Booked a 45 minute airboat tour with Wildlands Wetlands Safari Cruises as the time frame suited our itinerary better than the other Wetlands Cruise company who depart from the same area. I think Wildlands is quite a new company as we arrived (a little early) to find locked gates with an advertising banner and saw a gazebo in the distance so we were a little confused, however it wasn't long before our guide appeared returning from another cruise. We had not been on an airboat before and was surprised how smooth it was. Had an enjoyable cruise although the airboat was loud and we had to wear headphones. The guide had to stop the boat to chat to us but was very informative and we disturbed a huge croc literally a metre or two from the boat which was very exciting. At $195 each, it was an expensive option but within keeping with other airboats tours we've seen so probably on par. Although we came very close and personal with the wildlife I feel we may have seen just as much and had more commentary on one of the cheaper conventional boat cruises. Still it was something a little different and you did feel like you were in the Florida Keys

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your tour with us. It is much appreciated and we are glad you enjoyed it. We have been operating for a number of years but prefer to keep our footprint on the area to a minimum to preserve the surrounding environment. The hearing protection ear muffs are a survey requirement for the airboats when in motion as the fan motor does generate a bit of noise but as you said, the guide will take every opportunity to provide commentary during the tour. We also offer river cruises in conventional boats too but the airboat is a special experience as it can access areas of the wetlands where other vessels cannot go. All the best and we hope to see you again one day.

Awesome, amazing, fabulous tour. This stuff can't be scripted. Can't believe the stuff we saw. Crocodiles(of course), Jabiru catches a Barramundi, birds defending against larger birds. All in an hour and a half. And the guide, Josh, what an asset he is.

Brilliant hour ( 4.30-5.30) packed with sightings of so many massive crocs, beautiful Jabiru’s, white breasted eagles, wedge-tails and superb water lilies and lotus flowers. Josh our guide was so interesting sharing his broad knowledge of the indigenous culture, flora and fauna ( especially Crocs!). We had the cruise to ourselves in late August 2021 and pitied the poor people packed into the Wetlands boat which is the other cruise company that advertises heavily. Do yourself a favour and go with WildLands instead!

The 45 minute airboat safari with Josh was amazing! Josh was friendly and passionate about his job. We saw Jabiru, crocs and wild pigs along with a huge range of bird life while gliding over water lilies enjoying the lovely breeze. A fantastic experience 😃
