Went here with Dolphin Tours then onto Kennedy Space Centre. Exhilarating ride on the air boat doing up to 45 mph with the back swinging out on occasions. Our pilot/driver was most informative and friendly and we saw plenty of alligators - some quite big- as well as loads of different wild water birds; wild cattle etc'. Kids and grandparents... More

Wanted to do an airboat ride while in the area, so decided to try the half hour ride at Twister Airboat rides (on April 4). We had two teens, a toddler, and a preschooler with three adults. We had a great time. Loved the speed! Half hour was just right for the little kids, but the rest of us could... More

This was fun, ear head phones were provided for your convenience and we did see 3 gators sunbathing. Great ride. Tips were recommended for the driver, which was worth it.

We took a 30 minute ride and enjoyed it immensely. We got a good look at a few dozen alligators, cattle and lots of birds. The ride was fast and smooth and our a Captain was very informative.

We took the 30 minute ride and had a good time! We saw several gators, lots of birds, and other animals. I would definitely ride twister airboat rides again.

Had friends in town from Taiwan and they wanted to do an airboat rides. I had previously been and taken people on the Twister trips 5 times and they were usually acceptable. I feel these trips have really gone downhill over the years. The boat driver we had the day we went out seemed not to really care to be... More

Took the family on this airboat ride. We found several alligators and got really, really close - close enough that one flipped it's tail and splashed us! Loved it!

I booked a 90 minute 'Lil Twister airboat tour mostly with my husband in mind, but it quickly became one of the highlights of our trip, not only for my husband, but for myself and our two teenage daughters as well! Captain Chad was beyond amazing! He had come in on his day off to do our tour, which was... More

A real feel for Florida gliding through the grassy section of St johns river. The captain was funny, knowledgable and great at manoeuvring us around to get the perfect angles for photos. Lots and lots of animals, from snakes and birds to "water cows" and most importantly gators, to see. An amazing day out.
