We visited Captain Jack's and did the airboat tour. It was very good and Travis was a great guide, answering all of our questions. I would very much recommend it and you should ask for Travis to be your guide.

Captain travis was very knowledgeable and full of humour and fun. High speeds and quick turns combined with sightings of big alligators make for a great few hours for all ages. We also saw raccoons and banana spiders!!!!

We did a package deal with two airboat tours. The first trip through the mangroves was our first experience in this territory. For this reason a more informative trip would have been appreciated. Our captain gave a great thrill ride and the scenery was beautiful....More

I'd really been looking forward to the mangrove airboat tour but I'm sorry to say I was really disappointed. Yes it's a fast boat ride, but I had also expected to learn something about the mangrove habitat and the wildlife that lives there. Nothing of...More
