Located on the beautiful Kissimmee River in Lake Wales Fl. We take you on a airboat adventure thru the vast swamps and marshes of the Kissimmee River and Dead River. We go where only a 6 passanger airboat would dare go. Come visit and see for yourself the true Florida. Our USCG Licensed Master Captains are NATIVE FLORIDIANS, who were born and raised in the swamp! We know all the good spots to visit, to see all wildlife. The headwaters of the Everglades have to offer! Call for your reservation today.

We booked an airboat tour at the last minute and Captain Carl could not have been more accomodating. His knowledge of the wildlife and habitations of the area is not only incredible but the way in which he imparts it with his easy southern style is refreshing. Saw many, many gators, but they were not the highlight--as there were too... More

We decided to do an air boat tour at the last minute and it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip! These guys made time for us on short notice and shared their passion and knowledge of the area and wildlife. We saw several alligators of various sizes, birds, otters, wild cows, and more. We enjoyed our... More

The outfits that do air-boat tours of the area go to pretty much the same places in the same kind of boats and do the same things. What separates "just a boat ride" from an educational and enjoyable adventure is the individual guide you go with. When we did the Alligators Unlimited tour we went with Dave. He seemed a... More

He brought us to all of the best spots around the area and was extremely knowledgeable about all of the wildlife. If you go on a tour at Alligators Unlimited I would recommend trying... More

Within a few minutes of leaving the docks we were treated to animal sighting. Captain Worm slowed to give us information on everything we pointed out! He has a great sense of humor and lots of information on the area! I am planning to another trip with friends and we are definitely taking them there! Anyone looking for a great... More

While visiting in The Villages, I was looking for an airboat ride that wasn't just a lake ride in an airboat packed to 20-30 people and this was it. I wasn't originally able to get the day I wanted, but something opened up and Cap'n Worm immediately followed up with me as promised, so I was able to get the... More
