Ours was Stanford, the guy driving boat on the picture on their website front page. Great driver, good stories and information, found lots of wildlife including gators. March is about as... More

Before coming here we were told in a different place that you don't normally see alligators at this time of the year. The lady at Capt Mitch's said that was no true but, since we were taking the last tour boat (4pm) it was not that easy to see them. However, we saw 2, it was raining and it made... More

Visited with my family, including a teenage boy. Sooo much fun and quite educational! Very authentic. Danny was an awesome captain/guide. We saw 4 gators on our trip.

This was our first experience on an airboat and we loved it - great fun! Captain Danny was our tour guide and he was extremely informative about the ecosystem and wildlife, and very friendly. We saw a couple of alligators and many different types of birds. Highly recommend this company!

Thanks for your time and expertise. We totally recommend your tour! The boat driver guide provided lots of explanation. He was very kind to a family with a young child on board. Viewing was easy. He slowed down or stopped so we could see and photograph whatever happened by. Well done!

The fan boat tour was an hour and we covered a lot! Tons of birds and 3 alligators plus mangrove, marshes and swamps. Enough adventure to keep everyone attentive and knowledgable narration from Captain Danny. $40 per adult

While there are many air boat tours to chose from in the Everglades. we chose Capt Mitch's for it's easy location, length of tour and simplicity of tour options. Located right on Hwy 41 on the Marco Island side of the Everglades. it offers 1 hour tours that travel through both mangrove and grasslands. We did not need a visit... More

Even though they are locals I felt like they are taking advantage of the tourists. The cost was more then another air boat ride we took and they charged us for ear plugs and even with a coupon it was more expensive. The hour tour was maybe 35-40m, not an hour. Our Captain was knowledgeable but not much more then... More

This tour totally delivered!. Great captain. I would recommend this tour to all. We saw alligators and went though the mangroves, grassy land and swamp! After the ride they let us hold a small alligator.
