We did the combo of Mangrove & Swampland tour. The Mangrove tour was definitely the best part. This was done by Captain Jack's people themselves. The Swampland tour is done by Wooten's and starts from another location. The Mangrove tour takes you through the mangroves forests and lasts about 1 hour or so. We got to see no alligators but...

We did the combination adventure which mangroves, grassland, zoo, and swamp buggy. First off after paying $278 for 3 of us we were informed we had to drive to a separate location to do the grassland, swamp buggy and zoo. It was a 2 hour wait to do the mangroves tour 1st. Then after we board the airboat we notice... More

My husband and I were researching online for which local airboat tour to travel to. It's very hard to make a decision purely off online details but I am SO glad we chose Captain Jack's! Our airboat driver was Dwain and he was awesome. He made sure to describe the mangrove type, various wildlife, & made for an epic trip!... More

not a warm welcome - the young lady at the front told us she was really tired and couldn't get herself together. SO a little bit off putting. However this was quickly forgotten by the Captains. Our guy was Tray, he really knew his thing and was honestly passionate about his surroundings. He drove like he was in an Audi... More

First experience of an airboat, it was good fun, exhilarating at times. My wife didn't think as much as she barely opened her eyes, however it's much like a track day you get to watch as the captain clip appexes through the mangrove trees in a sort of a circuit. Our captain (Wesley) was clearly very knowledgeable about the whole... More

Arrived there and they were not ready for us even though we had A RESERVATION! They assigned us " Captin Johnny" who arrived with an addittude and a heated discussion ensued as we wanted the shortest one in the group to ride in the front so that she could see. Took over 5 min. of standing our ground before he... More

Thanks for sending your feedback. We're sorry you didn't have a good time. We spoke with Captain Johnny and he told us that you were unwilling to follow his safety instructions. Safety is our highest priority, and captains need to distribute weight evenly to keep our boat rides safe. There should be no exceptions or excuses when it comes to... More
