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

A little bit of a drive, but well worth it. Capt. Shannon was very experienced and makes it a fun, educational one hour trip. He knows all the right spots to find the wildlife. We saw about 20 gators. He was even able to find us some young gators to view. He provides info on all different types of wildlife... More
