We take you on a airboat adventure thru the vast swamps and marshes of the Kissimmee River and Dead River. We go where only a 6 passanger airboat would dare go. Come visit and see for yourself the true Florida. Our USCG Licensed Master Captains are NATIVE FLORIDIANS, who were born and raised in the swamp! We know all the good spots to visit, to see all wildlife. The headwaters of the Everglades have to offer! Call for your reservation today. « less

I'm a nearby local resident, and recently had out of town visitors who form a Christian barbershop-like quartet, called "Cuarteto Shalom", they wanted to sample a Native Florida Attraction! We had the privilege to hire Captain Carl for our airboat tour of the beautiful glades and surrounding nature! He expertly guided us throughout land and water, and when we came... More

From the time we pulled up they were very friendly. Up front with what to expect and patient. We traveled two hours to enjoy this ride and were a few minutes late. We phoned ahead and they said no problem, the boat would leave as soon as we got there. Captain John was so friendly and never short on words,... More

Our family were truly astonished at how good our time was with Captain Carl. Right from the off we were made to feel extremely welcome. The Captain struck a great rapport with us all and in particular with our youngest of 10. We were very impressed by the Captain's responsible judgement in the face of bad weather and even more...

..... that is what I loved the most. Captain John took us to areas of Florida where we couldn't see any reminders of life as we knew it. Captain John was knowledgeable and easy going. First time on an airboat and had FUN..... I will be back for another ride!! Thanks Captain John! !

My family absolutely loved the Extreme night tour with Captain John. It was the highlight of our trip to Florida. It was great fun for all of us, our 14 year old boys, and 20ish year old girls as well. Captain John was a wealth of information and lots of fun. We chased hogs around, saw lots of gators and...

We have been on this tour several times, and ALWAYS go back to Capt. Carl Johnson. He is a warmly friendly man with the most knowledge of this area that we have visited.

I've been on the 20 seater airboats that are available at other locations / businesses and what Captain John and Captain Carl have here is 10 times better. Trust me on that!! The lake is beautiful and you lose track of what marsh, swamp, wetland your touring one minute to the next. Hard to believe we covered so many miles... More

Captain John was wonderful! This company makes you feel like one of the family the moment you show up. Friendly and warm, you feel like you're being greeted by old friends. Once the ride started, Captain John especially focused on our kids, age 8 and 12, having a good time. He was able to stop and point things out that... More

We were looking for an airboat ride that showcased nature and its surroundings. As advertised, this was it. Captain John was very friendly and informative regarding the area and its history. Certainly a worthwhile adventure. Thanks to Captain Carl and John.
