Five us went on the airboat tour with Shannon. He was very knowledgeable and personable. The ride was fantastic and very scenic. There were many alligators and birds. Shannon loves what he does and you can tell by his enthusiasm! My son loved it and wants to go again! We will definitely be back with more family and friends. Thank... More

If you have been thinking about taking an airboat ride, think no more and book... More

A very beautiful and relaxing airboat ride. Captain Bob was very knowledgeable and fun. He pointed things out to our group that I'm sure we would have missed. Go see for yourself what I'm talking about!

I have lived in FL for 15 years and have taken a number of airboat rides.....However, this was the most educational, exciting, and fun airboat experience ever! The boat is very comfortable and 'captain' Bob, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We not only saw alligators but also their babies! Beautiful Cypress Lake is absolutely teaming with wildlife. It may have been... More

Been on numerous airboat rides with my family. This was an awesome trip. Lots of alligators, birds, and turtles. Captain Bob was knowledgeable, personable and very helpful. Comfortable, clean airboat. Highly recommend. Must do this trip when you are in the Vero Beach FL area.

We took an hour ride, saw alligators, many birds, turtles,and more. A unique experience that we loved and will do again. I will take all of my friends and family when they come to visit. You will want to bring a camera. Bob (George) will go out of his way to provide a great experience!

Just had the pleasure of riding with Airboat Wilderness Rides in Vero Beach in January. Can't say enough about this experience. Comfortable, informative (ask for Bob), hour long ride with lots of BLACK alligators, osprey and other birds too numerous to mention. Whether you are in Vero Beach or driving distance from it--don't miss this adventure.
