Capt Matt made this an experience to remember! Our party of 8 had a whole air boat to ourselves and we were out on the ride for 50 minutes. We saw 5 or 6 alligators, the biggest of which was around 8'. In addition to showing us the alligators, Matt told us all about alligator and St John river system... More

Had a great time! Games to play and alligators to see while you wait. Less expensive that other places. Captain Dan was great. He talked to us at different points in the trip. He got us right up next to an alligator on the shore. The kids loved the ride. They each got to hold a baby alligator.

This was the second time on this ride and my family loves it. We had Dan as our driver both time (4 years apart) and he's very knowledgable about the flora and fauna. We live in Hawaii so this is a awesome experience for my family. We saw at least 15 gators and some we got within a couple of... More

We chose this venue because it was the only one that could accommodate us on short notice. I had read the bad reviews but unlike those reviewers found them to be very personable. We had a greatride. Saw lots of alligators.

My family of 6 enjoyed the airboat ride and "Captain Matt" made every effort to make sure we saw some gators even though the temps were very cool and it was late in the day when the gators start going into the water for the night. All the guys were friendly and took the time to answer our questions. The... More

There are a few of us who fall for the sign "HOLD LIVE GATOR". Upon entering,if you don't want an airboat ride, you are ignored. When I was finally able to get the attention of the 'gator guy, I was told we wouldn't be able to take our own pictures. I would have been happy to purchase one of theirs,... More

Only 30 minutes compared to Midway which is an hour for about the same price. Also you don't get to hold a baby alligator afterwards at Camp Holly.

We first want to say thanks! Let me say, for a 15 minute airboat ride, a haunted trail and food on site...it was pretty reasonable! Food was a little pricey....but delicious! The only bad part about the haunted airboat rides were the mosquito control....which there was none!!

We have a lot of visitors and we always take an airboat ride. Camp Holly is by far the best and now the only company we use. They are always friendly and competent. We had a very bad experience at Lone Cabbage and do NOT recommend ever using them.

Not worth the $30 per person 35 minute ride into the remote parts of the river where you see an alligator or two..not much narration. Maybe just go for the boat ride and don't expect too much.
