I have several friends who have done the other airboats and said this was the best! We saw at least 100 gators, different birds, turtles, and creatures (including snakes) from this airboat. It was worth every penny!

We did an hourlong ride and saw at least fifty alligators, as well as birds and the beautiful plants and scenery of Lake Trafford. The tour is very nice no matter where you sit — a unique feature of airboats is the seating, which provides good views from every spot. Additionally, the store that the airboats depart from has a...

Having never been on an airboat and being fascinated with alligators, this could not have been a better experience. The airboat ride was lots of fun. We skimmed over 6 inches of water through the growth while counting almost 50 alligators. Our captain was very knowledgeable and accommodating, stopping so we could take pictures and pointing out some rare birds.... More

I can highly recommend this activity❗❗Ski makes jokes and takes the cash and Greg was the guide❗The boat is very comfortable and stable and ear protection is provided. The ride is fun filled and so many birds and alligators galore. Some little and some huge❗❗It was an adventure and a learning trip all in one❗

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
