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

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

Highly recommend! Captain Kenny was a great tour guide today! He showed us baby gators and many different birds: osprey, heron, ibis, etc. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the local wildlife. We didn't want the tour to end! Thanks Captian Kenny!!!!

First time on an Airboat and Captain Kenny made it a delightful experience. Besides the weather cooperating, Kenny showed us a wide range of wildlife and shared his knowledge of all of them. We got to go thru the marsh on the boat, saw many alligators both on the little islands and also in the water. He took his time,... More
