We (family of 3) had a great time! Capt. Lawrence provided excellent photo opportunities and information. Great views of alligators (adults, babies, nesting mother), turtles, birds, and even fish. Explained what plants were native and which plants are causing problems. Fun for everyone.

First, the guy who runs it is awesome! He could not have been kider or more informative. He got us going as soon as we arrived and he seriously knows what he's talking about. I would also advise going in the early morning, we saw so much more than you would in the heat of the day. I'll be back... More

Our family had an amazing time with the knowledgeable & exciting Captain Lawrence! He is more than willing to answer any questions you may have and even spin the boat around as many times as you need him to so you can get the perfect picture. We were amazed at his knowledge and love for the outdoors & wildlife....definitely a... More

Lawrence is one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to the animals and plants living in The Saint Johns watershed. When friends or family come down to visit us we always take them on his trip to show them the sights. My wife and I always look forward a trip even though we gone with him many times... More

The airboat rides was one of the most fun times I've ever had. I'd put it right up there with a helicopter ride I took in Hawaii! The sunrise tour was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing all of the birds and the alligators start their day. Even saw a few baby alligators. Captain Lawrence is professional, knowledgable and fun! I can't... More

Thank you Florida Cracker Airboat Rides for all that you did to make Saturday a great day for the BROWN family. We had little ones who were scared to ride on an airboat, you assured them that the ride was safe. Thanks again.

He was very good at spotting things that were hard to see and pointing them out so we could locate them. Lots of photo opportunities All adults on our trip - five in... More
