We have experienced airboat tours previously however, our young CAPTAIN TROY took it to a whole new level of fun and educational! Cannot say enough about the fantastic experience we enjoyed. Our 11 year old granddaughter has talked it about for the last week!! When we visit again we will MOST DEFINITELY ask for Captain Troy. Thanks for the wonderful... More

My family of six recently went out with Capt. Soto for a 1 hr. thrilling mangrove tour. Within the first couple of moments we seen a manatee at the "waiting" area before we hit the "track". I think the Capt. felt us out a little at first meandering through the mangroves, then he really let it rip! What an exhilaration... More

We went out with Captain Brown for a one hour airboat excursion and enjoyed ourselves "flying" through the channels. Though we had hope to see some alligators. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again, or recommend your attraction to others. Thanks for a fun time before the rains came. We hope to visit again this year,

This was even more fun than I expected. It was driving season so no gators, but we saw an osprey and some other cool stuff. Capt. Javier was the best!

Second time doing an airboat tour with Captain Jack's and once again it was awesome! Our captain this time was Wesley and he was great; fun, answered any questions we had. I like this airboat ride in the mangroves because the boat is smaller. It holds 6 (at most) plus the captain; 4 comfortably. You will get spritzed with water... More

Our family of four took the hour tour on an airboat through the mangrove swamps. While the ride itself was quite exciting and our operator obviously very skilled at piloting one of these fast, loud boats, we did not see any wildlife, except for three bottle nose dolphins under a bridge near where the boats are docked. Racing through the... More

This was a good time! The boat was fast and the employees were all very nice and helpful. Captain Jacob is an asset to the business as he was funny and very informative about the mangroves and animals who live there. I would recommend this tour. $77 for two people.

Amazing time, my wife booked this place online after reading this the reviews. Then after driving down and passing a bunch of places closer she began to think she made a mistake. Let me say it's worth the drive! It's a lot of fun. We got of our cruise ship and had a day to kill before our flight so... More
