What a terrific ride! Captain Bob gave a thrilling informative ride. Saw turtles, alligators, and birds and learned about plants and the Withlachoochee River. Also had a terrific lunch at the Blue Gator Restaurant which is on the River next to Captain Bob's. It was delicious. Thank you Captain Bob.

We visited Captain Bob on a family vacation around Vero Beach. This was a fantastic tour. The captain was very knowledgeable and connected to our families. He made such an effort to make a personal connection to each member of our group. We really had a great tone and all loved the tour.

Captain Bob has been doing this for over 10 years and it was evident in the ride he gave us and the areas that we explored. Such a great time! He was experienced, yet took us through many pathways in the river at a... More

We had a great ride on the airboat with Captain Bob today..we were met at the dock promptly and we were on our way. We had our daughter with us and she got a little scared at first, but he slowed down and worked his way back up to speed and by the end she was having a great time... More

This tour was more than we ever imagined an airboat ride could be. The waterways were beautiful. I felt as though I was being transported through a beautiful Florida panoramic photograph. Captain Bob made the trip interesting and informative for the adults and young adults, explaining the environment and pointing out the beautiful birds, turtles, etc. He also made the... More

You have to try this! Captain Bob will take you out on the river in his 500 hp. Airboat and stop along the way to explain the history of this beautiful place and showcase its wildlife. This is great value for the money..and a experience you will never forget

What a great way to see the rivers of Florida. You can get a little wet which is a good thing when the temp is in the 90's. Lots of fun even for a 16 year old

HOW MUCH FUN CAN YOU HAVE ON ALLIGATOR INFESTED WATERS?!!?? SO MUCH FUN. A) THANK YOU CAPTAIN SCOTT. Seriously. I've lived here for 9 months and hadn't seen an alligator yet, much to my dismay. I had company visiting this past weekend and on Monday morning we went on the 8:30 tour with CAPTAIN SCOTT, who is super friendly, knowledgeable... More
