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". I think the Capt. felt us out a little at first meandering through the mangroves, then he really let it rip! What an exhilaration... More

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,

This was even more fun than I expected. It was driving season so no gators, but we saw an osprey and some other cool stuff. Capt. Javier was the best!

Second time doing an airboat tour with Captain Jack's and once again it was awesome! Our captain this time was Wesley and he was great; fun, answered any questions we had. I like this airboat ride in the mangroves because the boat is smaller. It holds 6 (at most) plus the captain; 4 comfortably. You will get spritzed with water... More

Our family of four took the hour tour on an airboat through the mangrove swamps. While the ride itself was quite exciting and our operator obviously very skilled at piloting one of these fast, loud boats, we did not see any wildlife, except for three bottle nose dolphins under a bridge near where the boats are docked. Racing through the... More

This was a good time! The boat was fast and the employees were all very nice and helpful. Captain Jacob is an asset to the business as he was funny and very informative about the mangroves and animals who live there. I would recommend this tour. $77 for two people.

Amazing time, my wife booked this place online after reading this the reviews. Then after driving down and passing a bunch of places closer she began to think she made a mistake. Let me say it's worth the drive! It's a lot of fun. We got of our cruise ship and had a day to kill before our flight so... More

Great time with the $60 package. The Mangrove scenic tour with Captain Matt was fun and quite beautiful. Captain Robby on the grasslands airboat ride was great and had some fun moves with the boat.

We traveled all over the southern part of the state of Florida literally from Tampa down to key west and up the other side to Orlando and this was one of if not the highlight of our trip! We didn't know what to expect and wow, what a blast! So many crazy animals compared to California where we are from.... More

Visited as a group of 7, so had top split boats as they only hold 6. This is worth doing as the small boats are great. Mixed packages are offered that include airboat in mangrove swamp, grassland and animal attraction etc we chose mid top package with 1.5 hr on airboats over two rides and the animal park. The experience... More
