We took an airboat tour at Captain Jacks today. After the great reviews I must say I was a little disappointed. Our tour guide Ben did not explain very much about the Mangroves and wild life in the area. We did see the raccoons and the ride itself was fun when at full speed but I must say I expected... More

We had Travis as our captain and he was great! Explained about the "no alligators now". Made up for it by showing us as many others animals/birds (raccoons and crab traps) he spotted. Did some nice spins in the water too! Travis was only concerned that we had fun and offered anyone to drive the boat too! We did take... More

We also had Johnny as our Captain for the airboat ride. Like previous poster mentioned, this is the dry season and not likely that alligators would be spotted. The boatride itself was what I was most excited for anyways. He did not disappoint. Great time! Hang on to your hat!

We had a group of 9 and reserved 2 airboats - one for the adults and one for our kids (ages 15-21). Our tour guides were fabulous - very knowledgeable, courteous, funny and safe. Jake had the kids on his boat and they had a blast. The adults had Billy and we had just as much fun. Things to note... More

We had captain Johnny and had a great time! He explained that because of the time of the year, we wouldn't see any alligators. And that was fine with us... we have seen enough of them. My party of three got on a jet boat within 20 minutes of getting our tickets and after finding where to get on and... More

Captain Jack's is awesome! We did the Mangrove Tour with Captain Jacob, and it was a blast. We did the Grassland Tour with Captain Tommy and we learned a lot plus we loved the ride! An adrenaline rush. This is my second year in a row, and I highly recommend visiting here!

We arrived at Captain Jacks and were greeted by our guide Travis. He was very professional yet fun. He grew up in the Everglades and has been driving air boats since he was a kid so I felt secure with him in control. He gave us a thrilling ride though the mangroves going fast and doing some awesome spins. I... More

To see the Everglades en the mangroves you make an trip with the hovercraft boats from captain Jack in Everglades City. In an small boat with 6 peoples you see everything. It is exciting how fast the boat ride in the small canals of the mangrove. After that take an hamburger bread in the Island café, very good.

This is the best way to introduce someone to the scenic beauty of the Evergalsdes. Follow up the airboat rides with the swamp buggy rides and the animal adventure. Best $170 imaginable for 2 people.
