Captain Matt was funny, friendly and very knowledgeable. Having grown up in the tributaries that he gives tours of, you can feel his passion and pride. He is full of interesting facts about the waterways, the wildlife, the culture and community of people who work and play in the area. Captain Matt shares his experiences in entertaining stories about growing... More

Our boat driver/guide was enthusiastic about sharing his love of the swamps. The ride itself was beautiful. We didn't get to see alligators, but considering the noise these boats make, it's hardly surprising. Still, beautiful ride, and fun was had by all.

Had a fun time at Camp Holly with my father and friend. They have really tried to improve this place since the last time we were there. Beautiful ride, viewing the swamp in it's natural beauty. Captain Matt was a great tour guide. Even though the water was very high and we saw no alligators, it was truly enjoyable and... More

Enjoyed with family and friends. First time on an airboat for all of us. We saw a couple gators swimming in the waters around the facility. Unfortunately, did not get to see any up close on the boat (high waters). Captain Earl took us around lakes and swampy areas. Had a great time. Got to charge thru high grasses. Total... More

First let me say thank you to Captain Earl for a awesome airboat tour and educational information none us knew about this morning 6/25. The little bit of time you spent with our 15yr old grandson right before the tour meant allot to him and he will remember and talk about it at school for quite awhile. I'm sure all... More

We enjoy just going out and listening to the music, and watching the air boats come and go. Cold beer! Staff is friendly. Love the haunted air boat rides in October.

3/28/16 Fun time. Captain Nick was terrific. He Did a great job maneuvering the boat for optimal viewing of wildlife. He slowed down in areas to spot the animals. Saw many alligators, various species of water fowl, and a big turtle. Very cool riding thru the overgrowth and bushes. The guy taking pictures was annoying. The displays in the fish... More

Camp Holly is a place that looks like what you'd expect for a place where you can fish and catch an airboat. Captain Earl was our airboat captain and was a informative, fun, and exciting tour guide. We were able to see multiple alligators and had some exciting twists and turns through the St. John's marsh. If you've ever wanted... More

The air boat ride was excellent; my beef is holding two alligators in tepid, concrete pools just to amuse Yankees. It is deplorable. Just smacks of the old, tired roadside zoos that abused animals for profit.
