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

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

We chose a one hour tour and it went by quickly. We got a littler info from our captain, but not an overwhelming amount. We saw no alligators as we were told they would appear in the summer months. We stopped to see some raccoons hanging in the trees. He got so close you could almost touch them. You basically... More

We arrived without a reservation and this was the last of the airboat tours we checked out. I'm glad we waited, this company were by far the most friendly and informative before the tour and during it. Opportunity to hold baby gators and the story of their rescue from the farm made me warm to these strange creatures. Our tour... More

We had a great time on this visit. It was so much fun traveling across the water in the air boat. Traveling in the mangrove swamp was beautiful. Our trip only included the two of us. Captain B was wonderful and so full on knowledge that he shared. Don't miss this one!!
