Very well organized. Our gator guide Bill was perfect. He was very interactive and full of knowledge. He knew the best places to see gators and other interesting animals. I would definately recommend this for a quick friendly something to do. Make sure you ask for Bill!!

“Well worth it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

My family and I took the 90 minute ride. It was a great experience! the captain was very knowledgeable, easy to interact with, entertained all of our (probably dumb) questions, and was very patient with our child. During the ride the captain had our son (8 years old) come sit in the "co-pilot" seat, which he thoroughly enjoyed! We were able to see multiple gators, fish, and plenty of birds. We were even lucky enough to see two newly hatched chicks! 60 minutes is not enough, definitely go with the 90 minute ride or the 2hr one. This place has excellent customer service! Quit reading these reviews and BOOK IT!!!!

“Thank You!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

We originally tried to book with a competitor that was top rated on TripAdvisor. The other company was were too busy and very short and rude over the phone. We were so happy we went with Captain Scott instead! Great ride and the lady at the dock (I can't remember her name) was super friendly and nice. We saw snakes gators and lots of wildlife and we loved learning about the area as he skillfully answered every answer we could throw at him. Our two teenagers loved this tour and rated it higher than the theme parks we attended.

“Swamps a hoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

There were five adults and three children on our airboat in our party. Captain Jim or Bill - sorry, been a few days - was fantastic! He found the alligators of all sizes, water fowl, scenery, and my daughter was able to get a snail specimen. It was a great memory and experience. 90 minutes was plenty for us.

Thank you for your review. Glad your family had a great time with Captains Jim and Bill. We enjoy taking families out on our airboat tours. The nice part of smaller boats is the more personal intimate setting we offer. Having the ability to take families and larger groups out on multiple boats at the same time gives great opportunities to take pictures of each other and capture the thrill on one an others faces. We have many invasive species that live in the swamp and we like to educate our guests on the damage they do to the native species. The invasive Apple Snail is one such creature that you learned about. There are many empty shells that give us the ability to show our guests and help them relate to what is being taught. Thanks again

“Great Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Took the 2 hour, 6 person ride. Was really great and our tour guide/captain Bill was very informative. As luck to be in the right place at the right time and knowing where to look, we did see a large group of baby alligators as well as the oldest male gator. Our airboat noise didn't even bother the old gator at all. There were only adults on our excursion, but very recommended, but don't forget to lather on the sunscreen. There are bathrooms in the park where the dock is located.
