The 4 if us had a great time. 3 of us from IL and 1 now in FL who hadn't been on an airboat yet. Captain Larry was very accommodating, nice, and knowledgeable about the alligator nursery area. Highly recommend!

I called Apalachicola Airboat Adventures and told them that we were in town all week and would like to be set up for the best time. We were set up for 10 am the next day. When we got to the dock, we found out...More

It's not the best airboat tour I've been on. I wanted to treat my husband to his first time but we only saw baby alligators and had to take the time he gave us. And the guy who booked us over the phone was rude.

Great adventure! Captain Larry answered our call and set up a time to meet at the dock. Boat was ready for us and the adventure was on! Idled out, blasted across the open water, then into the Apalachicola Estuary area nice and slow. We saw...More

Thanks again for the wonderful adventure on the river. Our granddaughter really had a fun time. Getting to see the wildlife up close was amazing.

Went on a very chilly day so didn't see alligators but lots of birds, raccoons and other assorted critters. Owner was very knowledgeable of local eco system. Found it amazing how the airboat can traverse over almost anything (logs, sand, muck, etc.).

Highly recommend having Captain Larry take you out to the estuaries. We went for an hour trip and it was well worth it. His airboat can get you to places that others can’t for a truly unique experience. He’s very knowledgeable on the ecosystem too!

Larry is a great guide/airboat driver with the kind of long experience you want for an airboat ride through marsh and swamp. My wife and I had a fantastic time -- and have made plans to return for more experiences with Larry in a few...More

We paid $40 a person . We went in afternoon during high tide. This allowed us to go back into quiet area where we saw alligators

Just read this question, too late for your March trip. We went on the airboat in early April and took the 1 - 2 hour tour. The cost was $40 per person - very reasonable! They do offer longer tours but I don't know the... More
