I've been on other airboat rides in the Everglades and we didn't see me ch wild life or gators. Staying with my cousins, they recommended this tour. I had my doubts as it is on a lake, but trusted their opinion. We were not disappointed! There are mangroves and waters plants just like the Everglades. If you like birds, you... More

This was a great experience for kids and adults alike. The office and store are real rural Florida with live bait, caged parrots, snakes and a cute little girl behind the counter. Some locals sitting on the porch round it out. The airboat guide was very knowledgeable and polite. The 45 minute ride was exciting with lots of alligators and... More

Just had our 7th or 8th airboat ride here and they have never disappointed. For the kids or grandkids lots of alligators. For the adults lots of gators plus birds and plants. Every captain is very knowledgeable and informative. Learn something new every time. Will always go back.

Excellent hour + on an airboat. This shallow lake seems ideal for alligators, birds and turtles. Captain Grant took us through the extreme shallows to see a large (11 - 12 foot) gator, numerous medium size and baby (1 foot) gators. All in all we probably seen over 50 gators. Birds galore including a bald eagle. A bonus is the... More

We decided to do our airboat tour with this company instead of doing it on our day long drive along Route 40. We were staying in Bonita Springs and this was a short but scenic drive through the countryside. I was able to get a reservation time for the next morning, and I am guessing that mid-January was not a... More

We visited Lake Trafford while visiting family in Port Charlotte, and decided to give this place a try rather than driving all the way to the Everglades. It was a super experience for the whole family. The lake is shallow, mostly open water, but the majority of the shoreline has fairly thick growth of reeds for a couple hundred meters... More

I booked a trip in the morning and they gave me a 2:45 appointment. I arrive there at 2:00. A bus pulled in along with a Tour van. We waited for 45 minutes and when it came time to board the boat they obviously gave our seats away to the tour van. They said that they had come out and... More

Airboats and Alligators was a fantastic tour for nature and more. We were surprised at the amount of alligators in Lake Trafford as I lost count. Grant our tour guide was very informative about the natural aspects of the tour and pointed out different varieties from plants to tree to birds. There were displays of reptiles including snakes, turtles and... More

Lake Trafford offers plenty of alligators and birds in addition to good fishing, but the airboat ride is an excellent to see the first two. The track is in the reeds and swamps surrounding the lake, and you will be sure to see both birds and alligators. It is an unhurried tour with a knowledgeable local guide. In the office... More
