Our adventure with Captain John was a thrill. Our adventure was informative, safe, and exciting. Captain John's knowledge and passion for the wildlife and environment is obvious. Captain John pointed out many rare species of birds throughout our trip. He had an excellent sense of humor and was great with all ages. (We had three generations on board) Captain John's... More

I traveled to Florida to visit my daughter, and an airboat tour was something we have always wanted to do! Captain John is not only full of fantastic information, he is hilarious and his stories are captivating. The tour he provides is up close and personal as well as exciting and exhilarating. I learned so much about Florida's marshlands and... More

It was both peaceful and exciting getting out and exploring the Florida marsh wildlife with Captain John! Riding on a fanboat has always been a dream of mine, and I already need more of it! Captain John is fun and informative; I am so happy we chose this tour. Blue cypress trees, ospreys, marsh hens, and ALLIGATORS are just a... More

Our family of five has taken two trips with Captain John and both times, our expectations have been exceeded! John knows all about the wildlife and knows where to find the alligators. He holds the interest of all ages and his smaller boat can go places the larger boats can't. We highly recommend Florida Airboat Excursions!

We just took our second airboat ride with Capt John. He knows what he's talking about, is great with the kids and an all around professional. His boat is smaller than most of the others so it's a more personal experience and he's able to go places where the bigger boats can't. We're going back again for a longer ride... More

Captain John was so knowledgeable and fun. He gave us a most memorable experience. Great nature tour and a fun ride! We were able to go in narrow areas where the big air boats cannot. we saw wonderful wildlife, birds and gators. I would highly recommend to one and all. We will definitely return with friends and family!

I have been a number of the various airboat cruises in Vero Beach and this is by far THE BEST ! You get a very personalized tour and he will concentrate on Gators, birds, reptiles, or whatever it is you like to see. The pictures I could take off Osprey's in the nest were amazing, gators too!

Captain John was fantastic. This was my 4th airboat tour but the first with him. His tour surpassed the other 3. He has a smaller boat with more horsepower so we were able to access areas I didn't see previously. We took my husband's sister and her friend and they loved it.
