Excellent Airboat Excursion with knowledgable guide.

Captain John did a masterful job of introducing us to the lake and wildlife. Well worth the trip. Our group of 4 enjoyed the commentary and was impressed with the range we covered.

Highly knowledgable and personable guide. Captain John certainly knows the area and showed us much more than we expected of the wildlife and scenery. Lunch at Marsh Landing Restaurant was terrific. Great "Florida" experience all around!

This is an awesome tour!! We took the one hour tour and it was fantastic...we saw so many gators, blue herons, egrets, ahingas, ospreys, red shouldered hawk, and more birds than I can remember at the moment.

We had an amazing morning airboat ride on Capt John's Florida Airboat Excursions. The intimacy of a smaller boat and a guide that truly loves what he does makes it an ideal trip. Capt John is extreme knowledgable about the Florida fona and wildlife. He knows where and how to spot all kinds of interesting wildlife sights. We saw gators... More

John is a great guide. Knowledgeable, approachable and friendly. Tour was only an hour but did not feel rushed and was a good value. Headsets are a must for this experience.
