Did the hour tour with Capt Bruce and the ride was excellent. Has we were riding he was showing us the points of interest in the area and explaining their significance. He stopped at all the areas where the wildlife was found and allowed us to view and take plenty of pictures. I would highly recommend this ride to anybody... More

We were visiting the area for Daytona Bike week and wanted an airboat tour. We decided on Capt Bruce because of the convenient location and also his willingness to accommodate our schedule. The Jolly Gator Fish Camp is fantastic for a bite to eat and a drink before or after the tour. Capt Bruce pulled the airboat up right on... More

We made a reservation. Showed up a few minutes before, and Captain Bruce got us up and going. Sunny and 83 today. It was GATORS GALORE!!!! The birds were sensational. Cruising along the open water was exhilarating and a 360 spin was plain old awesome!!!! History about the land, the St John's River, the ranch, gator hunting, etc, was shared... More

Thanks Captain Bruce for a wonderful airboat ride! We took some amazing photos of pink spoonbills, elegant egrets and gators big and small on our hour long tour followed by a fabulous meal at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp.

I have taken 3 different airboat rides from separate companies, this was by far the best! We went in December as family was visiting and unfortunately due to our variable schedule we were not able to plan ahead. I called Central Florida Boat Tours at the last minute and explained the situation and the captain was very understanding and worked... More

We are locals and host friends and family from all over the country. I have taken 3 groups out with Capt Bruce and each time, following the ride, our friends/family said that they were apprehensive as they did not know what to expect. After the tour they all said it was one of the highlights of their visit. Capt Bruce... More

The 1+ hour tour was exactly that - over an hour. Fantastic experience with lots of aligaitors and birds to see of all shapes and sizes. Its a one man band and the guide is pationate about the swamp, really interested in giving folks a great time with an exillerating ride whilst respecting the wild life. You should really book...

WARNING! When reading reviews about airboat tours keep in mind most companies do not offer half hour airboat rides and only offer 90 minute tours. Naturally if you spend over one hour on a boat you will have a better expierence to write a review than someone who took a half hour ride. This company offers two different tours. Airboat... More

Well it started out good, one of our guys was 10 minutes late getting there. Good commentary and views of the river. But then the boat ign. quit and left us stranded. Capt called for help and two boats showed up to take us back. We were heading back but had one more site to see. Depends on how you... More
