We enjoyed our family air boat ride. The wind was up a bit so it was hard to see gators but we did spot one little one. Most exciting wildlife was a grazing bull wading in the knee deep water. It was friendly and huge. Our guide/captain was a gruff looking but friendly man who spoke well about the area and the wildlife. He gave us a nice ride and we had some first timers in our group of 7. We had the boat to our own family group and we were able to spread out with plenty of room to spare. The pricing was discounted on a Groupon and you can save $2 a person if you pay cash.

We have had many friends come and visit us from out of state, three in the last three months. We have had two trips with the same captain. This man/diabetic with leg ulcers, can't remember name was incredible rude. He thinks he is funny but he is condescending. One particular trip, we saw what looked like antlerless in the water, I turned around and pointed. He ignored me, I turned back around and he yelled "Listen lady, if I stopped her the boat would stall, I know what I am doing and I see it." There was silence when we stopped. Folks were afraid to move. I was completely offended and told me husband to put that tip back in his pocket! I will not be coming back and will be trying Airboats of Melbourne. You've lost one excellent income source. It would also be helpful if the people working here enjoyed their jobs and displayed that same expression.

Enjoyed our 30min boat ride to see some gators. Wasn’t sure how my 3yo would do but he did great! This was the perfect length for my young family. The captain was knowledgeable about the alligators and we saw plenty on the ride. It was always something I wanted to do and this time I got the chance! Would go again most definitely!!
