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.

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.
