Personal & interactive educational eco tours by airboat on the beautiful St Johns River.

Come & learn about the history of the river & the wildlife that calls it home. We don't do the typical 30 minute "boat ride" as our educational eco tours typically last 60-75 minutes.

We do have a 6 person (or $240) minimum but we can usually pair you up with others to make the minimum. We also do private group tours and evening tours (5:00 o'clock & later) for an additional $10 per person (6 person or $300 minimum) Bring your sunglasses & sunscreen and make lifelong memories with Capt. Mike!

Capt Mike took us on an excellent adventure through the Lake Washington - St John's River eco system. Despite windy and low water level conditions the trip was thoroughly enjoyable. Capt Mike gives an expert description of all the wild life in the area, not just "look at those gators". We saw plenty of wild life and lots of alligators,... More

A wonderful day on the water with Capt Mike. He was so articulate about the gators and their habits. It was a thrill to run through the tall marsh gras. We were afraid it was going to storm, but it only sprinkled, which made it even better, as it was about 2 in the afternoon.

Bull Gator Adventures is the greatest airboat ride anyone could take. It was a very educational adventure as well as seeing the wild life. Our guide knows so much about all there is out there. It was a beautiful and thrilling ride. We even got to see a gator with a pig skin in its mouth so it stayed on... More

I learned about Bull Gator Adventures from a friend who raved about their fun experience. Twice now we have driven the 140 miles to Melbourne to take friends and family out with Captain Tipton. Each time was fantastic and a learning experience. Even when the weather was not ideal for seeing alligators, Captain Tipton was able to not only show... More

Loved the airboat ride. Lots of fun just to cruise around in the boat. Captain Mike is super knowledgeable about gators and the aquatic life in the area and made it really interesting. Great way to spend the afternoon! Would do it again if back in the area!

A great time with a very knowledgeable and truly entertaining guide. Worth every minute you can spend. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.

Had never been on a airboat tour before this. Had an absolute blast flying through the swap/marsh land of Florida. A very unique habitat that being from the Midwest one doesn't get to see very often. Big thumbs up to Capt Mike!!! Very highly recommended
