Compared to other airboat tours I've been on, Gator Bait was THE BEST ! The boat was in very good condition, life vests comfortable and 'talk back' headsets, with volume control meant you could participate in the conversation, or not, as you desired.

Had a brilliant experience on Gator Bait, saw and learnt lots about the local wildlife. The air boat was fantastic,one of the best around, very comfortable and in consistent communication with the captin. The Marsh was beautiful and surprisingly quiet, even on the air boat. An hour wasn't enough would have happily spent the whole day aboard Gator Bait.

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!

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.
