Eight family members from age 6 to 57 and everyone loved it! Our guide was Charlie. He was very personable and so knowledgeable about all the wildlife. Alligators were great, but my favorite was the Bald Eagle. The kids and adults loved Pork Chop the 200lb pig, seeing the birds and holding the 4 year old alligator Hollywood after the... More

My husband and I had never done an airboat ride before and while visiting a friend in FL she brought us to this tour. I can't say enough about how much fun it was. The beauty of the river and all of the wildlife were just amazing. You have a perfect view off the boat. The head phones are fun... More

Wonderful opportunity to see alligators and other wildlife in their natural environments. This was our second time visiting this location in three years and it was just as good as the first time. Very kid friendly, as we had our 21 month old daughter with us and she loved the experience. Extreme value for your dollar!!! The guides are fantastic... More

What an amazing and wonderful experience with Captain Mike on this post-cruise excursion! Quality headphones are provided. Captain Mike seemed as excited to view all the wildlife as we were, and that really made our ride more enjoyable. We saw extremely large alligators laying near cattle - one aware of, but not paying attention to the other. We saw a... More

Never did an airboat ride before but my parents have and said this was best experience ever. Loved the experience. It was so unique and I would gladly recommend to anyone, especially as a first time adventure! Got to pet alligator afterward!

Midway was an excellent experiance. They took our reservation over the phone the day after Christmas. When we got there early we enjoyed seeing "Pork Chop" the pig laying on the floor, just chilling. We saw huge snakes contained in glass boxed. The Exotic birds were cool , as were the baby allegators and turtles. It wasn't fancy but very... More
