Airboating, yes you can do it in Orlando!

It's something different you can do in Orlando. It's like going to Everglades, but staying close to city. A lot of times they have groupon deals, but we just mist them. If you... read more

I went here for a look round. After 20 minutes I had finished. The birds and gators are all in cages that way way to small. I went in the restaurant for a burger and a beer which was fine & the service was good. Didnt see anyone on airboats. If you want an airboat ride, take time & go... More

It's something different you can do in Orlando. It's like going to Everglades, but staying close to city. A lot of times they have groupon deals, but we just mist them. If you want to take the best pictures, be sure you have a seat on the left of the boat. The boat makes a clockwise loop and you'll be... More

We took a work group for an airboat ride. For most of them this was the first time in Florida. I have been in Florida my entire life and have had hundreds of hours on airboats. All of us had a great time. The guide was very knowledgable and knew where to find the wildlife. Lots of alligators, birds, turtles,... More

I took a bunch of senior technical geeks to BH for an evening adventure and dinner. Was not disappointed! It's a super great ride and like other reviewers - the journey gets you out of your normal head space. While we went on the last ride of the day right before sundown and didn't see too many gators (just pieces... More

The boat ride was a real good time next time I will be sure to take the longer trip so he can shows us more of what you do everyday! I also want to thank Captain... More

This place is near Lake Mary FL and is very easy to get to off 417. There is not a lot to see and do beyond the boat ride. The ride is 30 minutes long, lots of fun and you really do see a TON of crocs plus a lot of different birds. The trip would be very fun for... More

After spending several days in the Disney theme parks, we decided to step outside the bubble and see the "real" Florida. I am so glad that we did. After lunch and drinks at the Black Hammock restaurant - which was great, especially the gator bites - Captain John took us (4 adults, 7 kids) on a thrilling 30-minute fan boat... More

My two sisters and I traveled from Rhode Island to Florida to celebrate my eldest sister's 67th birthday. Living near the ocean, we've had plenty of boating experiences, but none like this! We had never seen an alligator or been on an airboat ride before so we booked the hour tour with Captain Steve. We realized that the alligators were... More

My Sweetie surprised me with a stop off here on our way to Orlando. We had a great lunch then headed out for our air boat ride. The wait staff in the restaurant was terrific and the food was great. Jordan took great care of us. They even sent some one from the boat attraction to see if we were... More

Although the alligators on site are few in numbers, the fun to be had is much bigger. Our tour guide, John, was amusing and made the fan boat ride a blast. You hit speeds of about 45 mph as you skim over reeds and through the brush looking for gators. Highly recommended and the price isn't too steep. It's a... More
