There were 3 adults and a 7 year old in our group and we all had a blast. Our captain was very nice and knowledgeable about the local wildlife. We got to see several gators and even some baby ones. They have a couple "baby" gators at the place that you can hold at the end of the tour also

Had family from out of town and decided to try something none of us had ever done. Our ages ran from 12 to retired. Everyone enjoyed the trip...learning about plants..birds..alligators while riding on Airboat hittting trails. I would recomend Captain Freds for any age group.

He knew exactly where to find all of the wildlife, and even had names for the critters we got to see. He had a great sense of humour as well, and it was fun to hold the baby alligators. I... More

Had a great time on our airboat tour with Captain John. We were able to see lots of wildlife (birds, snakes, and gators) despite the cooler weather. We got to hold and learn about two alligators at the end of the boat ride to top off our tour. The entire experience was very educational and a great way to spend... More
