We booked Marsh Beast just by chance. Happened to see an advertisement in the newspaper. My wife and I took our 25 year old grandson with us and were extremely satisfied with the entire experience. The airboat was top notch, the captain (owner) gave us tremendous info and a thrilling ride. Will use Marsh Beast again. The ride is 1... More

Captain Kenny and his wife guided us on their airboat around the Blue Cypress Recreation Area marsh--about 7 miles inland from Vero Beach, Florida. On the one hour tour, we saw alligators, osprey, moor hens, anhingas and gorgeous lotus and water hyacinth patches in bloom. They were both very professional, friendly and highly knowledgeable about what we were seeing. We... More

Captain Kenny took us when nobody else would since we had a small group of three. It was a hot day when they generally stop doing tours around 9am. We were referred by another captain. We ended up having a private tour, which was wonderful. Kenny knew the history and wildlife very well, and knew where to take us to... More

Going on an air boat with Capt. Kenny. Found him by dumb luck. Very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. Great sense of humor. More like hanging out with your favorite uncle than tour guide. Best money we spent on the whole trip!

We had such an amazing time on Captain Kenny's airboat tour. He recommended that we drive out for the earliest tour to maximize the potential for gator viewing, and the early wake up was well worth it. We saw dozens of gators and Captain Kenny was also excellent at pointing out the various waterfowl on the marsh. For anyone looking... More

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
