We had an amazing tour with Captain Bob, who was knowledgeable, fun and entertaining. We went with a family who had 2 boys and he was great with the children, even letting them sit in his seat to take pictures - obviously when the boat was stationary 😄 We saw raccoons, and dolphins including a baby which was fantastic.

Enjoyed the tour through the mangroves with Captain Craig. Our 7 year old loves the trip --headsets were a plus! Capt. Craig was full of History which was very insightful, I think we all learned something new. Great personal touches to make the 7 year feel like the First Mate--thanks again! The Manatee was a nice surprise!

This was a great tour and really got to appreciate the Eco system of the Everglades. We saw Gators, Dolphins, Racoons and Manatees all up close and personal. Our Captain Matt was very informative and lots of fun. The sliding around the corners was so much fun. The two way radio was awesome meaning you could ask any questions that... More

We had the 9:00 a.m. tour, our captain, Craig, told us a lot about the wildlife, mangroves, and the everglades. He was funny and kind (took pictures from us during the tour). It was an awesome experience and we would definitly do it again. We got the chance to see Dolphins and Manatees. We didn't see Crocodiles, but Craig recommended... More

What a great time we had on our airboat tour this morning. We had the first tour of the day booked and it did not disappoint. No gators due to brackish water but saw a gorgeous little raccoon and some dolphins up close! Our guide Justin was fab! He told us loads about the area as well as making other... More

Did the 9.30am trip with Josh. Liked it and learned a lot. It is not cheap but we thought it was worth it.

We loved the two way communication that the other tours did not have. Airboats were of a newer fleet. Top notch tour. I highly recommend them. Recommend doing the early tours during the summer heat. The City Cafe over the bridge has spectacular seafood.
