We knew about meeting at the liquor store, or Gas station as it is now. We knew about following the hand drawn map to the site which is about 40 minutes away so none of that was an issue. We quite liked the drive to the boat launch site as it was off the beaten track. There were four of... More

This was the best adventure we had on our entire trip to Kissimmee...and we adventured! Captain Joe was very informative of the swamps and gave us a fun afternoon. We bypassed using the Groupon and did the 90 minute tour. The boat was the perfect size for our family (4 adults and 2 kids). We paid at the Shell station... More

I awoke the morning of our tour, my birthday,very ill. Knowing id have to eat the cancellation fee, and completely fine with that, I tried to call Taho to be polite and let them know not to expect us. I got yelled at. I was told I was rude for canceling and he was charging me $50 for an already... More

So, we met Cap'n Joe at their international headquarters at Bronson's liquor store. We followed Cap'n Joe to the boat launch, about 30 mins away in the middle of nowhere. We joked because it seemed a little sketch, and we were sure we'd seen a horror movie start out just like this, but it turned out to be super fun!... More

I found a groupon.....and my experience began with this company! After calling several times with no answer, I finally left a message. No return call. I called on a Monday morning, talked to someone, I explained I had a groupon and wanted to make a reservation for later in the week. He said any day was good at 11. I... More

It was very different than most tours I have ever been on! First we met a guy in a liquor store who... More

Not your usual airboat tour as quite strange paying in a liquor store. Also we had to then travel another 40mins to get to the boat ramp. After the initial concerns the trip and our captain Joe was really enjoyable. We got to see plenty of wildlife and also some alligators in their natural habitat. Our captain Joe, was informative...

When trying to figure out payment details, which would have been too easy if explained correctly, the man in the liquor store became rude and hostile. He kicked us out. Then the company charged us for "cancelling". How can you cancel if you're told you cant ride?
