“WOW! The Absolute Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Fresh air, an airboat to get you to the wildlife & flora, THE BEST airboat Captain in Florida and you have Florida Airboat Excursions. We spent 3 mind boggling hours deep in the Blue Cypress Recreation Area, seeing the birds in their habitat. Roseate Spoonbills, Osprey, Great Blue Heron's, Marsh Hen, Purple Gallinule, Turkey Vultures, Black Ibis, White Ibis and so much more. Captain John knew just where to go and expertly maneuvered the airboat to get us right where the birds were.

When you are in the Vero Beach area, this is a MUST DO activity.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

We just took our second airboat ride with Capt John. He knows what he's talking about, is great with the kids and an all around professional. His boat is smaller than most of the others so it's a more personal experience and he's able to go places where the bigger boats can't. We're going back again for a longer ride so we can jump the levee.

“Wonderful airboat experience of the Florida marsh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Captain John was so knowledgeable and fun. He gave us a most memorable experience. Great nature tour and a fun ride! We were able to go in narrow areas where the big air boats cannot. we saw wonderful wildlife, birds and gators. I would highly recommend to one and all. We will definitely return with friends and family!

“Up close and personal airboat ride with Captain John”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

My family of 4 went for 1 1/2 hrs of air boat ride with Captain John. He shared so much knowledge
About the outdoors swamps, birds, alligator, turtles, flowers, trees. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his seance of humor we all felt like family. We had a beautiful day and the weather was great. I was so glad my daughter, Anna pick Captain John.
I can see Ed and I going again. We had a blast and he referred us to a redneck restraunt that was Awesome and very good, especially their desserts ;-)

“See lots of GATORS, birds-EGRETS, HERONS, and even ROSEATTE SPOONBILL !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I have been a number of the various airboat cruises in Vero Beach and this is by far THE BEST ! You get a very personalized tour and he will concentrate on Gators, birds, reptiles, or whatever it is you like to see. The pictures I could take off Osprey's in the nest were amazing, gators too!
