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.

Best one we have done in this area. Our captain was really good. He made sure we all saw gators of all sizes. Birds and their young. Really informative. Excellent commentary. Highly recommended

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...

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...
