Bill is an incredible boat Captain!!! He made this trip sooo much fun, educational, exciting, and photo ops galore. He pointed out the little things like where hundreds of dragonflies hang out, teeny little bird nests that use the grasses to nest in, the huge nests of the Osprey, and of course the alligators, lots of alligators. We saw their... More

as we drove west there were fewer signs if civilization, and that's what we were looking for. An airboat ride in the Blue Cypress preserve is trip back to the Florida of the past. We spent an hour gliding through the marsh. Out guide did an excellent job explaining the plants and animals we encountered. He was entertaining and willing... More

We went on an air boat tour with Gator Bait on 7/10/15 during our family vacation. It was a great experience. The captain was very friendly and informative. Our kids were impressed with the alligators and other wildlife. Just a neat opportunity to experience a different environment. I highly recommend it.

They had opened a few levees and water was spilling into the lake creating a feeding frenzy for alligators We saw hundreds of them. Even saw one of them feeding. He showed us water fowl and other creatures indigenous to the area. Very well worth... More

Having lived in Florida for over 43 years I am sad to say I had never taken an airboat tour. Our daughter wanted to take one for her birthday, so we decided to do it while we were all on vacation in Vero/Ft. Pierce. We had a group of 7, ages 12-58. Did research on Trip Advisor and decided upon... More
