Went with my husband 2 kids (9 &11) and my mother in law. We all had a great time and Brain was great with my kids who were acting a little silly. Brian clearly is from the area and he knows what he is talking about and we not only had a fun time but we all learned something. The... More

If you want to go out on an airboat ride an see what Mother Nature has created in Blue Cypress Lake, I think you would definitely enjoy your time on Gator Bait Airboat. We went yesterday on a cloudy day and it was perfect. It could have been hot if the sun had not been behind the clouds occasionally and... More

We left at 1:30 p.m. on a river/swamp air boat tour. Definitely have to follow directions, since meeting area is marked only a boat launch sign. Once there, however, parking was ample. Bathroom facilities available, but leave quite a bit to be desired. The airboat, on the other hand, was awesome. Talk about gliding over water, well actually over about... More

I suppose you might could do this once in a lifetime, but it's about as obnoxious a way to view nature as has been invented. If the allure of seeing live 'gators is overwhelming, then go ahead. The guides are unfailingly entertaining. But alligators are a dime a dozen in this part of Florida - walk 5 minutes from the... More

This was a perfect 1/2 day trip. We were looking for something quick and fun just outside of Vero Beach and came across Gator Bait Airboat Tours. We saw a ton of alligators, ranging from babies less than a foot long through a few that were 10+ feet. Captain Bill was both entertaining and educational. I would definitely do this... More

Gator Bait was a fantastic ride. Our captain was very friendly, funny, knowledgeable of everything in the swamp. I would encourage anyone of any age to do this.

$45 per person might be a little stiff for family outings, but if your looking for a trip to see and learn about local wild life, this trip is great. Guide was very knowledgeable of Eco system, birds, and gators. We enjoyed the trip very much. Kids will love it as well as the adults.

Captain Brian was GREAT!! Nice boat. It was very cool to have the headphones with a microphone so you can communicate and enjoy the ride without the screaming of the engine in your ear. We had a hard time choosing between the few that came up on line when looking that is why I'm writing this to help someone else... More
