We have been to Shell Island several times and we usually rent a Harley, but this year we tried something different, we took a airboat ride!!! After consulting Trip Advisor, we contacted Airboat Adventures, and we were both super glad I did. Stacy took our reservation over the... More

Started off viewing the gator pens behind the building. Small but pretty cool watching them feed the little gators. Then we got to hold "Chomp". He was very easy to handle and a great photo op. Even the little kids that were in the group were able to hold him without issues. Definitely feels a lot different from public perception... More

This is a little place off hwy 79 near the Boon Docks restaurant that I have drove right by every year that I have visited the PCB area and I really do not want you to do the same thing. This was an AWESOME experience for me and I loved every minute of it! $30 dollars per person does sound... More

We enjoyed the gators and the tour. You will do several 180's and a 360. The driver was funny making it an even better trip. It's a must do!

My first time on a air boat and it was so much fun. I want one, or would like my boyfriend to get one. ;-) A definite must to learn about gaters and the area.

We jumped on this airboat adventure last minute. It took us about an hour to drive to their location from Miramar Beach. We took our 6 and 3.5 yr old girls with us. Our gator show consisted of one small, tame gator. The girl doing the show told us some interesting facts about them, and then the kids got to... More

This was my sons idea. GREAT idea it was. A little pricey for 45 minute boat ride but it is a fun 45 minutes. Never seen any gators and didnt really look to hard it was all about the boat ride for me.

This was so much fun. Captain Mike made our boat ride so much fun and I got to ride up top with him! Thanks Captain Mike for a fun adventure! The gator show was great too.

As part of family bonding time during a reunion, all 21 of us went to this attraction, which consisted of a alligator show (one tame gator) and an airboat ride. The show was fascinating, especially to the children who could pet & sit upon a 6' gator. The speaker provided great information about alligators & their habits, very worthwhile. Then... More
