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

This place was fantastic and the prices were reasonable. They were able to get us in for the day we called and they were very friendly. It was easy to find. We got there and they had a little show about an alligator that you can touch and take a souvenir photo for $10 per family. They also have a... More

Airboat tours are always fun. This one combined the sensation of flying on water with a lesson on the habitat of the American Alligator.

We were looking for something located on the outskirts of town & exciting!! We found it here and loved the hospitality of Shelley/Mike. You can truly tell they love what they do.

A waitress at The Ier Park Shoney's recommended this as a unique attraction. It did not disappoint. We loved seeing the baby alligators and even having our picture made with one at no extra charge. You can also take pictures on an airboat. Terrific ride on the airboat, with lots of birds and vegetation, but we only saw one alligator.... More
