Awesome ride, lots of gators. Kids loved it.

A little miscommunication in the beginning but all went well considering. I was a little skeptical at first but Capitan Joe was super guy and very knowledgeable about the area... read more

This is an absolute must do, if you are visiting Central Florida! I am a local and hadn't done this before. I decided that it was time. What a rush! I was smiling ear to ear when the boat was speeding across Lake Toho with Captain Joe. I saw several gators, lots of birds, and got to hold a baby... More

This was my 2nd time with Big Toho Tours and it was fun the 2nd time around. I was with my cousins who are visiting and they enjoyed it tremendously. Captain Joe was very informative and you really know that he has knowledge about the wildlife, especially the gators. We saw about 3 big gators and numerous smaller ones during... More

A little miscommunication in the beginning but all went well considering. I was a little skeptical at first but Capitan Joe was super guy and very knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and gators. He showed us lots of gators that day. I'd suggest an afternoon ride, it was a little chilly for the gators but we still saw them... More

This was my fourth time on an airboat ride and the best one by far!! My first three with other companies were fine but we saw mostly birds and only a alligator or two. Today's trip we saw so many alligators of all sizes. Our ride also took us down Shingle Creek which is the headwaters of the Everglades. Caption... More

What an awesome experience, for myself my wife and 3 kids. We were all able to hold and take pictures holding a live alligator (they taped his mouth shut for our safety) our captain was very knowledgeable about all aspect of the swamp and animals not just the gators, we also watched deer, wild hogs, birds, incling two bald eagles....

First time doing swamps safari with an airboat, the idea was very exciting for me and the family.. Big Toho are very friendly and professional service providers, but the weather was not the right one. It was very hot, specially that when we called to book they said that they have 13:00 hrs and 15:00 hrs available which obviously was... More

I am a native Floridian and have been on many airboat rides in Central Florida over the years. This stood out as being THE WORST by far. Being directed to meet at the Shell gas station should have been my first clue of what we were in for. Once the driver arrived his introduction consisted of "how many people and... More

Booking the airboat ride was painless and quick! Captain Brent met us at the gas station and we drove FIVE MINUTES to the launch site, where we boarded a clean and comfortable airboat. Captain Brent, being a Florida native, is well versed in local wildlife and was quick to point out aligators, turtles and many species of birds. The slow... More

Alright so first off I must say that I read reviews posted below saying you meet at a gas station and then you drive 45 mins ..NOT TRUE. yes you meet at the gas station they have a counter there and then you follow the captain to the dock/water no more then 5 mins. Just though I'd clear that up... More
