Our first airboat ride ever and it was fantastic! The Blue Cypress Preserve was absolutely amazing thanks to Captain Kenny who narrated our wildlife adventure and found us dozen of alligators and ospreys to photograph. Anyone looking for adventure needs to contact the Marsh Beast Airboat Tours. Kenny was so well versed with this area and with his species of... More

The Ohio girls absolutely enjoyed our marsh tour. The captain took the time to show us so much of the native wildlife and plenty of crocs up close. He was such a gentleman, too. We didn't bring coats on a cool day and he offered his. So nice!

My wife and I were visiting a local restaurant. As we spoke to the couple in the next booth about our week long visit to the area, they insisted we join Captain Kenny on the Marsh Beast. We called the number and Captain Kenny called back within 30 minutes. We were set. In addition to an awesome well kept vessel,... More

Thanks so much for choosing the Marsh Beast and your very nice review. It's not about having a full boat each trip out, it's all about meeting great people and sharing a special treasured place in Florida's marshlands. Blazing new trails are always a fun time ! Please continue to share your adventure with friends. Thanks, Capt. Kenny More

At the top of our list of what we wanted to do on our Florida vacation was to take an airboat tour. Our adventure with Capt Kenny was incredible. We couldn't imagine having a better time. We called Marsh Beast yesterday afternoon and Kenny told us he didn't have anyone else booked today, but would be happy to take us... More

We had our tour in Vero Beach (Blue Cypress Recreation Area), Florida... although, honestly spoken, we didn't mean to go anywhere near alligators during our Florida trip, because they seemed quite scary to us. But Capt. Kenny easily took away our doubts... and gave us the best tour ever!!! We have never imagined how exiting (yet REALLY REALLY save!!! ;-)... More

We took our first airboat ride with Capt. Kenny in July when our grandson was visiting. What a great time we had! We found Capt. Kenny very knowledgeable and he made the trip interesting and fun. We couldn't have asked for a better first experience and recommend it highly!

Excellent tour of Lake Okeechobee, even on a day that turned out very rainy. Capt. Kenny's knowledge of the wildlife and the lake is superb and we plan on taking his Marsh Beast tour in Vero Beach in the future. We really appreciated the headsets to make the commentary easy to hear over the noise from the boat; the rain... More

This airboat tour was so much fun and educational! Capt. Kenny Elkins has huge knowlege of wildlife and vegetation in the area but also has a great sense of humor and likeable personality. The tour was a mix of bird sightings, flower gathering (to make a "swamp bouquet" for each lady on the boat) and pure airboat excitng ride. Go... More

Our experience with Captain Kenny was the most informative airboat ride. The boat was very bright colored but had all the safety you could need. The headsets were perfect for hearing the tour that Kenny gave. During our tour he explained about the plant life, which was beautiful and colorful and actually got to pick a few. He pointed out...
