EVERGLADES CITY, Fla. (July 18, 2017) – To recognize student academic achievement, Captain Jack’s Airboat Tours and Wooten’s Everglades Airboat Tours are offering a complimentary mangrove or grassland airboat ride through the Florida Everglades to students who earned an A or B Honor Roll report card for the previous school year, redeemable July 18 through August 31, 2017. Students in grades K-12 are asked to present their report card at the ticket office at either location to receive their free tour ticket with the purchase of one regular-priced adult tour ticket. Students will also receive free admittance to an animal sanctuary with live alligator show. Only grade reports earned during the 2016-2017 school year will be honored. Limit 2 students per adult ticket.

“An airboat ride in the Everglades is a unique reward for working hard and earning good grades. It’s also an activity that families can enjoy together while learning more about our native environment,” said Aashish Patel, owner and operator of Captain Jack’s Airboat Tours. “By offering a reward program for students who achieve good grades, and maybe even the chance to hold a baby alligator, we hope to motivate kids to keep up the great work.”
