We enjoyed the airboat trip immensely! My children were so excited to hold Trixie and Victor. Captain Wayne and Bonnie were very knowledgeable and super friendly. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!

This was sort of spur of the moment for us. Wanted to do an airboat ride without having to drive a huge distance. (already done enough of that on the trip) We were on the west side of Kissimmee so this tour on Lake Hamilton was perfect. It was just our party of three for the hour long ride. Capt... More

Been on a few different air boat rides in Florida, and really loved this one as it was so much more personal. Captain Fred and Bonnie greeted us offering coffee and doughnuts and then went out on porch and met the baby alligators, which was an amazing experience got some great photos. The off for the ride which was fabulous... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked the tour to help celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary. I can honestly say that we weren't disappointed. Both Bonnie and Captain Wayne were very welcoming. Bonnie's knowledge of alligators was unbelievable. We learnt so much and she kept all our family of 2 adults, 3 teenagers and a 7 year old, entertained... More

We took the tour on August 14th and had a great time. We arrived early (6 of us about an hour early) and were taken out right away. We saw a Bald Eagle and a Marsh Rabbit...I was not aware rabbits lived in the marsh but they do. After the fantastic tour we were greeted a the dock by Bonnie... More

We took my 13 year old great nephew while he was visiting from up north. The adults enjoyed the tour as much as he did! Capt. Wayne is knowledgeable and funny. Bonnie spent time with us before and after the airboat ride talking about gators. Our 13 year old loved holding Trixie and Victor! You won't be disappointed when you... More

Someone recommended this place to us... Now it's our turn to recommend this great airboat tour !!! Only a short drive from Orlando or Kissimmee. Really worth it !! Capt. Wayne and Bonnie are so nice !! You can see that they like kids and they take time to answer their questions. We enjoyed the baby gators. Where else can... More

We all had a fabulous time. Capt Wayne and Bonnie are very knowledgable. We had searched for a family run boat tour and this was 5mins from where we were staying in Haines City. It was well worth the money and it was great that it was just our party on the boat. Got to hold a baby alligator. Can... More

This experience is the diametric opposite of all things Disney. It's not grand, it's simple and it's so real. Simple time on an airboat is fun on its own, add in Capt Wayne and it's fun and interactive. See some real live gators and then handle some and it's not only the kids who are happy. I think good value... More

We searched for a decent airboat tour in Florida and we luckily managed to find this one via Trip Advisor. This has been one of the best highlights of our holiday so far (and we've had ALOT of highlights!). The guides were very friendly, very informative and you can tell instantly that they are passionate and dedicated to what they... More
