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

Our trip was in the hot summer, but it was still terrific. We saw lots of birds, dozens of baby alligators and even a large gator in the deeper waters. The ride was awesome. Speeding through the marshlands was something that we had never experienced before. Captain Andy was a terrific and knowledgeable pilot and quite funny too. It was... More

This is a joyride in nature's own playground. No crowds, just you and 3 or 4 others and Capt. Andy. Perfect for families! It's fun, educational and delightful, both thrilling and relaxing. We wanted to go right back out again after our adventure but, alas, the next tour was already booked. This is at the top of our list of... More

Great time on the water with Captain Flame. He is very knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend to anyone looking for something different to do on the water.

Looking at the spectacular set of reviews I'm not sure what I can add so I'll keep it brief. We wanted to try something different on an otherwise theme park orientated holiday, I found this via Trip Advisor and knew my partner wanted to try it so booked us in at short notice and whizzed across to Camp Mack, a...

Capt Andy gave us an excellent tour, we went on the 9am early morning one. The booking process was easy and friendly, talking to Candy on the phone gave us an idea of what to expect. Nothing is too much trouble for these people. The tour was such a brilliant diversion from the other things we had done on our... More

We were originally in Florida to visit Disney world and universal studios when we came across the idea to do a airboat tour. We were so glad we did, the airboat tour was amazing! Captain Flame is great! Not only is it beautiful but he gives you a history of the area! He knows his way around and takes you... More
