We made our way down to the Everglades (from Fort Myers) which took about 2 hours. We stopped at Capt Mitch's as it was one of the first airboat places on our way. We waited about 40 minutes for the next available boat and got Sanford as our captain. We enjoyed a fun hour in the Everglades and got to... More

BORING.....Left at 1205 and returned by 1245, less than an hour! Saw approximately 5 species of birds and Mangroves. Hardly worth the two hour ride to get there. Felt like my $160.00 was wasted! After airboat ride went down the road to a picnic area where we saw a dozen alligators of various sizes. Lots of fish, even a gar!... More

I went on an airboat tour with friends last year somewhere close to Miami. I wish I could remember the name of the place as it was quite special. When my family came to visit from Europe, I figured an airboat tour would be a unique experience. I chose Capt Mitch's because it's closer to where we live on the... More

Capt. Mitch appears to be one of the largest of many air boat tour operators along this stretch of US 41. We've not tried any others near here, but further East some of the others are a bit of a rip-off with huge airboats that provide a very slow ride or drop you off at their Indian souvenir shop out...

Our 2nd time visiting Captain Mitch's - Everglade Airboat Tour! We had a great time with our captain and our crew was happy to find a gator with her babies!

This is an excellent airboat tour through the marshes and mangrove trees. Captain Danny was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining as he explained all the nuances of the everglades. The boats hold approx. 12 people and lasts around an hour as he guides you through the tour. They even let you hold a young alligator at the end of the tour.... More

Great birding & nature ride. Not a tourist trap! Go early, bring lunch as tables on canal are available. Kids can feed fish. We rode with Captain Louis. He was personable & knowledgeable and a great boat operator. Saw several species of birds, some gators and fish. Chance to see everything from otters to invasive pythons. Slim, but not impossible...

Great day trip, arrived early for lunch in town, checked out the National Park Service display, then got on an airboat tour with one of Captain Mitch's airboat drivers. Ours was Stanford, the guy driving boat on the picture on their website front page. Great driver, good stories and information, found lots of wildlife including gators. March is about as... More
