We were really looking forward to this excursion and, although it was perfect weather, we were disappointed because we saw nothing more than thousands of mangroves and one nesting osprey. No complaints about the boat or crew, but we see more aquatic life from the...More

I was in town researching an article I'm writing for Pilot Getaways magazine. I tried out American Airboat tours to see if it was worthwhile to mention in the article's "what to do" section. It certainly is! Capt. Andrew and first mate Debby provided us...More

The tour got off to a slow start as the first stop was by the bridge connecting Goodland to Marco Island. While the history was mildly interesting, it didn't warrant the time devoted to it and we could tell our grandkids (8 and 12), were...More

We recently went on an airboat tour with American Airboat Tours in Goodland, FL. That's near Marco Island, just south of Naples. The 1 1/2 trip is $45 for adults. It's very much worth it if you've never been on an airboat, and if you've...More

Really cool attraction with knowledgable captains. Learned alot about the 10,000 islands off of Florida and the wildlife that lives out there. They mixed fun with education, my 10 year old son loved that. The captain pulled a few 360's wich was great fun! The...More
