From beginning to end, this tour was awesome! Captain Bob pointed out numerous gators, birds and other wildlife. He was patient when we asked so many questions and took his time making sure we saw what he saw and that we understood what he was explaining. A beautiful day and a wonderful, fun & educational tour.

The day was a little chilly, but we still saw dozens of gators, birds and had a great tour. The gators were just floating all over the lake, soaking up the sun, plus there were many on shore as well. Bob, our tour guide, was so informative and offered so much detail to what we saw, just helped to make... More

We enjoyed the ride on the lake as Captain Bob found tiny alligators babies and big alligators.we also saw many Ospreys, purple gallinules, and nesting egrets and herons, along with many many more birds...Bob explained the history of the area & was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife. A must do one hour tour for young and old.

Alligators great and small, Shannon our guide found them all. My wife and our friends really enjoyed the tour. Shannon knows the area, its history and where to look for the wildlife. He kept us entertained and informed. We spotted at least 25 gators and many birds and their nests. He took his time and gave us plenty of photo... More

We found this company by chance and are so glad we did! The one hour tour was conducted by the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Bob. With only eight of us on the boat, the trip was relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. We saw loads of local wildlife with more alligators than we thought possible! A highly recommended company for an airboat... More
