Very interesting overview of gators and their habits given by the young man at the start. I think early morning would be better if you were thinking if going. Not too hot... More

We a family of 7, with 3 younger children had a fantastic time. Captain Wayne knew everything about the animals, we even saw 2 bald eagles nesting and held the smaller gators. Coming from UK this was something we had never seen before. Would highly recommend to holiday makers. Got a free calender photo too which was a nice touch.

The young man who talked about the alligators was well versed and could answer any question we had. I would highly recommend any one... More

We have taken other airboat rides in Central Florida, but we decided to take our friend from Pennsylvania on this one. The baby alligators were so cute and I surprised myself by holding both of them! We did not see any gators out in the wild because of the extreme heat, but so many gorgeous birds and wild flowers, even... More

My family and I visited on Friday, June 5, and the kiddos got to hold the gators, which was very cool and neat. The ride was fun as we saw all kinds of wildlife and learned a little about them as well in the process. Being able to see mother nature up close and see some cool birds and flowers... More

We had a good time at Fred's. Got to hold a couple gators and the air boat was lots of fun as well. Good people! I would recommend it for people of any age that wants to get close to gators.

We thouroughly enjoyed our visit to Captain Fred's airboat tours. We saw lots of different wildlife which Captain Fred told us a little bit about, it was both exciting and educational and our 2 boys 6 & 9 both really enjoyed it. It was also great meeting their pet alligators afterwards and learning all about them. I would highly recommend... More
