This was far better than one I had taken years ago. So much fun! I am over my group was 26 to over 50 and we all enjoyed it. Cannot say enough good things about captain Wayne and his wife and other staff.

I cannot recommend this experience highly enough - we had a fantastic two hours with Capt Wayne and Capt Joe. First off with were on the airboat with Wayne who took us all around the lake showing us wildlife and fauna, and providing us with interesting facts. We came back for just under an hour with Joe where we held... More

We went here with a family of 7, ages ranging from 16 to 53 and we all had a fabulous time. It was so refreshing to experience genuine people and animal lovers that aren't out to just take your money. The boat ride was great with Captain Wayne, who was funny and so knowledgable about the wildlife. After the boat... More

When I went to captain dress airboat tour I wasn't sure about holding the alligators but they were completely safe and there was no harm to be done. This tour was very educational and captain joe had an answer for every one of my questions. This was a great experience and I think that every one should come here.

We had a great time! Kids are preteens and thought it was cool. Our guide, Capt Wayne, was very knowledgeable and told great stories. The alligators were awesome!

Just spent an amazing time at Captain Freds. We got a lovely warm welcome and the introduction to holding the baby alligators was informative. The airboat ride was out of this world, lots of information about the wildlife. Speeding across the lake was breath taking. Would highly recommend this airboat tour.

A lot of Airbus tours advertised however would highly recommend Captain Fred's! We booked a tour in advance for 9am, the tours stop at 10am in the summer months as the water is too warm for the Alligators. We were greeted kindly and taken on a tour by Capt Wayne, he had great knowledge on the lake and the different... More

I've not done many airboat tours but I reckon this has got to be amongst the best. We turned up with our McDonald's breakfast and were invited to sit at the family dining table whilst Gator Lady Bonnie prepared the family lunch and Rachel washed the deck. I had never met these people and yet suddenly I was in their... More
