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.

We had a wonderful experience taking an airboat ride with Captain Matt. There were six of us, include a 2-1/2 year old, and we all enjoyed it. The river was almost at flood stage and water was really high, and we still got to see a bunch of alligators and other wildlife. I would certainly recommend this adventure.

Just landed in Orlando and hit this place on the way to see family. Wasn't sure what to expect but ran into an incredible guide. "Captain Matt", 13 years into this, whipped is around the swamp and added a ton of interesting information about the river, alligators, and other animals. He was great at spotting them and circling back for... More

While on our way back from a business trip in Melbourne, I saw the signs along the road and pulled in. The staff was VERY friendly, and the Air boat ride was both of our first rides. Our tour captain was very knowledgeable of the area- especially since he used to own the place. The beer was cold and affordable,... More

Great airboat tour with a knowledgable captain. Capt. Matt had a lot of good information about the area and took us on a good tour of the St. John's river.
