My family and I had gone on an airboat ride a few years ago somewhere else and it was nothing special. We were hesitant to go on another but this place is truly something special. While waiting, we got to hold an alligator, and really just talk to the guy who was teaching us about the gators. When our captain... More

Friendly and courteous reservationist, Crystal and the knowledge and expertise of Captain Chris made this airboat experience an afternoon well spent. I would recommend the one hour tour as half hour is just not enough. Look for either a $10 off couples coupon or receive a mini alligator head trophy ($12.95). Although there are a plethura of airboat tour companies... More

Nothing compares to the experience that Craig Daniels Jr. Gives you when he's your captain. It isn't worth it unless he's your captain! The ride was informative about our history in Florida and not to mention you'll get the ride of your life. #FloridaCracker

My wife and I had been on airboat tours in Florida before. The staff and captain were perfectly friendly and professional but it was quickly evident our captain was not very experienced. Also, the area they have available for the airboat ride is literally an airboat highway. I'm not kidding....there is regular steady traffic and you have to slow down... More

My mom and I had Captain Craig Daniels today at the 9 am (1 hour) Everglade tour. We had a wonderful time! The Captain was nice, funny, and informative. He took us for a thrilling ride through the mangroves where we got to see an alligator, fox swirl, raccoon's, different birds and the beautiful habitat that they live in. I... More

This is our second time to Totch's for the boat tour. We came with our 12 year old son and 15 year old daughter and they both enjoyed the tour. We did the 1 hour tour and since the airboat only holds 6 we got to enjoy the experience by ourselves. Although the gators aren't really out this time of... More

My husband and I took our two boys (10 & 7) on the 90 minutes private tour. It was so much fun and very informative. The time flew by with a stop at a small private island, a thrilling ride through the Mangrove tunnels and our captain even let the boys drive the boat! Once the airboat tour was finished,... More

We took a one hour tour, room for 6 plus the captain and it felt like time passed quickly. My parents, husband, kids (age 7 and 9) and I all loved it! Boat goes slow and fast during the tour, through the mangroves and in larger open water spaces. We saw little raccoons very close up, they were right above... More
