Glide thru the grassy marsh of the ST. Johns River & Lake Poinsett at speeds of up to 45 M.P.H. As the boat slows down to an idle you will have several photo opportunities to take photos of our local wildlife, such as alligators, eagles, and several species of wading birds by the hundreds, and visit a natural cypress swamp.

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.

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.

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
