Marsh says choose the "Marsh Beast"

Lots of fun, highly recommend. Captain Kenny rocks. Saw plenty of wild life, plant life and beautiful scenery. Well worth the money.

We started our morning meeting Captain Kenny and having him point out a small gator floating by the boat. There were supposed to be other parties who didn't show. Captain Kenny called them and we waited a few minutes...but still no show. So we loaded up (just my husband Marsh and I). What an awesome experience!! Captain Kenny told us... More

Kenny gave us quite a ride! Fun, informative and lots to see. He got us up close and personal with the gators and birds. His knowledge and witty personality made it an enjoyable ride. Highly recommend this fun and safe tour. Way to go Kenny! Brie (Boston, MA)

Capt. Kenny Elkins was amazing maneuvering the airboat around so we could see all the animals. And boy we got to see a bunch. The ride was so much fun and informational at the same time. Make sure you do this excursion.. And remember it's The Marsh Beast Airboat Tours 772-584-0089. You won't be sorry!

We had a group of ten and everyone loved it. Ken was a very informative tour guide and talked about the history of the marsh and the wildlife. At one point he turned off the prop and we quietly drifted and half a dozen alligators surfaced all around the boat. I would recommend this trip to everyone. We were out... More

Marsh Beast had the safest, most comfortable, and coolest-looking airboats of all the other companies vying for your money. Captain Kenny is a kind of legend around that area, we were to later find out. He was funny and very knowledgeable. Saw plenty of gators and other wildlife on our tour. It was definitely one of the highlights of our... More

Today we went on an incredible airboat adventure with Captain Kenny! This was my 13 year old daughter's/my first ride and my parent's second ride on the Marsh Beast. Imagine something that actually thrilled a teenage girl! Yup, she was non stop picture taking with a huge smile on her face the whole time! I was equally thrilled and my... More

This is the forth time I have been out to see the alligators and this was the best tour to date. The Captain (Kenny Elkins) was a great tour master and although he warned us that the alligators were not as visible as usual because of the warm weather so early this spring, we saw dozens of alligators on our...

Best hour spent in Vero Beach area! I called ahead for some info as we were unsure when we were going to schedule a ride. Tammy was very helpful with her suggestions and we booked a ride for that afternoon. Soon after making our reservation we received a brief text w/directions and info for arrival. We were greeted cordially by... More

With our favorite friends visiting from their home in England, we annually plan some kind of exciting and fun trip or activity. This was such a great experience! Beautiful, well equiped, comfortable airboat with a well informed Captain Ken. Weather was perfect. Saw lots of gators, big and tiny. Had great photo opportunities of ospreys' nests, great blue heron's nest... More
