Great tour guide, saw more alligators than we could count as well as multiple species of birds. Loved the power and noise of the airboat. I've been on all... More

Capt Ken gave us a great trip. We saw lots of wildlife including aligators. The best part was that it was wheelchair accessible from the dock. I was able to drive my chair on board then transfer on to one of the boat seats (benches). No seat belts but I felt pretty stable having someone on both sides of me.

Captain Lindsey was fantastic, we definitely hit a home run. We opted for the private boat tour, which was kid friendly (1.5, 3.5, 5, 7 & 11) and very informative (Captain Lindsey is a 35 year veteran of the Florida DNR). Saw dozens of gators plus turtles and several different types of birds. There are many tours to choose from,... More

Our experience with Marsh Beast Airboat Tours was beyond excellent. Our tour guide, Kenny was very knowledgeable, friendly and lots of fun. He took us to many different parts of the marsh and showed us many species of birds, turtles, vegetation and flowers. We saw a ton of alligators and even a baby one! It was exciting, and we always...

Captain Kenny was very knowledgeable and seemed determined to part ways with all other boats in order to get eyes on some gators! It was a cloudy day so be prepared with a longsleeve!

Captain Kenny was the best! He was knowledgeable on gators, vegetation, and wildlife we saw on our excursion. Captain Kenny also took the time to stop the boat for us to get good pictures of the gators. We would recommend the Marsh Beast Airboats as a must do when visiting Vero. Make sure to get Captain Kenny! We can't wait... More

What a fun day trip for our family. Captain Kenny is a great guide and taught us all about this little piece of wildlife heaven. Kenny is very knowledgeable about all of the birds, gators and vegetation. We even got to see baby alligators! We will definitely go again later in the day as he said we would see more... More

This was our third tour with Marsh Beast and each was better than the last. We had Captain Lindsey for this tour and he was great!! We had two young grandsons with us this trip and he answered all their questions with patience, knowledge and humor. I would never book with any other tour company when we have experienced the...
