Captain Flame is a real "Florida Cracker" and gave us an exciting taste of old Florida! We went into Lake Hatchnehaw, through some canals and down the Kissimmee River by airboat. The airboat ride was smooth, safe and tons of fun! Lots of birds flew along with us through areas the average tourist never sees. The captain even fed some... More

My friend and I had a fantastic airboat ride with Captain Flame on the Kissimmee River! We enjoyed the nature and the Florida birds that traveled with us as we went gliding over the tall grass and lily pads! We followed our tour with lunch at Rosie's and a delicious Cuban sandwich! It was a wonderful way to spend a... More

We were very excited to see lots of nature on this airboat ride with our Captain FLAME alligators, deer, lots of birds, fish, and even COWS enjoying the big marshy and bushy land. I have already suggested my friends go. You will really love it.

What a fun way to spend my birthday with friends exploring a part of Florida we've not seen. My husband loves to fish this lake but now he saw a part of it that is not accessible by a bass boat. Captain Andy was a great captain and it's always fun to learn about the history of an area. Thanks... More

Thanks Fran, It was a pleasure showing you old Florida and some of what the Kissimmee River has to offer. In addition, I am thrilled you all had a great time riding with us especially on your birthday. I definitely didn't want any part in you not having a great time on such a special day. Come see us again,... More

We had a great Airboat tour. 5 brothers had a great time. We will remember this for a long time. It felt REAL with Captain Andy and Candy. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a genuine tour instead of some fake Disney World type tour.

Our birding group went on one of these tours and had a fantastic time! We saw many special birds including snail kites and crested caracaras! Awesome, close enough to see their beautiful colors and feathers. It was so beautiful out on the water and Captain Andy and his wife Candy couldn't have been more helpful and fun! We saw lots...
