Would highly recommend the airboat tour. Our captain was very knowledgeable on all the different species of birds. Sandhill cranes, bald eagle, ospreys, some kind of white bird that eats shrimp and they turn pink because of it. Many more types of birds that I can't remember. We also saw close to a dozen gators. Even a couple of big... More

We took the ~30 minute airboat ride with our large family group over Thanksgiving. We has 10 people in our group ranging in age from 19 to 80 years old. Everyone had a blast! We are Brevard residence and had previously taken an airboat ride in south brevard. It was also fun but Twister would be my recommendation. The scenery... More

I took my whole family including 3 kids ages 10, 8, and 2. The airboat ride was exhilarating and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the environment and wildlife. Totally worth it!

I've wanted to do the airboat thing for a while, and since I was visiting Florida recently, and my son was with me, I decided it was time. After a google search I quickly found Twister Airboat Rides about 40 minutes east of Orlando. There were lots of reviews for the restaurant at this facility, but we didn't eat there..... More

We are a family of 6, from ages of 58 to age 6. We didn't see many alligators as water was high & weather hot but saw lots of birds and were able to go thru the grasses just as us older ones remembered from the tv shows in the 60's. Grandsons loved it.

We visited here as part of our tour with Florida Dolphin Tours and had a wonderful morning. Got the real feeling of floating on the water and going though the everglades, got to see a few alligators. Our captain was fun and great at pointing out all the wildlife from birds to gators. If you have always wanted to do,... More

Our captain was very knowledgable and fun. Boat ride was exciting. We saw 8 gators, along with lots of birds, bald eagle nest, a herd of cattle that live on land in middle of swamp. Very interesting!

We went here on a cruise ship excursion but this was an amazing day. It was fairly warm and we were warned that we might not see much but boy were they wrong. It was an amazing trip in and out of water/grass seeing wildlife. After your trip you get gator bites (free) oh and be sure to tip your... More
