This tour was better than I expected. Probably the best experience I ever had. It was amazing! I would definitely go again. Captain Bill knew all the spots to see alligators and was knowledgeable.

This is a terrific experience for all! The only caution would be to use judgment when taking children to ensure they are old enough to understand they must follow the directions. You will see great wildlife and have a fun ride. For this with sensitive ears, earplugs are a must.

Gator Bait Captain Bill was very friendly and welcoming. The day was a bit cold and windy and yet he managed to make the ride interesting, fun and informative. He took us to areas where he knew we would catch sightings of alligators. We saw numerous birds and Captain Bill was very knowledgeable regarding the different species. The only suggestion... More

Went out on Gator Bait Tours this morning with Captain Bill. It was so Cool! Just the airboat itself was an amazing ride. The Capt did a great job. Made the ride informative and fun. We saw lots of wildlife and quite a few gators. Exciting trip and super value. I highly recommend Gator Bait!

Four of us had a delightful hour with Captain Bill on Tuesday. Plenty to see and our first time on an airboat. Bill has great eyesight and can spot things from a great distance. Time goes by quickly; it's so much fun you can't believe it's over.

My family visited last spring and had the BEST TIME imaginable with Captain Bill! The airboat tour was one of the greatest highlights of our trip to Florida! Captain Bill and photographer Kate knew all the great spots to find the gators hiding! We were impressed with how well Bill knew the habitat and waters. Not only did we get... More
