We had a great time with Captain Bob on our airboat tour! We had 3 adults and 2 kids - Captain Bob was great with explaining the eco system in the river and knows his history about the area! Saw gators and lots of other wildlife! Highly recommend this tour. Don't forget to eat at the Blue Gator before or after! Food, drinks and service was top notch!

The boat seats 6 people. And the setting is very Floridian. We were hoping to see wildlife and have a peaceful experience. However, the emphasis seemed to be on speed and noise, even requiring head phones. All the wild life was scared away by the air boat. We saw a few turtles when we slowed down but that was all. There were a few homes along the river, and I imagine they are not happy when they see or hear us coming. We thought it was a bit over priced at $55 pp.

We were in Dunnellon, FL for a family vacation and decided to go on an airboat tour of the area. I have never been on an airboat before so we decided it to give it a try. It was a hour tour ($50 pp) and it was so much fun once we got out of the no wake zones Capt Bob opened it up and we were ripping down the Withlacoochee River. It was so much fun and we even saw an alligator on the way. Well worth the time and money!

Friends in from England, U.K. this was a very good experience. The Captain and his his Mate was both very knowledgable about the islands, and the Sponge Industry. Highly reccommend.

I'm sure that the customers have a great ride. But, us river residents have to bear with the extremely loud noise that rips away the peace and serenity that we all love.
