Captain Justin took us on an excellent tour of the mangroves area of the Everglades. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour (ask about the swamp monkeys). Having headsets meant that we could hear his commentary, and they also reduce some of the noise from the airboat itself. We felt completely safe at all times, and... More

Experienced and knowledgeable. Well worth the drive in busy traffic from Ft Myers. Beautiful part of the country and a unique way to see it up close.

The boat was comfortable for two couples, easily accessible for these seniors. Having two way headphones is great for communication. We had been on an airboat in the Everglades previously, saw lots of wildlife. However, on this trip we saw 1 egret and done raccoons, that's it. The driver was friendly enough but seemed interested mainly in speed and how... More

We have taken an airport tour before and so we were expecting interesting information from the guide throughout the tour. We were also expecting to see a lot of wildlife, i.e. many birds, alligators, etc. The guide (Craig) was pitiful and seemed to have almost no knowledge of the area. The wildlife was almost non-existent (and no alligators at all).... More

We went to the Everglades to do a boat tour and hopefully see an alligator. The ride was fun and Steve was our guide. He was full of information on the tunnel of mangrove trees and the habitat. We did see an alligator and several birds. They also told us where else to stop and see alligators and manatees and... More

The boats were extremely loud and there were way too many of them. The captain was friendly and knowledgeable but he was difficult to hear. He was obviously on a tight schedule because of the sheer volume of boats on tour. I felt that it was a dangerous tour that could have gone very wrong at a moments notice. The... More

We were on Sanibel Island but wanted a taste of the Everglades. Drove down to Everglade City and did the air boat tour. Was lots of fun. Only 6 of us in the boat. Headphones were nice so you could hear over the motor. Great guide who was full of information. Did not see too much wildlife. Guide gave us... More

We went on an amazing air boat tour with Captain Josh. I had been several years ago with another company - it was just ok. So, this time, I decided to try the original. Love the two way head phones. Josh was so knowledgeable and very funny. We didn't see any alligators, but had an amazing time anyway. He showed... More
