This is our second time to Totch's for the boat tour. We came with our 12 year old son and 15 year old daughter and they both enjoyed the tour. We did the 1 hour tour and since the airboat only holds 6 we got to enjoy the experience by ourselves. Although the gators aren't really out this time of year we still enjoyed the tour as much as we did the first time. The staff is friendly and very willing to answer questions. Our kids loved holding the "baby" gators before and after our boat tour.

“Great family fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

My husband and I took our two boys (10 & 7) on the 90 minutes private tour. It was so much fun and very informative. The time flew by with a stop at a small private island, a thrilling ride through the Mangrove tunnels and our captain even let the boys drive the boat! Once the airboat tour was finished, we all had a change to hold a baby gator. We were super lucky to get Captain Chris….he was amazing!!

“Fun family experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2015

We took a one hour tour, room for 6 plus the captain and it felt like time passed quickly. My parents, husband, kids (age 7 and 9) and I all loved it! Boat goes slow and fast during the tour, through the mangroves and in larger open water spaces. We saw little raccoons very close up, they were right above our heads when we stopped to take a close look! No alligators were seen, but captain told us that they are seen more in the rainy months and right now tend to stay a little more north. Captain gave us brief info a few times during the tour, but not too much and I thought it was nice to enjoy the ride and not have constant narration. He even stopped in the mangroves once to take a group picture of us with our camera which was nice. Good value for your time and money spent!

“Fun for the whole family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2015

We chose a one hour tour and it went by quickly. We got a littler info from our captain, but not an overwhelming amount. We saw no alligators as we were told they would appear in the summer months. We stopped to see some raccoons hanging in the trees. He got so close you could almost touch them. You basically ride in the swamp under mangrove canopies. It was a lot of fun when he picked up speed and we really were cruising. At the end of the tour you were able to hold a baby alligator if you chose to.

“Just a great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015

We arrived without a reservation and this was the last of the airboat tours we checked out. I'm glad we waited, this company were by far the most friendly and informative before the tour and during it. Opportunity to hold baby gators and the story of their rescue from the farm made me warm to these strange creatures. Our tour was an hour and we had Captain Henry, he was full of information but let you ask your own questions and just take in the surroundings. Sadly no other alligators but I loved the racoons and the swamps etc. Great value, great fun and great people thanks.
