Well, it was colder than planned (but not their fault, certainly) and we saw only one gator (again, not their fault). However, from the onset, there was a problem. The reservation was made a day in advance and we were told to be there early and wait at the river side. We arrived at least 45 minutes early and about... More

Went with Captain Johnny and he knows his stuff. Our trip was great, John showed us different kinds of wildlife. He is knowledgeable on the history of the area. He treated everyone great took a group photo for us, he would stop and tell us about how gators and other wildlife live and their habits. The boat ride is amazing... More

We had a fantastic time! Started off looking at wildlife, stopped a couple times to hear about the area, and enjoy the serenity and beauty. After seeing numerous gators (and cows!), we gained some speed on the ride back, and had some fun with the boat.

Capt Freddy is very knowledgeable and makes sure of a fun time. Lots of wildlife and a stop in a cypress swamp where Capt explains the whole... More

Old Fashioned Airboats was an awesome tour! I definitely recommend this outfit for your airboat ride. If you're in central Florida and want to have a one of a kind experience, give these guys a call. They were the best price with the longest tour which was 90 minutes. We went on a day when the river was extremely swollen... More

Do not hesitate to book with this company! Captain Johnny was awesome. He was personable, knowledgeable and fun! We saw lots of wildlife and gators. The river water level was up which helped our experience as well. Can't wait to do it again on our next trip to Florida.
