comfortable, was more than happy to answer questions and gave us a nice history of the area. Saw many birds and several gators. Highly recommend and will return again in the future with my grandkids as I know they'll love this!!

A fun tour through the grasslands and mangrove tunnels with Cliff. He was knowledgeable of the history, the land and knew spot on where the gators were. Many white ibis, pink spoonbills, cormorants, ducks, and wood storks. So cool to see hundreds of birds gather and enjoy. Highly recommend.

Second time at Captain Mitch's and had a great time!! We had Captain Cliff today and he was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Captain Cliff took the time to teach us about the everglades eco system while showing us many Alligators getting us up close and personal. He took the time to stop several times along the way to explain... More

Having done an Everglades boat tour, we also wanted to do an airboat tour and chose this one out of convenience. Know that this is not a private tour. By private, they mean that the land is private. The airboats hold 12 people seated on 3 bench rows. We sat in the back row as everyone clamores for the front... More
