About this activity

Mangroves, grasslands, swamps, alligators - and of course airboat tours - we must be in the Everglades!

Captain Jack's Airboat Tours are a great way to experience that iconic way to really explore the incredible Everglades of Florida. They are an amazing landscape within the USA, and so unique, it certainly will create memories for the kids they won't be forgetting in a long time!

Captain Jack's Airboat Tours offers a number of experiences so you can choose what is best for your family - perhaps it's them all! 

How about we start with the mangroves? The Mangrove Airboat Tour let's you go on a thrilling adventure through the twisting mangrove tunnels on their signature Everglades airboat experience. 

Not only does the mangrove tour give you about an hour of fun on the water. Pretty cool! Just feel the wind in your face as you zip through the tunnels, and past unique plants and animals. The captain might even entertain you with stories of history, fun, and folklore along your way!

Maybe check out the Grassland Airboat Tour Combo where you get to explore TWO exciting ecosystems where you might just spot some alligators in their natural environment. Keep an eye out - they might be hard to spot! Good luck!

You can take to the land with the Swamp Buggy Tour Combo with 30 minutes of cypress forest exploration. You might even see a Manatee! Amazing!

These tours can also get you FREE admission to the animal sanctuary which is home to panthers, turtles, tigers, snakes, otters, crocodiles and yes, over 100 alligators. You are in Florida after all!

So why not take the family on a day out with a difference with these great tours, and explore the heart of one of the most incredible places in the USA!
