At 10:30 am with 78F temperatures and sunny skies, we had a great adventure with a guide who looked like Crocodile Dundee and who had 13 years experience. He knew right where the alligators would be sunning themselves and told great stories in a very entertaining way. It was quite exhilarating to be in a speeding airboat and then make 360 degree turns. $36 a person was a great price with a total of 15 passengers.

Me, my husband and our 7 year old son loved this gator tour. The staff was extremely friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about gators as well as other wildlife and plant life in the area. The air boat captain was funny and he let our son get in the co pilot seat to see better. (My son got scared up there but it was really nice of him to do that) We would 100% recommend this attraction and we would definitely do it again!!!!

I wanted something fun to do for my 3 boys since it was a bit cold for swimming on spring break. Airboat Adventures was the perfect choice. Our first day was cancelled due to high winds, but the company communicated well & got us booked for the next day (4/9/22) The building looks a little rough when you arrive, but once in, you get to hold and pet a little gator. Then you drive a short distance to the boat ramp, and zoom off with an entertaining captain. The kids loved the high speed boat, & we did a few spins that got huge smiles and squeals (even from the adults 😜.) We turned down a more narrow creek and slowed to look for gators & other wildlife. The gators were shy that day, but we had fun looking for them, and our captain told us all about them, plus other animals and plant life on the banks. My boys said “we need to go on more boat rides!” It was a great time and a wonderful memory for us.

My husband, daughter, and two grandsons loved this outing. The boys talked about how fast the boat went. My husband was amazed with the driver’s knowledge of the area being able to navigate and turn on a dime. They saw an alligator on the trip and said it was really cool. Would recommend this outing to anyone who enjoys a fun adventure

when we booked our trip I explained that I have a son with anxiety and he may not go thru with the ride if he got nervous, When we arrived Capt. Mike started interacting with my son and put him right at ease, drove the boat to ease my son into it and before long my son was smiling having the time of his life!!! Will definitely return next vacation and repeat trip, will also recommend to all my friends. Thanks for the Amazing family memories!!!

While I was pretty excited about this adventure before our trip down to PCB, I was amazed at how much fun this ended up being. We had a 5 year old, a 12 year old and my wife & I in attendance. From checking in, to seeing the animals on display out back, to an amazingly fun and informative fan boat trip, this whole thing surpassed my expectations. While we did not have a whole lot of luck in locating any gators out in the wild (time of year with females nesting), there were no complaints by anyone on the trip. Our fan boat was amazing, and the mix of 180 and even a 360 flat spin in the water kept us all in great spirits. This is totally worth doing and the price point makes it really great.

Perfect Adventure of the day!!
Shelly the Hostess started out our adventure with an informative and interactive show with LIL CHOMPS a 2-4 year old alligator (and she explains why they don't know the exact age of alligators if they are born in the wild). Shelly let everybody hold and pet Lil Chomps and that little gator was so laid back he fell asleep a couple of times. He really liked to be petted!! We also saw some gorgeous parrots and cute turtles and some more little alligators.
After Shelly you head down to the river and load up onto the airboat. Capt Mike was the best airboat Capt out there! We didn't get to see any wild alligators but it wasn't for the lack of trying. We did get to see jumping fish, ducks, osprey and one little plucky snail that hitched a ride with us. Capt Mike did many 360's in the river getting us a little wet and making us laugh.
It was a great day...will do it again next time we are in PCB.

We had the best time ever on our airboat adventure. What a hidden treasure and super affordable with 5 people in our group. Sherrie was fantastic showing us “chomps” and the other alligators and we even got to pet the little guys! Then we met with Captain Paul and he gave us a awesome airboat ride and some wicked 360’s....we saw all sorts of wildlife including gators and osprey. Highly recommend as a must see!!!! Jack Groomes

We went to Airboat Adenture with my wife and son (3 years old). Everyone was super friendly, really felt like those people love what they're doing. Boat trip was exciting and Captain was giving a lot of information about the area. Would do it again anytime!

No Alligator sightings. Of course, there can be no guarantee of seeing alligators. Fortunately, they have a brief (20ish minute) "demonstration" were they bring out their captive alligators and let people hold and touch them. My 4 yr lost interest about 10 min into the ride. My 5 yr old last about 25 minutes. We signed up for a morning ride (8am I think) - there wasn't much out there, but it was a beautiful boat ride! As far as sightings go, we saw a jellyfish, some snails, and a bird of prey. Pretty unimpressive in that regard. Overall, it was an hour of a beautiful boat ride that the young children did not appreciate.
