We did it despite the strong windy. Captain Bill did a great job of keeping it moving and I’m glad I went!!

We had a group of friends in town. The Gator Bait Airboat experience was super terrific. Captain Bill was fabulous and entertaining. Captain Bill is extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife at the preserve....calling a lot of them by his nicknames for them. We saw loads of gators sunning themselves. I highly recommend the Gator Bait Airboat experience. And don't forget Cindy who made this all happen for us. She was very personable on the phone when I called to make our reservations.

Had a great time! We took a tour on a Friday in January. It was a little cool especially when the boat was at full speed. There were four of us together and the boat held 12, three rows of 4. We wore long sleeves and shorts and were fine. They provide ear muff headphones so you can hear the captain point out wildlife and discuss the environment. Speaking of wildlife we seen plenty of gators! Since it was a little chilly the alligators were sunning themselves. The guide was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions. Our tour was 40 minutes long. We all had a fun time. Although we were almost close enough to touch the gatoes we all felt safe in the boat. I definitely recommend this tour.

We had an excellent time with Captain Bill! We brought our grandma, who is scared of gators and of airboats, and she had such a great time!! She felt completely safe and was so entertained by all the information Captain Bill shared. We saw so many gators but what we loved the most was everything we learned about the Florida wildlife and the exciting airboat ride. We have already recommended Gator Bait and will continue recommending to everyone! We can't wait to go back.
