My father and I went on a 2-hour tour in Blue Cypress on St. Patrick's Day afternoon. Captain Chris was at the designated spot ahead of time, all ready to go, and gave us good directions to get there. He even advised us to move our rental car to the opposite side of the street to avoid debris form other airboats launching nearby.
The tour itself was great. The airboat is the perfect size: not to small to make you nervous, but not too big to take the fun out of it.
The scenery is beautiful, and we saw numerous birds and three or four baby alligators. Chris made three or four stops along the way, telling us stories and giving information about the area. He's very personable, and we felt at ease the entire time.
Although it's pricey, the tour is worth it; you get a personal touch, and are able to go to areas that larger "touristy" boats cannot go. When I return to the area, I hope to book a tour with Chris in another location. Thanks, Chris, for a great time!
