Bonnie was great and patient with the kids while showing us the small gators. She definitely shows her passion for educating people about gators. Wayne is professional and fun with the boat tour. He knows his way around the lake and we saw a family of Bald Eagles. Thanks Bonnie and Wayne. Ryan and family.

This is a very friendly and highly knowledgeable family run business based on the shore of Lake Hamilton, just off Highway 27. Here you learn all about Gators and even get to hold some before you head out onto the lake with Capt. Wayne at the controls of the airboat. Capt. Wayne's enthusiasm for, and love of this hauntingly beautiful... More

My family all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the time spent on shore holding the baby Gators. Wayne and Bonnie were super friendly and knew what they were talking about. Would definitely recommend the tour.

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

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 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.
