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.

Had an appt at 2 but captain Freddy was nice enough to wait until 2:30 since we had a delay. Every one else already mentioned the personal tour, fun, 90 mins long. We didn't see a lot of alligators like others have mentioned but maybe it's the time of year or time of day. Captain Freddy didn't give up and... More

Having an airboat ride was one of our "must do" activities in Florida and Capt Johnny was a highly recommended. Had a great time with he and Capt Freddy, saw massive amount of gators and wildlife. Liked the personal, small experience, great time and highly recommend.

Captain Lonnie is who took us out for the air boat ride. We had 4 adults; the boat holds 6, plus the captain, so we had lots of room. Lonnie gave us ear muffs to wear, which helped alot. The airboat goes pretty fast so even though it was a warmer day when we were there, it still got cold,... More

Had a wonderful outing with Captain Johnny Long. 90 minutes of pure fun. Captain Johnny is the best. Great wildlife and humor. It was our second time, we look forward to returning again. This is a must do adventure.

Booked a trip for late December 2012. The other group scheduled for our boat never showed up so it was just me, my daughter, and Cpt Freddy....a custom personal tour on the cheap! He was a real charming character who explained a lot about everything we saw out there. My daughter said "Even more fun than I expected!" and I... More

We rode Old Fashioned Airboats in 2007 and decided to use them again when we traveled with our youngest daughter to Florida. It was her first trip there. Great time, lots of gators and a knowledgeable and entertaining captain. Good value for the price. We were not able to land as the water was still high from a tropical storm... More
