If you look on TripAdvisor you'll find that all the Air Boat tours from Blue Cypress are very highly rated so I suspect that you'll be fine with any of them, but for what it's worth this was the one we chose and it lived up to its "Excellent" reputation. Very knowledgeable guide who made an immediate connection with our... More

This was about an hours drive from Sandpiper bay Club Med but well worth it. The guy has been around alligators for years and it shows, knew where to go and found us some great photo opportunities along the way.

This was a great activity for our teenagers! We took the hour boat tour and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it! Kenny was a great host and was very knowledgeable on all of the beauties of nature! We saw many birds of many species, alligators galore and beautiful trees, plants and flowers!

Travelling with reluctant teenager and younger son, so we were a little late. Kenny waited and even took a photo as soon as we got there. The genial nature, knowledge, skill, and kindness to kids especially won all over. Even the teen. The water is alive with a diverse nature of flora, aquatic life, insects, birds and of course gators.... More

Following the recommendation of another operator who was on vacation, we called Captain Kenny on short notice and arranged a tour near Vero Beach. The captain was very accommodating and was at the boat ramp waiting for us when we arrived. His... More

We had a great time on the Marsh Beast! Captain Kenny did his best to find some gators for us to see! This trip was great for our 10 & 6 yr old and we will definitely recommend this to anyone!
