We were referred to this place from another boat tour guide. This is a nice half-hour ride through the marshes. We did not see one alligator, but many cows (who knew)? This ride is loud and the sun is bright. Recommend using the hearing protection provided and wearing sunglasses. My boys had a good time and the driver was cordial.

We not only enjoyed the 30 minute air boat ride but we saw alligators, different birds & even water buffalo! The captain explained things as we went along, slowed down for every site to give us information. We booked this excursion on our own leaving from the cruise ship docked at Port Canaveral. The cab ride was over $50 but... More

Last year, I recommended Twister Airboat Rides (based on internet reviews) to two sets of guests on two different occasions. Both families were staying at my place to visit Universal Studios and Kennedy Space Center. Both families came back with very positive reviews of their experience. When friends from Japan stayed at my place 6 months later, I knew that... More

Just done a 30 min airboat ride with Lone Cabbage Twister Airboats - absolutely fantastic ! Watching the alligators swimming around before you even get in the boat - then speed through the river with a great captain who knows everything there is to know about the surroundings. Saw plenty of Gators including some big males, cows, horses, herons, eagles... More

Please see my review under "Lone Cabbage." I highly recommend this activity! I have an eleven year old and a thirteen year old... We all loved it.

Simply amazing!!! A very small business but the driver that took us out knew the area like the back of his hand and knew exactly where to take us to see alligators. We took our 6 year old daughter who also loved it. If I came back to Florida I'd use them again.

Short ride to Twisters Boat rides easy to find. Price was okay for the excursion. While waiting for the excursion saw all kind of Alligators trying to keep cool like us under the bridge. While out we saw a gator right beside our boat glad I was in the middle not on the end. The guide was very informative about... More

We did this right after some big rain storms and there was so much water that the alligators were hiding. However we saw lots of beautiful birds. Our guide was great and took advantage of the high water level. The food at the landing was decent. I'd definitely do this again. Gators or not!

Great place! Friendly open and reasonably priced. For someone who gets a lot of anxiety I still felt totally safe on the airboat. The guide was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job showing us the beautiful river and all the wildlife.
