Never done this before, so it was very interesting and I had a blast! I loved all seeing all the alligators and birds, and I even saw a few turtles! Captain John was a very good "tour guide," he was very knowledgable about everything and he was also fun. I would definitely come back here, if I'm ever in the... More

We drove for approximately one hour in two large cars towards Lake Wales. As we came closer to our destination we realised (as my family had been here before) that... More

Our guide's extensive knowledge made it very educational yet very entertaining. He had a fun personality and great sense of humor. It was... More

This was our first airboat ride and Captain John made us all feel very comfortable. His knowledge of the area enhanced our experience and we learned more about where we live. The whole experience was easy and professional from registration to the end. Glad we spent our day with you! Thanks so much and we would highly recommend this trip.

We searched for days for an airboat tour that was a personal experience(not an over-crowded, over-priced tourist attraction) in which my children would learn about and see Florida wildlife. Due to the hot temperature, we did the one hour tour. Captain John stopped the airboat numerous times, not to just see the animals, but taught my children about the animals... More

This was our first time on an airboat ride and it was awesome! Captain Carl was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw a lot of wilderness - alligators, eagles, cows, turtles, giant snails, and various other birds. We were surprised at how fast the boat went and how it seamlessly cut through the muck and vegetation with no problem. It... More
