I have always wanted to ride in an airboat and I am glad that I went with Capt Duke's for my first ride. It was awesome! For me, it was better than expected. Saw alligators and other wildlife. Did the hour long tour and that was plenty. Next time I hope to do a sunset ride and I will do it with Capt Duke's. Great time with the family and we even had our own boat which was a plus during these times. The captain shared his knowledge about the area and had plenty of stories. Would highly recommend Just so you know, the meeting area was a boat launch area, no amenities but porta potties were available. You can bring your own drinks for the ride if you wish and you can save a few dollars by paying cash instead of credit card.

We went as two couples on this adventure. Captain James was great - took his time, knowledgeable, and simply fun. We did the 90-minute tour, which included seeing alligators, many bald eagles, and a cypress swamp. We'd to this again in a heartbeat. Captain James - Thank You.

Captain Dukes is much more than your typical air boat ride.Captain Duke and his employee stop numerous times along the ride and share a wealth of information about the wildlife, the alligators, and the area. We got to ask questions and got great answers! This is a boat with a maximum capacity of six passengers which allows for a much more personalized experience. We wennt for the opne hour ride and we enjoyed it immensely!
