Capt Freddy was great!! We saw 4 alligators on our excursion! One was about 7 feet long. Highly recommend these people for your Everglade adventure.

We came down for our honeymoon and took a ride with Aaron. He was the best captain! The ride itself lasted about 40 minutes, and was full of spins, turns, fast speed, and alligators. It was obvious he knew the landscape and how to handle the boat, yet make it fun. Every question we had, he had an answer for.... More

Capt Aaron gave us an exhilarating ride at high speed, with plenty of 180 degree turns. We were a little worried that an airboat would be too fast, too rough or too wet, but Aaron asked us our preferences so we got the perfect ride for us. (We were two moms, each with a teenage daughter in tow.) Because of... More

We were 6 guests on the boat : a couple from Wisconsin, my wife, my 2 children 15 and 17 and myself. We had a great time with Aaron who is a really good boatdriver. His explanations were very interesting and informative. Before the ride Aaron showed us his 2 y-old baby aligator, which was very sweet. On the ride... More

We took our 6 year old son and my mom on this Ride. It was great! It had the right balance of thrill and serenity! Fred was great. He was patient when it came to my son's inquisitive questions and very considerate towards my moms fear of the ride. A unique experience which brought a smile to the whole family.

We did an airboat tour with Captain Fred and had a great time. It was one of the highlights of our vacation for our 5 and 7 year old kids, who didn't feel they got enough fast rides at Disney. I was expecting to putter around the water slowly, and almost cancelled for that reason, thinking that my kids would... More

The tour with Captain Fred was really a lot of fun! Fortunately it was possible to do the booking just one hour before the tour. Everything was good, we can recommend the trip.

As a lifelong Florida, I wasn't particularly interested in seeing gators, manatees, or other wildlife. Instead, we wanted a really fun ride. After all, why else strap a giant propeller to the back of a boat? This trip fit the bill. Lots of speed, fun turns (imagine a boat going sideways), and the airboat equivalent of a donut. We lucked... More
