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

There is also loads of wild life and Bob does a fantastic commentary describing all the birds, the history of Blue Cypress, all about all the marshes, etc. You will not... More

Been coming to Fla. for years and never took an airboat ride. Finally took one last week with the family and there are really no words to describe how much we enjoyed the ride. Our captain for the day was Shannon who was very personable, knowledgeable, and narrated the tour step by step through headsets. We saw lots of big... More

We had beautiful weather and what scenery! Capt. Shannon was a pleasure and very knowledable. We brought our friend from up north and to see her face and feel her excitement was a great feeling. She was a little nervous at first but it didn't take her long to start enjoying all the birds and gators. We will make another... More
