A group of 6 of us went on the 30 minute tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip entertaining. He shared a lot of interesting facts about the swamp/marsh and the creatures that live there. I would definitely do this again, but would probably opt for the 60 minute tour.

Had no idea that the "swamps" of Florida were so beautiful and interesting - flora and fauna. Great way to explore these wetlands. Was amazed at how many critters there were, and how few other boats are out there. Our captain knew a lot about the plants and animals, where they hung out at, and shared some really great secret...

The boat was absolutely safe and appropriate for middle school aged kids on up to the elderly. The tour was packed with birds to see and some alligators. I was a little disappointed at the number of alligators we saw for $90 (not really the guides fault, my husband was satisfied so it's just my opinion) and the only time... More

We highly recommend Gator Bait and Captain Bill for your airboat trip. He was very informative about everything wildlife oriented, had an amazing sense of humor, and was cautious while driving. We didn't think about this before our trip but when we came back to dock, there was an accident between two other airboats with injuries and two passengers ended... More

We went on a ride with Brian. We were a party of 7, with three young kids (ages 6, 6, and 4). We saw at least a dozen alligators and dozens of birds nests including osprey and Great Blue Heron with babies!! We could get incredibly close and the birds didn't see bothered as they didn't fly away or squawk... More

Our Gator bait tour was great! We saw tons of gators! Capt Brian knew exactly where to take us to see all ages of gators from 13ft to babies. He also pointed out all kinds of birds that live in the area. The hour flew by. Our party of 6 all enjoyed it. We would recommend this tour for all... More

Our trip was well enjoyed by the entire family. Our guide, Brian, was friendly and knowledgeable. He led us right to alligators including baby ones. Also pointed out many types of birds. This is a must do attraction in Vero. You will not be disappointed!

Saw a lot of gators, some were HUGE! We saw baby alligators up close that were about a month old. Dozens of birds, different kinds. Our guide Captain Bill was extremely knowledgeable, he knew all kinds of facts and information on the wildlife we saw and most important he knew where to find them! He piloted the boat all over...
