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.

Best bargain around. Get the coupon off their website for extra savings. The ride was exciting. Lots of birds and even a couple alligators. We've been on others but this is the best.

We chose this airboat ride as recommended by friends who live in Orlando. Great recommendation. It is 45min drive from Orlando en route to Cocoa Beach, right next to the road at The Lone Cabbage Fish Camp. We arrived in the morning and bought the ticket for the next trip in 10 mins. There were 6 people on the boat.... More

My brother and I went for an airboat ride here while on an excursion from a NCL cruise. Having never done it before, we were really looking forward to it. They did not disappoint. We had a great time and the staff were great. The gator bites were delicious too.
