We go where only a 6 passanger airboat would dare go. Come visit and see for yourself the true Florida. Captain Carl Johnson was born and raised in the swamp and knows all the good spots to visit.

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

Some truly amazing sights definitely worth travelling to. The two guys that run it are extremely... 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

Great welcome from a family run tour, clean facilities on site, quick brief and then we enjoyed a fantastic hour with very knowledgeable captain pointing out and stopping to see everything from birds and wild cows through to large alligators. Welcomed back to shore with a complementary momento photo and hosts happy to chat about the trip. Excellent experience for... More

To start with (In the carpark of the Mall) were unable to enter the postcode successfully onto our Tom Tom One. However this did not stop us driving as... More

Have been on the airboat ride two times with my family, and i do recommend it. See Wild Nature, Wild alligators, birds, turtles, snakes and cows. Captain Carl and John are nice people and they have visitors from all over the world. If you are in Florida do this, you won't regret. Greetings from Mark Andersen, Aalborg, Denmark

We arrived for the ride on a cloudy, cool morning. Once we boarded (airboat holds a total of 6 passengers) and started out it started to drizzle. The Captain hoped that it would stop but that was not to be the case, it only got worse. Not the conditions to go out looking for alligators, birds, etc. The Captain tried... More
