Captain Louis is a 7th generation native of the Everglades and an all around pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide. We had a great experience, saw 4 gators and lots of wading birds and waterfowl. We went early and were the only two on the boat. I'm an ecologist by training and really had an enjoyable time - highly recommended.

We decided to go on the air boat tour as a last minute decision. Our Captain was very educational but fun. During our tour we saw 5 large alligators and lots of other wildlife. Beautiful ride and tons of fun. I would do it again.

I took this same tour 8 or 9 years ago with some guys and had such a good time that I wanted to take my family a long this time. Capt Mitch's has their own private area, so they don't have to compete against or worry about running into other boats. The four of us were the only people on... More

This is a great place to begin an airboat tour. Its away from Everglades City (the nearest "civilization") which gets you into the Everglades quicker. Our tour included mangroves and sawgrass, plus lots of exotic birds and a very up close alligator encounter. The captain (Mark) is six-generation everglades family and super knowledgeable about the everglades. This was my first... More

Had a great time with Captain Mark. He definitely knew his stuff, even called an alligator out from the wild. The airboat is loud but my 2yr old did just fine. At the end we all got the chance to hold a baby gator. Well worth the trip, time, and money!

Came across Capt Mitch by accident really. We spent an hour on the boat with Capt Danny, he was polite, extremely knowledgeable and very humorous. We learnt an awful lot about the Everglades and its ecosystem. We saw a gator up close which you cannot always guarantee. At the end of a thoroughly enjoyable trip we got the opportunity to... More

The ride was very nice and the scenery spectacular. They do have 'the alligator' of the farm. The 'captain' was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about the swamp. But the boat we were in broke in the middle of the swamp. We had to wait about 15 mins for another boat to bring a clamp and... More
