“Must Do in Orlando!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I took the 45 minute airboat road which was more like an hour. Our guide was Captain Kirk so that was awesome right off the start. Nature is impossible to predict but he did everything he could to make sure we saw all the cool animals and we did. We got to check out a few big gators, a bunch of small ones, a bunch of turtles and birds, a couple of snakes and even caught a quick glimpse of a wild hog. When we got back there was a quick presentation by Ariel. She had a small gator named Bowzer and we all got to take a turn holding him and got our picture taken with him which was available for purchase. Overall it was great fun and a very unique experience that you can't do anywhere else and I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to the area.

“Good Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This was our first time on an airboat. We had a great time. We took the private 45 min. tour out of the southport location. Our guide Tyler was very nice and informative. We saw 2 Gators and a lot of different birds. Overall for a first time experience it was great. It is a little on the pricey side for the amount of time we were out and we will probably not do it again. But well worth it for a first timer.

“Not worth time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We have been on an air boat ride before in Fort Lauderdale. We really enjoyed the experience, so when we booked for Orlando thought it would be a great experience for our grandchildren. We were totally disappointed. We seen two little alligators. Other than that it was a quick ride and they took a picture which they wanted more money for. The commentary and ride was brief at best. We paid the same fee in Fort Lauderdale and had a great commentary with many species of birds, plant life, several close ups of alligators, along with some fancy air boat manovers. After the air boat ride, they had a great show. We did not expect it to be the same great experience, however, we expected something for our money. The coupons were also misleading.

We were very pleased with the staff, sights, and everything about their wonderful business. They take their time to make you feel very welcome and to please your needs. We took three of our grandchildren and they even had a wonderful exciting time! It was amazing and we will visit again!
