We are the "Best" - focusing on Quality, Not quantity!

“The Original” Everglades City Airboat Tours, Inc. is a small Mom & Pop business. It is owned and operated by Captain Bruce Minton (a 3rd generation Everglades City guide) and his family. His family (Captain Doug House) were the proprietors of the very first Everglades City Airboat Tour company (est. 1982) in Everglades City, Florida. Captain Bruce worked with Captain Doug for over 27 years. After Captain Doug retired in 2007 and watching the local tour companies become more and more ”Commercialized”, Captain Bruce determined it was time to start a new Everglades Airboat Tour that was more “Personalized” like in the early days.
