Third time in Florida, but first airboat tour. Researched a few online and this came out well up there. Our party of 9 all went. It was fantastic fun, although there were some big thundery showers about and we got caught in a few - but you dry off so no problem.
A informative chat beforehand by Carlos on 'gators and snakes, followed by the ride captained by a youngish Dan, who had a great line in humour as well as great knowledge. Once he'd taken us out and thrashed us around a bit, he stopped in the middle of nowhere, and when the silence settled, spread his arms and said "Welcome to my office"! What a great line!
To be fair, he'd said the 'gators where a little hard to find that day, and we only got to see one, but, that's nature - it doesn't perform to order. That didn't detract from the experience at all.
The shop has the usual stuff - hats and t-shirts and other paraphernalia. Didn't stop to eat in the "restaurant" which is, rough and ready, and the restrooms were lacking a little love and attention.
I would highly recommend this trip. We all thought is was a great thing to have done.
