This ride was the Highlight of our holiday. The personal attention, flexibility, wildlife and knowledge we shared was amazing. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this trip to anyone. We think this was a lifetime memory. Very Cool.

My husband and myself did the night time bow fish and had the best time with Cap'n Josh. He is very knowledgable about all the species of fish and birds we saw, and gave us ample oppurtunities for many shots at fish. When your arms are sore after 4 hours of shooting, you know its been a good night! Our... More

We had a great time! This was our first time on an airboat. Josh is an awesome tour guide! We did get to see a lot of wildlife as well as some big alligators! Next time we're going to do night fishing with Josh. I highly recommend this to everyone, it is a great experience!

Wow! What an amazing airboat ride we had! Captain Josh is the best! He is extremely safety conscious and his knowledge of the river, local wildlife and vegetation is impressive. We saw numerous birds, some alligators, a turtle, a large Gar Fish and beautiful flowers among other things. Oh, can't forget the Indian mound - so interesting! He goes out... More

My family of 5 just visited the Daytona Beach, Florida area for a week and booked a tour with Captain Josh, owner and operator of Airboat and Bator Charters. This was by far the highlight of our trip. He is very professional and his knowledge of the area and wildlife is amazing. We saw bald eagles, turtles, lots of BIG... More

This is our third time riding with Captain Josh on his Airboat and we booked another bow fishing trip with him for later in the... More

We had a great time with captain Josh! We saw a manatee, a few gators, lots and lots and lots of birds, some cows (not sea cows, the real deal, which we were not expecting!) and raccoons. I was a little worried about bringing the kids on some else's boat without even knowing him. Our kids are 4-7 years old... More

Capatin Joshua took me and my sisters and our 85 year old mother on a great ride around the St Johns river. The ride lasted a full 2hrs and covered about 23 miles. We saw several gators and found a school of manatees, although they did not surface. Joshua was very knowledgeable about the area and wild life and stopped... More
