My family and I recently went on a trip to Cypress Lake to see some gators and other animals on a tour. We were staying in Kissimmee but decided to go here for a day. Well.....it was the right decision. We took the half hour tour (there is an option for an hour tour). The air boat was very cool... More

We recently went in this airboat ride. We were staying in Orlando & had to register and pay for this airboat ride in St. Cloud. Once you pay you then travel 38 miles east to the airboat location. It was an easy drive, all highway, and once we took the airboat tour we felt it was definitely worth the drive... More

Excellent excursion...a highlight of our trip to Florida...and can't wait to do this again! We saw lots of advertising for airboat tours near Orlando, and landed on this one because it was further from the city limits...so we figured it was closer to better swamp waters. We were right! Ironically, the week before we went on the tour, a friend... More

This was a great trip and we saw lots of gators. We even saw a mom with her little gator babies. The ride was fun, the boat was fast but not too crazy. The guide took his time, stoped so we could get close to the gators. We got so close. The guide gaves lots of information about the area... More

The place is 45 minutes from purchasing the tickets which was not explained to us until after tickets were purchased. When we arrived we waited in an outside bar area which I was not told about nor did I want my toddler around. We were told they were running " a little behind" but it was really over an hour... More
