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.

My mom and I wanted to take an airboat ride. After researching a few places, we decided on this one. We are glad we did. Our captain was so nice and knowledgeable. There were a ton of alligators, birds, and cow to look at on the water. You can just stop by and get on next available boat. It was... More

This was the second time we took the tour. Captain was friendly and explained a lot about the river and wildlife. Our grandson loved it too! Great for ages 10 to 110.

This was a very fun ride. The tour guide was friendly and informative. The boats were loud but they did give you ear muffs to use. We did get to see a lot of wildlife and a huge alligator. We did also get some alligator bites from the restaurant that were good. This was a very fun ride and if... More

Twister Airboat/Lone Cabbage Restaurant was recommended to us by the Avis car rental agent. We were looking for an airboat ride so we can't comment on the restaurant. Our guide was great. He was quite knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the area and made us feel perfectly safe while giving us the thrill of going fast over water... More

The Twister Airboat ride was a fun, short diversion as a shore excursion from my cruise ship. The airboat is a staple in the Everglades, and anyone who's ever seen one should take this tour. It's an amazing chance to skim the surface of the shallow waters, at times zipping right over plants. Our guide showed us cypress trees and... More
