You will be amazed as you glide through just inches of water in the creeks and marsh area's off of the Intracoastal Waterway just 5 minutes from the beach. Look for wild Alligators, dolphins, birds of all kinds and more...DO NOT go to the hair dresser before you go on this tour! Live gator shows Wed-Sat 7ft gator..."BUBBA", fully voice and hand command trained, you WILL NOT see this anywhere else!!! Get your picture taken with a live alligator too! Our captains and crew are the best in the business! We've set the standard that others have to follow!

Super fun adventure . Mike the boat captain was the best. Got to go on the newest airboat and we saw an alligator . Apparently it's pretty rare to see them in the day in the summer due to the heat. Mike was very knowledgable about the area. Got to hold the small alligators at the facility. Got some great... More

My husband wanted an airboat rode to checkmark a bucket list item. You board an old delivery truck to head to the boat. That was a little creepy seeing all these people boarding a windowless vehicle. Inside is all these names and markers to add your name. Captain James was knowledgeable about the eco system and the boat which had... More

Our adventure began with Cindy who was very knowledgeable about alligators and shared some interesting facts with our group. She was super sweet and was patient as we all took turns holding Thing 2 (the baby gator) and took pics! We then had a few minutes to check out the other gators. I rated this a 4 and not a... More

We have been trying to go to the Airboat Adventure for 3 years, due to unpredictable weather we haven't been able to until this year (June 25, 2015)!! It was worth the wait!! We had Capt Mike and he was an absolute blast, definitely the best at what he does!! There was a lot to see, and he was sure... More

We called and got a reservation the same day. When we arrived it was storming on the water so we did have to reschedule the boat tour, however the gator guide allowed is to hold and touch a gator, walked us around to see other gators, and interacted with us for a while. He was very personable. The next morning... More

For just 2 people it was 65 dollars. We got to hold a baby alligator and was told some interesting facts about gators. Then we went on a big boat ride to find alligators. Maybe lasted 30 mins. We didnt see anything. Then after we had the option to see and touch a really big alligator that apparently didnt bite.... More

Captain Mike and crew were GREAT!! Starting with Shelly and her helpful and friendly advice and the handling of the gator to the airboat ride itself with Captain Mike and Christian. They made it a very enjoyable and fun evening. Seen a few gators and other wildlife and lots of laughs to go with it. The 360's and going through... More

We booked this in advance and the kids talked about it for weeks before we got here, it by far was better then they expected. Shelley/Mike treated us like family, and the was so nice. You can truly tell they love what they do. Airboat ride was awesome too; thank goodness for headphones they provide. We went out early, at... More
