Our airboat ride with Captain David was the best. Our group consisted of a 69, 48, 16, and 12 year old. Everyone loved it. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. The ride was awesome and the customer service was excellent.

20 from our campground took your pontoon trip and they all enjoyed it! Monkey island was special and seeing the alligators being fed was interesting, the day was beautiful!

We had guests from The Netherlands and they enjoyed every bit of this tour. David explained birds, shell islands and more. We book this tour several times a year and we are never disappointed!

Adrenaline rush! We boarded the airboat early evening and cruised the beautiful Homosassa River past lovely shore built homes, past Monkey Island (yes, there are monkeys), and out to the coastal waters of the Gulf. We kept an eye out for manatees, alligators, and dolphins...More
