Captain Jed's Airboats was a fun adventure! The airboat was clean and the tour was a full 2 hours. Jed took us on many tributaries of the St John River to point out young alligators as well as mature ones, various birds, plant life, Native American points of interest, and answered our many questions about Florida wildlife. Jed and his wife were personable and kind. Don't judge from the outside of the building as they are still in process of updating it. After all, it's just where you do the paperwork. Also, road construction made getting to their driveway difficult. If it's still going on when you visit, be sure to call as you get to the bridge construction and they will direct you.

We had the absolute pleasure of touring the river with Captain Joe. Not only did we see an abundance of gators and other wildlife, he educated us about what we were hearing and seeing. His love and respect for nature made this trip a truly memorable one. I can't recommend him enough. This is not just a job to him and that makes all the difference!

My family recently took a ride with captain Joe. Most of us havent spent significant time in Florida so we were truly amazed at the wildlife and landscape we were seeing on the St. john river. Even my uncle who has lived in Central Florida for years was blown away by our experience. The captain clearly new the river like the back of his hand, navigating inlets and parts of the water that few people seemingly explore. We hardly saw any other boaters on our trip. Numerous great viewings of alligators birds and even a few manatees made for an amazing and memorable trip. I would absolutely recommend captain Jeds airboat rides to anyone!
