We brought our friends out for their first airboat ride with Captain Troy and they had the most amazing time. We were able to see large gators everywhere and our friends were absolutely fascinated at how close we can get to them. Bring your camera because you're going to have a blast. Very reasonably priced.

Took a group of three kids to ride boat. Captain was arrogant, rude, cussed over and over, took the Lords name in vain and to top it off he disrespected some foreigners who were on the boat. He cussed at them while getting on the boat and then during the ride he was making derogatory comments about the lady to... More

In town for the weekend & stopped in to inquire about an airboat ride. Turned out that there was a boat going out in 5 mins & only 3 other passengers so decided to tag along. Cost was $25 for a 45 min ride. Our Captain made a few stops along the way to point out various plant life &... More

We call to make reservations and confirm price. We are told that it is $25 adults and $15 kids. We show up early as asked and the girl behind the counter says it will be $75... That's not what we were told. Besides that she has an attitude and lack of customer service skills. As we decided the money didn't... More

Great airboat ride! Capt. Troy was a great guide. Knowledgable about wildlife and native plants. Enjoyable and have already recommended to others.

As a family we decided to do an air boat ride with our 14& 15 years old boys. First of all the Captain said he needs a few moments to tape electrical wires on the boat. That should have been our first clue this trip wasn't going to go well. We got no instructions on safety or where the life... More

This was an excellent excursion. Captain Troy was very genuine and he loves his job. It was the height of mating season so we were not able to see any gators, but saw plenty of other wildlife. To see lots of gators, he said come out between November and March. The only thing that would have made this 5 starts... More

When I booked this trip for five family members, I thought it would be a longer and more interesting venture. I also thought it would be in Lake Okeechobee however that was not the case as the trip was up and back in a canal on the outside of the berm around the Lake. We saw one alligator and alligators...

Request Captain Troy....he is sarcastic in a fun way and "makes" the experience! The airboat is fun, seeing gators is fun too. Then he provides some stories and shows you a little bit of nature and history. Well worth the money!

This ride was totally spur the moment. Had a great time as a matter of fact I wanted to stay on it for longer....like the rest of the afternoon. We went gator hunting and saw lots of different birds. Fun, fun, fun for everyone!!!
