Beautiful river ride. Fun for the whole family! Saw a whole bunch of gators but the view was just as nice. Also educational if you're looking for that.

We took the hour long air boat ride down the river. Captain George was personable and knowledgeable about the river and the wildlife in the area. The set up is very comfortable with two benches holding 6 people. $42 adult/$26 child. They also offer horse back tours for $35.

This was a last minute (day before) find when our planned activity did not work out. Called up and they made a boat time to fit our schedule. Had a fabulous air boat ride with Captain Colton. A great "Florida" experirence and wild life. Thanks for rescuing our day.

Took an airboat "cruise" on the Peace River. It was fun and educational. Our Captain was very informative and was very knowledgeable Even though it was Florida "cold" we still saw 3-4 gators, and lots of different birds. Just dress for the occasion

Our captain was friendly and very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the area and Florida river culture. A really fun way to explore the river and see the local wildlife up close.

Captain George was a great guide. Airboat ride was a little over an hour and went through flooded plains and saw 3 or 4 alligators and a lot more wildlife. Same day booking and very nice staff and grounds. Had a nice little petting zoo with goats, mini horses and donkeys. Well recommended.

Nothing bad to say about this trip it was excellent. The boat driver was friendly and very knowledgeable. Although we seen a couple of gators this trip would of been worth it even if we hadn't. The boats hold around six people we were lucky enough to get it to ourselves. If you want to see gators you better be... More
