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

Looking for something we haven't done before...my wife is great at that! She found an Air Boat adventure for our Getaway in Florida. The facility was perfect for a "swamp" adventure (rustic as u would expect, but clean and pleasant). Had a tank of fish and baby alligators. The staff would let u hold the gators if u chose to!...

Our ride was only 20 minutes and cost $225 for 4 adults and 3 children 6 and under. Didn't see much wild life. Driver was friendly and nice. Just overpriced for what we got

Great airboat ride on the beautiful Peace river. We were looking for a ride near Bradenton and this was the closest with a proper airboat. We took our 3 children ages 5 - 11 and had the boat to ourselves, the captain was friendly and knowledgable about the river stopping for questions and spotted several alligators in the water for...

Our friend came in town for her birthday. Used this as an opportunity to finally go air-boating as excuses would always arise. We were greeted nicely. They had some small alligators in a tank with fish that the clerk at front desk let us interact with. She pulled one out and we got to hold our first gator! We then... More

We went for a family experience with our two sons - aged 19 & 16 - we all really enjoyed the trip along Peace River. It poured down with rain at one point but getting wet was all part of the fun. The guides were very friendly and it was quite an adrenalin trip on the airboat at full throttle.... More

Boat captain and staff made this trip a great experience for our family. This was our first time in an airboat and it was a real adventure. Be sure to check out the baby alligators in the shop.
