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

I had a hard time believing that the Gator Bait tour truly deserved 97% of their ratings as “Excellent”. My skepticism proved to be totally unfounded. The tour was outstanding and Captain Bill was exceptional. We will regularly do the tour in the future and take people visiting us in Vero Beach. The trip is much more than just seeing... More

We visited last year and had such a great adventure will Capt Bill that we decided to go again this year during our Vero Beach vacation. The trip was nothing short of outstanding with Capt Bill pointing out all of the great wildlife as well as the science behind the area. I can't recommend this trip higher! Saw lots and... More

This was a very fun tour we called the night before and Capt. Billy said he had a couple spaces left for the early 9 AM tour which I highly recommend it was beautiful. The water was very calm we had a pretty full crew and Capt. Billy totally knows these waters. We took a look at many birds and... More

This is a "must do" for anyone in this area! Captain Bill was knowledgeable, funny, creative & knew just how to make this adventure one that we will never forget! We had no idea of the beauty we were about to discover. We had no idea there would be so many gators so up close and personal. We had relatives... More

Captain Bill and his awesome airboat (with cool gator illustrations) highlighted day 2 of our Florida adventure. My daughter and I were smiling and laughing from the moment the captain "punched it" a little. It was mating season so the gators were out in force. He snuck up on a bunch of them as they glided through the marsh. Captain... More

We saw an alligator nest deep in the area as well as a lRge osprey nest. He shared information about the area and passed on a wealth... More
