A must do in the Vero Beach / Port St. Lucie area. Captain Bill knows his marsh and everything that makes its home in the marsh. Do the Swamp Rocket Adventure for a personalized , up and close Eco experience. A great way to start the day in Florida.

This is a trip I have wanted to do since watching Gentle Ben at home in Scotland as a kid and boy, it did not disappoint. Friendly, knowledgeable and skilful crew found the perfect balance of fun with the airboats and education about the conservation area they work in and which they are clearly proud of. We saw gators, fish,... More

The air boat ride starts 40 minutes west of Vero Beach. Not difficult to find but make sure to leave plenty of time as they love their traffic lights in Florida! The ride lasts for an hour and takes place on a man made lake teaming with wildlife. We saw plenty of alligators, cranes and other birds. We took the... More

Being a local we have many visitors so we have done every airboat ride. This one was without a doubt the absolute best. Did the small boat $50, super fast, through the grass, through the reeds and on the land too! Did the second morning tour before it got too hot and saw lots of wildlife, beautiful lotus flowers and... More

We had a blast going out on the Gator Bait boat tour. Our family of 8 ages 6 - 56 had a great time. We saw a lot of gators of many sizes and beautiful Florida wildlife. The captain was sure to share his knowledge and awesome facts while navigating through the waters. The boat held 15 people comfortably.
