Being on an airboat in the Everglades is fun. The boats go fast, the area is very unique and the experience is worth doing. But, except for the penned up alligators in their exhibit, we saw no alligators. It seems what the tour might lack...More

Went on an airboat tour with captain Robby! Had a blast and got to chat with him after!! Then went to the animal sanctuary where Levi was able to answer a lot of our questions and let us hold one of the cutest gators Casper!...More

Had a great time with Captain Robby. Have been there many times and always learn something new. Levi did a great job on the alligator show as well.

Captain Robby gave us a enchanting tour into the swamp. Exotic when coming from Sweden. However, the caged ragoon, lions and tigers almost made us cry in their small cages😥

This tour sucked. It stated online it was an hour and it only lasted 35 minutes. Not only did we pay $70 but then found out the drivers are paid on tips. Very boring and not worth the time or money. Find another airboat tour.

My husband and I took this airboat ride and were less than impressed. We were told the airboat ride would be an hour long and it ended up being just a bit more than 1/2 hour. Kind of pricey for the time actually spent on...More

We did the Airboat and Swamp buggy combo tour. The Airboat is fast and loud and a fun ride! Don't miss the airboat. We saw alligators and other wildlife. Our captain was informative and fun and well skilled in navigating the airboat. If you've never...More

Very friendly staff. An expensive experience but has to be done if visiting the Everglades. The air boat ride is good. The buggy ride is ok but difficult to hear the driver.

This tour is unlike any other. We took the combo package - airboat, gator show/zoo, and swamp buggy tour. We saw 3 large wild alligators on the airboat tour, and many, many birds. We had a blast splashing around. Carl, a native of the area,...More

Hi, LauriLynne. Thanks for asking. We rescued the animals from multiple previous owners who could no longer care for them. Most of the animals were raised in captivity, which means they must now rely on humans for food and... More

We were recommended by our hotel to go to Wootens, they sold us a discount ticket, and advised us to just show up.

I believe you have to be a certain height to ride on the boat. 2 year olds wouldn't make the cut. The ride goes fast at times with sharp turns
