I've taken this tour several times now but it never gets old nor boring. The alligators rarely disappoint but the beauty is greater and better than the gators. I am in awe each time I go, especially when the captain takes us down in the cypress trees. Seeing the Black-necked Stilts on their nests was interesting.

Thoroughly professional outfit. Well maintained boat, voice activated headsets provided, knowledgable 'captain'. Highly recommended. Almost impossible not to see a wide variety of land, air and swamp wildlife. Thanks guys for giving us a great time!

My mother in law had taken this airboat ride a few months ago and we decided to give it a try while visiting her in Orlando. It is not a long drive from tourist Orlando, maybe 45 minutes at the most on the 408 toll road. We checked in and wandered around the place-they have a store pig named Porkchop... More

We had a great time on our ride and seen lots of alligators. We were able to get a pretty close look at a few, in safe distances of course. With headphones and a guided tour, it was a great way to see another part of Florida. We were able to hold (if you wanted) an alligator which was the... More

One of the highlights of our Spring Break trip to Florida. Had a beautiful morning for it. We checked in early and got the front row, which was nice. Captain Ken was an excellent tour guide. Very informative. Knew a great deal about the wildlife and the area. Even stopped and took pictures of each family on the boat. The... More

This a semi tame air boat ride in the rivers of Cocoa Beach area. Boat are large 15 passenger, that are very comfortable. everyone gets a headset to listen to the operator of the boat tell you about the area and wildlife. Did some high speed maneuvers but never got wet. Very good experience.

We had an awesome airboat ride with Captain Derek. He was extremely knowledgable and friendly. We were on a private 6 person boat. We saw a lot of alligators and even a few bald eagles. The one thing we noticed was that other airboat companies didn't have headphones...and w did. Captain Derek narrated where we were going and many facts... More

They didn't give enough time for people to take a picture on most of the animals and birds they pointed out. But we did hear how the man has become a vegan and how wonderful he felt. since not eating meat. disappointed that they didn't stop long enough aor give information on the type of bird we saw.
