Fantastic! This trip combines the thrill of an airboat ride with the experience of seeing up close the wildlife and flora of the swamps. A highly knowledgeable captain took us to see several alligators, some with their young, and all sorts of birds. The swamp scenery was amazing and to speed over the vegetation with hardly any water under the... More

Had a great time. Saw several mature gators on a "slow gator day." Captain Dale was great. Very informative. Answered all of our questions. Couldn't get much closer without holding one. The aviation headsets are great as well.

Lynn was an awesome tour guide. The gators may have been hiding but the trip was still worth every penny!

Entering this trip, my family and I were thinking we were going to see a lot of gators, based on previous reviews. Our 90 minute trip was a lot of fun, but we only saw one adult alligator and a couple little ones. Our guide captain Andy provided great information. I would probably do this again but would hope to... More

Highly recommend this experience and company! Captain Dale was as authentic as they come - extremely knowledgeable about the boat, the wildlife and area. The air boat is an experience in itself - totally exhilarating and neat. We must have seen 30-60 alligators of every size - it was truly spectacular! Captain Dale knew the best places to find the...

Truly amazing experience! It is one thing to watch documentaries on TV but to see wildlife like we did in their natural environment is quite something else. Fantastic time and would highly recommend this wonderful opportunity if you are visiting the area. Captain Dale Thompson, having grown up in the area, holds a wealth of information about the animals and... More

We had a fantastic air boat ride which was much better than expected. It was very personal, only 4 on the boat with a maximum of 6. No big crowds and a lot of chance to liaise with the skipper. The skipper, Captain Dale Thompson, was born and bred in the area and spent his whole life there so we... More
