We reserved the night before and they did not ask for credit card info at the time of reservation. We booked the one hour mangrove airboat ride and half hour grassland airboat ride as a combo. The mangrove ride was interesting as we saw an alligator, a manatee and a dolphin. It was a small boat that took 6 passengers. The grassland ride was at another location, which wasn't far. However, we did not enjoy the second ride as much. The boat was bigger for 16 passengers. There wasn't much new to see and we should have gone on only the first one. The visit to the animal sanctuary and alligator show was included in the price. I would not say the animal sanctuary and show were exceptional, but why not if you are already there. 15 percent gratuities for airboat captains are appreciated.

Had an excellent time! Captain Craig on the mangrove tour, and captain Tommy on the grassland tour were both great. I would definitely go back again, and highly recommend to friends and family. Thanks, captains Craig, and Tommy for some awesome memories!

We rented a car and drove down from FMB—about an hour and 20 minutes. We took the mangrove airboat tour with Captain James. He was a great driver. Gave us some fun & fast twists & turns through the mangroves. The mangroves themselves are pretty awesome to look at— like an enchanted fairy tale with their arm-like twisted branches that reach down into the water. Driving fast through them is pretty awesome. That would have been cool enough but we also saw an alligator which was fun! Came very close to our boat. It’s definitely worth it if you’re anywhere in the area to get down to the Everglades and take an airboat tour!

The boat ride was awesome I got to see a lot of alligators close up and dolphins! Also the show at the animal sanctuary was a really nice addition.
