Great airboat ride down Peace River! Family in from out of town and wanted to do something different and this was perfect. Mike, our captain was very knowledgeable and the ride was a lot of fun.

We visited during Labor Day weekend, and did the horseback riding as well as the airboat tour. For the horseback ride, we had Ashley as the guide. Getting on/off the horse was easier than expected, and the ride was leisurely. Got to see some longhorn cattle along the way, but rather quiet ride for the most part. Ashley took pictures for us at the end of the ride. For the airboat ride, Mike was great - he was determined for us to see an alligator, and kept going until we saw one. Also saw some manatees in one area. He made the trip exciting for the little boys that were on the boat by doing a few quick turns, and stopped to take family photos for all on board. It was nice to have the breezy airboat ride after the hot horseback ride. There are picnic tables if you want to bring your lunch, as well as a little store where you can purchase drinks, snacks and souvenirs. There is also a small playground for the kids. On the short drive from the main office to the horse/airboat area, you'll get to see chickens, ducks and goats, and a few resident alligators and turtles are housed at the main office. Fun day and definitely worth the day trip!

Loved our airboat tour, captain, and the petting zoo was a plus! We fed the giant gator that they have, and even got to hold a baby gator. Would definitely recommend to families.

Did the airboat ride on the Peace River, it was a wonderful tour. The ride was fun and knowledgeable. The office greeters helped greatly since I mixed up the tour time, was 10:00am and I thought is was 10:30. They got us a boat anyway and we enjoyed everything.
