Girls seek gators

Our first airboat ride ever! Captain Brian provided a fun filled tour where we saw gators, osprey and heron. All 3 of us agreed that it was a blast and would do it again.

Set out for a mini adventure with two great friends and were not disappointed! Our captain was informative, friendly, and humorous on our 30 minute cruise through the swamp- where we saw ospreys and alligators. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative of the area and the wildlife at Blue Cypress Conservation area. We had a great time!

We took a tour on a cool, cloudy day in April, which turned out to be perfect. There were no bugs or biting insects and the ride was comfortable and exciting, especially when the Captain kicked it up. Then, slowing down through the narrow pathways gave an etherial quality to the ride. Many birds & alligators were seen. Including many... More

We had a great day with Brian on the boat. He was very knowledgeable and really made the trip fun. My husband said he gave just the right amount of information without talking the whole time. Thank you for the wonderful morning on the boat.

I had no expectations on this little tour but I was happily surprised. Mainly I thought I might see a few gators and get to ride on a cool airboat. We saw a lot of gators and they were amazing butt the birds were equally gorgeous.

This is our first family trip to Florida. I can honestly say that for our family, this airboat adventure blew Disney out of the water!! I could do the trip again and again. Thank you Captain Bill for such an awesome experience!

We went on a tour with 6 family members. The hour tour was enough time to see several gators which was great. The guide did a good job of finding gators but when he would indicate where they were, he wouldn't say right or left-just "ahead" and point and since we were sitting in front of him we couldn't tell...
