We experienced an excellent hour on an airboat ride through the Everglades . Captain Travis was really informative and an awesome driver ( do they drive or sail those machines?). We saw dolphin, alligator and raccoon. Fully recommended.

Our small family booked an airboat trip with Captain Jack. It was a great thing and an amazing tour. Not only the trip itself but much more because of the tour guide - sorry - captain SoTo. He knows the area of everglades like his own pocket. And he took really care for all the family members. Especially our young... More

My husband and I took our kids here for an hour airboat ride through the mangroves. Captain Tony gave us our money's worth!

If anyone is thinking of doing an airboat ride, this is... 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".

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,
