Fun time

Had a good time gator hunting. The kids absolutely loved it. Our captain was well versed in the area and finds the wildlife for you.

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.

Made it a family trip with 8 of us. Guide was Charlie and he was super. Shared a lot of information about the swamp/wetlands. Saw osprey, cranes, alligators and had a very informative adventure. Owner, Bill, is a really nice, friendly person also.

We had the best time this morning with Captain Brian sharing the sights of the Blue Cypress Recreation Area with us ! He was on time and well worth the hour spent. We saw alligators, osprey, spanish moss, dragonflies, several others birds and perhaps best of all, a mam alligator sitting in her nest! We had a wonderful time and... More

My daughter's soccer team and I recently reserved a 1 and 1/2 hour tour. My daughter had a soccer tournament all week and we had all but one day that we DIDN'T have to be at the soccer field. We really wanted to do something in Florida that we do not have in California. Booking a tour by Gator Bait... More

Brian made this the absolute best adventure our 10 year old grandson had while visiting us with his mother. Gators, high speed and zooming up the side of the lake brought forth lots of laughter. There was even a scream when a gator propelled itself across a small island and almost landed on our boat! We were given lots of... More
