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

Had friends come to visit Florida this weekend and wanted to show them a good time. Camp Holly was a fantastic choice. We had a blast! Great food! Very accommodating while we waited. Definitely recommend.

We visited camp holly whilst on holiday in Florida , my sister has recently moved there to live and we were keen to have more experiences than just the 'theme parks' . 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

Recently went on the airboat ride at Camp Holly with two teenagers and our 20 month old. We happened to find a Groupon offer which made it really good value. The kids got to hold a small alligator when we got there and, as our tour was overbooked we had to wait, so got some food and enjoyed playing in... More

I had gotten there ahead of schedule and was excited to be boating on the river. I decided to walk around and see what Camp Holly had to offer. As I walked through the gate I saw another fenced area with a "gator" sign, I went in, stepped up and there was a lonely alligator in about 6 inches of... More

Lived in Fl. 25yrs. and this was my first airboat ride-won't be my last. Zooming around the water,over the lily pads and vegetation,on the river and up some of the very shallow side waterways was too much fun. Turning and some sidesliding with spray was the best. Oh, yes we did see the expected gators, but also the herons,egrets, and... More

A Florida resident for years and been on the boring airboat rides at other places but this is the best ride one could have ever had on an airboat with Capt Bob at the helm here in Central Florida from the Holly Fish Camp on State Road 192. The good service begins with Crystal at the desk and continues in... More
