Now this is fun!!! From the wild ride to all the various animals and birds you'll see you'll remember this day. We saw small gators to the big ones along with bald eagles and so much more. Captain Will was a hoot and made for a very entertaining experience. And after the boat ride you return to the dock and... More

Awesome fun ride. It's easy to get to. Just on SR 50 between Orlando and Titusville. It's a fun reasonably priced adventure for friends, families or couples. The boats are big and designed to give everyone on board an exciting and informative experience. The captain is experienced and knowledgeable and finds plenty of wildlife for you to see and photo.

A group of 30 of us went here after viewing a rocket launch the previous evening. The boats were comfortable and the scenery was nice. We saw gators and many birds, as well as beautiful trees. But the captain made jokes about Black Lives Matters and academics. "Pasty overeducated guys who live in their mother's basements". This was said to... More

Thank you Captain Will for making our airboat ride so amazing. So knowledgeable and personable. Porkchop was adorable with a face only a momma could love. Holding an alligator is always super fun. Everyone should make a point to go when visiting beautiful Florida to go. Thanks again Captain Will.

an hour away from Orlando, but what a great change from the parks. We did the last tour of the day (was recommended to us over email as the highest chances to see animals because of the heat).

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of going on an airboat adventure (not just a ride) with Capt. Will. We had never done anything of the like (being from Ohio), but it is definitely something we see ourselves doing again...and again when we come back to Florida. Capt. Will is not only an expert boatsman, but is witty, knowledgeable... More
