We'd never been on an airboat or toured the Everglades and are so glad my husband and I spent 2 hours with Captain Wayne Gilbert. Easy and fast communication via email to set up our reservation. Upon arrival, we let him know we were bird watchers and interested in all the flora and fauna. A beautiful morning spent viewing Wood... More

Tuesday we got to cross something off our bucket lists. An airboat trip through the Everglades and it did not disappoint! Our guide, Captain Wayne Gilbert Jr, of Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides, was very knowledgeable, informative and made the ride fun, as well! We saw and learned about many types of birds and gators of varying sizes, from babies to... More

The tour takes you through several parts of the everglades and the very personable guide points out many types of birds, plant life, crocodiles and local history. It was a blast!

I took my two of my sons on a two hour airboat tour with Captain Wayne last Saturday. What fun! The boat ride was so smooth and often times really fast. It was thrilling! Captain Wayne answered all of our questions about the area and the flora and fauna, especially the gators and the birds. The Glades are so beautiful... More

What a great experience we had! Our guide Capt. Gilbert was the BEST! Very knowledgeable of the Everglades and handling of his airboat. He grew up in the Everglades and knows it very well with stories of growing up and life experiences. He Also knows the eco system very well and knew where the wildlife would be. His airboat was...

Had a knowledgeable guide and air boat operator. The Everglades themselves could have been explored in 1 hr and 15 minutes vs 2 full hours. Several stops and 'pauses' in the tour. Saw gators, birds and other wildlife. The question to me is...is it worth paying the higher prices for this tour vs a tour that has more people for... More

Wayne G, Owner at Fort Lauderdale Airboat Rides, responded to this review

Sir Thank you for taking the time to do the review , it seemed like a duplicate of our only other 3 star review, there is and was an option on our web-site for you to do a one hour ride that is a thrill ride and has no eco stops maybe you missed that on the first section of... More

Our first time ever on a fan boat and we had the time of our life. The Everglades was breath taking and seeing the alligators in their natural habitat was beautiful.

We took our 3 year old Grand daughter and my brother and his wife on the airboat ride into the Everglades... what fun we all had and the picture that was taken was a great souvenir for us all. I highly recommend this attractions. If you are crunched for time you can skip the alligator show, we were not impressed.
