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.

I took my wife and daughter there for an experience. Everyone was great, we held an alligator, and the boat ride was fun.

Great experience for my wife, 7 year old daughter, and I. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. Gators, birds, and all sorts of fresh water animals were plentiful to see. The ride lasted about 40 minutes and was worth the price. We all had a great time!

I have lived in the Melbourne area for over 50 years. Anytime we have guests from out of state we always make Camp Holly Airboats a must see for our family and friends. This gives folks a real FL experience and an off the beaten path fun activity. The guides are very friendly and knowledgeable and try very hard to... More

Great ride and tour by knowledgeable cap't. Matt... wonderful customer service by Rob in the bar. The only draw back was the so-called site photographer who was getting his kicks from taking shots of cheap mouth wash in the back room... His hands were so shakey, it's a wonderful del he didn't drop his camera. And he had the indecency... More

I had always always wanted to go gator spotting in the swamps of Florida , and this experience provided that and a whole lot more. The office /... More
