This was a fun way to spend an hour. $78 for two of us and an airboat ride through the everglades. It was fun, and a little scary, adding to the adventure. Our captain "Ziggy" was great with a lot of fun information. We saw one gator and baby raccoons. The boat ride was a lot of fun!

If you're looking for an awesome experience and some history about Florida wet lands and the beautiful alligators go book a tour at Captain Jack. Ask for Captain Jacob, I think he might be the best Captain in the business right now, he is knowledgeable and willing to make sure your airboat ride is the best one. You will leave... More

Capt. Javier was a star in every sense, knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. The trip he gave us was quite excellent... Gators in the water, Racoons in the trees and a great ride through the Mangroves. Sadly the women at their HQ, some mile down the road were not such a joy... what a sour faced bunch as they barked instructions... More

We (a group of 8) drove up from Miami to check off the last item on our to-do list - the everglades. We didn't expect too much, but I must say we were quite blown away. The one hour airboat tour took us over miles of mirror-like water. Though we saw only one alligator (turns out summer is the best... More

Captain Travis at Captain Jacks airboats was the ABSOLUTE BEST!! We smiled for days after our ride! We had 4 in our group and only 1 had ever been on an airboat. All 4 of us had the best time and the day will be forever remembered by all of us. Captain Travis was a very nice man and he... More

Great scenic views and photo opportunities. We saw two alligators and the captain was able to lure one near the boat.

Captain Jearl Brown of Captain Jack's Airboat Tours was a fantastic guide! I have been on many airboat rides over the years, and I still learned something new from Captain Brown! I asked about the raccoons and He coaxed one out of hiding for us.

This was a very fun activity! Racing through the mangroves was exciting! We saw birds, fish, alligators, and a raccoon family! Not as fast as I had hoped for. But, still quite a ride!
