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...

Wow what a great ride with a great captain. Nothing like it in New Jersey! We took the grandchildren and they got to see the alligators and learn lots of information about their habitat. We highly recommend this experience for everyone.

Kenny is the man: fast boat, great biological knowledge, and plenty of gators. Highly recommend! Make sure to take the earliest tours for maximum gator sighting.

There are lots of airboat tours to choose from. There were at least five operating from this landing near Vero Beach. I was a little hesitant to go on a boat than can seat 12+ people. I figured it would be hard to see over people and the size of the boat would restrict where it could go. Unfounded concerns.... More
