We must have had the best Captain of the bunch, he stopped and fed the animals he could find and then when the Alligator appeared he did the ultimate and used my son's GoPro to give us a live shots of the beast in its natural environment ! Great value and highly recommend

My husband and I rode with Captain Billy, along with one other family. Our boat had 7 total people, including the Captain. The number was just right, not too big and not too small. Captain Billy was a ton of fun, no lack of adventure with him! If you go I'd recommend him! :) The boat was in a good... More

We had an airboat ride with captain Gary and it was awesome. The way he took his time to see and tell everything, from spiders, to birds, to manatees, to alligator. So for all future airboats visitors choose Captain Jack's Airboat Tours:-)

The tour we did was the Total Everglades Combo, which included everything. We arrived for the first tour since it is August and it gets hot later on. We started with the mangrove tour and... More
