My son booked this tour, so I didn't know what to expect. Captain Chris was waiting for us, as promised and we promptly took off for our "Sunset Cruise." (We did have to climb into the boat and up onto chairs, so I would not recommend this tour for those with limited mobility.)

We wore ear protection provided by the captain, so points of interest were pointed out by gestures, then discussed during the breaks we took to quietly take in the nature and beauty of our surroundings. I had inquired about feral pigs, so the captain made a point to have us stop and check out some trails of the pigs, deer, and other land animals. We saw a few alligators in the 8 foot range, some smaller ones, and numerous varieties of waterfowl.

The Captain was a wonderful storyteller and gave numerous accounts of local history and natural phenomena.
The water was fresh and the wonderful aroma of orange groves filled the air. (I felt like I was living "Soaring over California" while in Florida in real life!) The water was still so it reflected the clouds and sky like it was a mirror!
Thanks Chris, for a wonderful afternoon. We will be back to further explore wild and natural Florida!

This was by far the highlight of our trip. Captain Chris was an awesome guide and he was such a delight! We saw lots of gators, ospreys, spoonbills, turtles, and even had a deer racing alongside us in the marsh. It was such a great experience, I will always recommend it for people visiting the area. There was never a dull moment and it was well worth the money and then some! Way above my expectations!

I decided that after numerous trips to Florida it was time to try out an airboat ride with my family. Little did I know that this would be probably the most incredible time we've had down there yet! Captain Chris took my wife, my two sons(12 & 7 ) and I on the most beautiful, fun, and informative trip through the marshes of Florida. Captain Chris spent plenty of time telling us the history of the area, pointing out the incredible wildlife, and taking us to some of the most scenic places we could have ever imagined. We were able to see Bald eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, even a trio of Whooping Cranes. Oh..Did I mention the GATORS!?! WOW!! We saw numerous gators! Everything from 6-7' gators to little hatchlings! My kids were floored!!
I am a professional photographer whose specialty is wildlife and landscape photography and when Chris saw the cameras come out he was very good about affording me plenty of chances to shoot some of my favorite images from Florida to date!
I wish all my friends here in Michigan could get the chance to take a tour with Captain Chris and the Old Florida Airboat company. Hopefully this review will help you decide to choose them, they are an incredible company.
One more thing to mention. Captain Chris's boat is NOT one of those big giant 12 person boats. His is smaller which means he can take you where the others can't! It also means he can cater to YOU and not sacrifice quality of tour for quantity of riders. Keep that in mind. When you choose the Old Florida tour it is like having your own airboat!

A great experience. We were looking for a classic type of air boat. We were very pleased. The boat seated 3 in addition to the pilot. It was powered by a Continental aircraft style engine that provided more than enough power for an impressive ride. The captain knew the area and his business very well. On numerous occasions during, the ride, he shut the engine down to explain what we were seeing, took pictures us and answered any questions that we had. The ride lasted more than 2 hours but the time flew.

I will definitely recommend this to my friends

This is by far the best airboat tour you will ever take. We went to areas that are still Natural Florida! You don't get to see this type of area in other boats. Captain Chris is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area and it's conservation. A must see if you are really interested in nature.

Captain Chris not only met, but exceeded his trip advisor reviews. We took my 6 year old son for an amazing day of gator viewing and fishing. His knowledge of the area, stories, and warm personality made our day together the highlight of our trip. Looking forward to hanging out with him again in the future.
