It was great fun. After Disneyworld it was a real breath of fresh air. My family drove down and we managed to catch the last tour of the day. The tour guide was real friendly and does his best to show you some gators around the wetlands. Theres also plenty of cows. The lone cabbage is cool too. It's an... More

After finally finding the proper name of this tour (booked and prepaid to Carnival Cruises who gives neither the name nor address of this tour), I can write about it. The airboat ride itself was great, organized, on time and delivered the thrills promised. We also got a soft drink after to wash down some cooked alligator tail. This we... More

Took the fam on an RCL cruise out of Baltimore and since I've always wanted to ride on an airboat, I booked this excursion for us. It took about 30 minutes to get there from Port Canaveral. The fish camp looks like a little shack and is very popular to bikers, but for the airboat tour we didn't get to... More

I have been to Twister 4 times & each time is just a great experience. The guides are very personable & knowledgeable. They answer many questions. They have great interaction skills with everyone on the boat. It was highly recommended to me & I have never been disappointed.

My kids ages 10 and 4 took the hour ride - they LOVED it! The captain was awesome. They got to see gators, wildlife, mangroves - just Florida wildlife untouched by development. It was a perfect day! We ended the tour with lunch at Lone Cabbage. Just a low-key, day of family fun in Florida. Ride was fast but not... More

In addition to the attractions, make time for a little Florida wildlife and fun. This is a great way to experience another side of Florida and see some gators. The airboat Captains are knowledgable about the area and wildlife. This is a must do for all ages. If time allows, schedule the 60 or 90 minute tour.

I had been wanting to ride an airboat for a while and the opportunity presented itself when my daughter and Grandkids (ages 7 and 11) came to visit my wife and I from The Woodlands, Texas. After doing some research on prices, locations, and amenities Twister Airboat rides was the only way to go. Prices were by reasonable, boats seemed... More

We have taken an air boat ride at Twister now three times and my kids love it (11 and 13 year olds). The guides are knowledgeable and humorous. The tour almost changes each time, as we have done it in different seasons. Alligators are no big deal to us, as residents of Florida, but if you want to see alligators,... More

What a fantastic time we had. The captain was knowledgeable and entertaining. He found at least 20+ alligators and cattle crossing the river. I have been on a few airboat rides but this was one of the best.
