I prefer Camp Holly airboat rides vs. Lone Cabbage (Twister Airboats)

I prefer a smaller airboat which is what is offered at Camp Holly. They typically seat 8 or so, vs. 20-30 at other places nearby. Some other reviewers have stated they didn't... read more

We had never been on an airboat before. When we first pulled up we were a little skeptical of the outer appearance but went on in. It was clean inside and people were friendly. Price was $30.00 per adult. You might have to wait about 30 minutes so they can have enough people to fill boat. Ride lasted about 35... More

Some other reviewers have stated they didn't see alligators...in my experience, you see more wildlife with Camp Holly than other tour operators. Let's face it, gators are wild animals and are unpredictable. I've been out... More

We had never been on an air boat before and thought it would be fun to see the wildlife from a different viewpoint. There were seven of us and we all fitted on one of the boats. Unfortunately as soon as we sat down we found a big problem. The seats have plastic covers over the foam filling which was... More

Called ahead to find out if reservations were required. No one answered. Waited an hour, called again. This time she assured me no reservation required. First come, first service. Drove 27 miles there and we're told we could not ride the airboat. The captain was gone. We needed a reservation anyway for the ride we wanted. When I pointed out... More

Super fun ! We watched the online website video prior to our ride to reassure the kids about the experience. It was loud and fast at times and the kids loved it. Our guide new exactly where all the gators were and seemed very knowledgable.

What a great time we had on our airboat ride. Captain Matt was fabulous. Not only is he an experienced captain, but he knows everything about gators. He can spot them from a mile away. Next time we visit we are going to take the night tour.

We stopped here on a Saturday morning. After waiting about 30 minutes, we were on the airboat. While riding through the brush was fun, we did not see even one alligator. In fact we saw only two or three birds and no other wildlife. It definitely was not worth the money. We will not return
