This was epic! A boyhood dream realised and bald eagles as well! We had a 90 minute airboat ride with Capt Flame and it felt like it was over in 5! All I know is that I had the biggest grin on my face the whole time. We saw raptors, deer, various egrets/herons and a few little alligators! This really... More

Wow! What a ride with Captain Flame! Our family had an awesome time. The 10 and 7 years old enjoyed it as much as the adults. We didn't see any alligators but had an excellent time nevertheless. The scenery was beautiful, many birds, cows and even baby deer! A definite must go and it worth every penny. Thanks guys for... More

90 minute airboat ride, lots of wildlife to see including Bald Eagles, fish and a deer who tried to join us in our boat! It's was too hot to spot any Gator's but this didn't detract at all from the visit. Absolutely beautiful scenery, would highly recommend for a family half day trip.

My wife and I had a great time with Captain Flame and Captain Andy and Candy. Unfortunately didn't get to see any gators but that's expected this time of year due to the heat. Still some great sights and a lot of fun to be had whipping around the mid Florida low lands. Definitely worth the drive.

This summer my family and I visited Florida to do all the theme parks with our young children and grandparents. One day we decided to take a break from the theme parks to do an airboat tour. What an excellent decision!!!! The couple who ran the tours were extremely friendly and they have been born and bread in the area,... More

We got to Camp Mack a little early and walked around, an interesting spot on the canal between Lake Hatcineha and Lake Kissimmee there is a little outdoor diner a little general store and interesting people all over the place. The tour office was open but they were cleaning up from the day before. They were very nice and told... More

There may be less expensive trips, but I doubt they are as good. Exceeded expectations Capt. Flame prefaced our trip by saying he grew up in and around the lakes and waterways we were about to travel upon, and it quickly became apparent that he had. Was quite knowledgeable about the area and quite adept at handling the airboat on/over... More

This is a must see adventure, we had the pleasure of going out with Captain Flame and Jack. Their family has been on this river since The 1940's. jack was a wealth of information about the changes that have gone on and the family heritage. Captain flame explained all the wild life and showed us everything. I can't wait until... More

If you are going to Florida (we were based at Universal), this is a great day out to experience a real piece of Florida. After a lovely welcome we (6 of us) boarded the river boat with Captain Andy and took a tour down the river and onto the Lake. Andy stopped at various locations to give us information on... More
