Half of our group of 6 had never taken an airboat ride in Florida before so we chose from TripAdvisor. The ride was a little over an hour around the lake...through all kinds of swampy stuff. I especially enjoyed the ride through the reeds. Saw alligators of all different sizes and lots of birds. Our captain knew the names of... More

There were 4 in our group and it was our first time ever on airboat and holding gators. This was so enjoyable for all of us. We loved interacting with Trixie and Victor. We learned so much from Gator Bonnie. Captain Wayne was very entertaining and informative while guiding the airboat thru the lake's grassy areas. Saw 3 small gators... More

This place was fun and informative. Captain Mike was our guide, he was very knowledgeable about the whole tour with interesting facts. We held little gators and learned about how they grow and what they do. great for the family.

This is the 2nd airboat ride I have taken in Florida. The other was awesome scenery but we didn't see any wildlife. This one we saw tons of wildlife (5 gators, bald eagles and a nest, lots of different birds, and other critters). They have 3 pet little gators that you can hold, and the ride is 1 1/2 hr... More

My husband and I, daughter, son in law and grandson enjoyed a personal airboat ride on Friday, February. 13. What an enjoyable experience! We learned a lot about gators, met 2 small gators, pretty tame, held them and learned many details about gators before our ride. Our captain, Wayne, then took us for a one and a half hour ride...

Visiting the area with friends and came upon this Airboat/Nature tour and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a little adventure. You will learn lots about alligators in a 30 minute presentation where you actually get to hold and play with 2 young alligators. The airboat captain was extremely knowledgably on the plants and wildlife we encountered on the... More

A brilliant informative airboat ride on The Lake with information about the fauna flora birds and animals. Very knowledgable Capt. Fred, and afterwards a brilliant session with Victor, Trixie and crocy and Mrs Capt. Fred, who talked all about Alligators and their habits and abilities. Never thought I would enjoy cuddling an alligator. A wonderful souvenir of the trip to... More
