He even gave a great recommendation... More

We enjoyed the running narrative Capt. Kenny Elkins provided with his extensive knowledge and experience with alligators and the Everglades. A great ride and not too expensive. I recommend it highly.

I can't say enough good things about Captain Kenny...he is definitely a class act and the best captain in the Marsh. My 11 yr old daughter and I read online reviews from on here and yelp and decided the Marsh Beast was the airboat tour we wanted to take. We called to get reservations on our way back to Orlando...

Had a great trip. Booked last minute and they were able to add us to a tour. It was about an hour and we saw a lot of wildlife, the Captain was really knowledgeable and gave a history of the area along with plant and animal information.

We had a fantastic time on this airboat tour. I was a little nervous about going but Cpt. Kenny's experience and expertise was very reassuring. We saw birds and gators and the scenery was incredible. A great time was had by all - it was perfect in every way! We would highly recommend taking the tour with Cpt. Kenny!

Great time with Kenny on the St John river! We saw several alligators and the birds and wildlife were beautiful. Kenny was incredibly knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would recommend this tour!

My kids had the best day ever!! They won't stop talking about how cool the airboat was. It was really fast and the headphones made it so interesting. We learned all kinds of cool stuff about the animals, plants, etc. Kenny our guide made the trip memorable. I highly recommend this tour for both old and young. Very reasonably priced!!!!

Had family in from out of town & was looking for something unique for them to do. This was a great tour. Capt Kenny took us all over in search of alligators & gave us a running commentary on all the plants, & animals that live in the area. Everyone had a great time!
