I decided that after numerous trips to Florida it was time to try out an airboat ride with my family. Little did I know that this would be probably the most incredible time we've had down there yet! Captain Chris took my wife, my two sons(12 & 7 ) and I on the most beautiful, fun, and informative trip through the marshes of Florida. Captain Chris spent plenty of time telling us the history of the area, pointing out the incredible wildlife, and taking us to some of the most scenic places we could have ever imagined. We were able to see Bald eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, even a trio of Whooping Cranes. Oh..Did I mention the GATORS!?! WOW!! We saw numerous gators! Everything from 6-7' gators to little hatchlings! My kids were floored!!
I am a professional photographer whose specialty is wildlife and landscape photography and when Chris saw the cameras come out he was very good about affording me plenty of chances to shoot some of my favorite images from Florida to date!
I wish all my friends here in Michigan could get the chance to take a tour with Captain Chris and the Old Florida Airboat company. Hopefully this review will help you decide to choose them, they are an incredible company.
One more thing to mention. Captain Chris's boat is NOT one of those big giant 12 person boats. His is smaller which means he can take you where the others can't! It also means he can cater to YOU and not sacrifice quality of tour for quantity of riders. Keep that in mind. When you choose the Old Florida tour it is like having your own airboat!
