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

Sure, my husband and I with our 6 yr old twins boys were highly apprehensive about meeting at the gas station and then following this "Captain" to the location of the airboat ride. However, that 90 minute tour that my family embarked upon was easily one of the highlights of our vacation here in Florida. The Captain was very friendly... More

We decided that we wanted to do something we've never done before as a family. We saw a sign on the road in Kissimmee about this place. We called and spoke with Brent, who explained everything with the procedure to pay and where to meet. The next day, Capt Joe met us and another family and took great care of... More
