If you're visiting from the UK, and you've never done an Airboat tour before, but it's always been on your dream list of "must do" things, (or maybe you've done one before but been a bit disappointed) then let me wholeheartedly recommend this one to you. I promise you that it is the tour you have been dreaming about. Yes, there are many other tours available, (and I have done them), but this one is far far better. Why? Well first off you are on proper airboat with a great elevated viewing position. It's a smaller boat so it can, and it does, access areas that larger tours can't. Secondly, this is a personal tour by an extremely knowledgeable local guide, which makes it unique. Check out their website. Rest assured that booking is very easy and these are lovely people to deal with. Trust me, this IS the airboat tour that you have been dreaming about an it WILL meet, if not surpass, your expectations (just read the other reviews on here). This is the second time we have been with them and it will not be the last.

Had a great time on this tour. Denny was so accommodating with weather changes and keeping us updated to moving our time back so we could do this tour. Capt. Mike's knowledge of the river was from growing up there with his family. If you want to see the Saint Johns river and a whole lot of gators, birds and we even saw deer, this is the tour for you. Thoroughly enjoyed this and will be back again. Thank you Captain Mike and Denny for a wonderful late afternoon airboat experience.

Morning Kendall, Terri and Lisa, we did not mind making any changes for the tour. In Florida we never know about the showers so if we can we will change the times. We thank you for being understanding also. Mike and I were glad y'all enjoyed the Eco Tour and history of our area. Thank you for taking time to write such a great review. Hope we see you in the future.

Captain Mike gave us a great tour of Saint Johns River with lots of history and details. On our way out we spotted a calf wadding in the water. 80 mins later we saw that the calf was still standing there and we thought stuck in the mud. Captain Mike went into the river knee deep to rescue the calf.
As for the alligators, we saw tons and enjoyed the comfortable ride with the wind through our hair and great knowledge and personality of Captain Mike. Great adventure and highly recommend this to anyone who wants to see the REAL Florida.

We had an outstanding time along the river from before sunset to well after. We saw plenty of gators and many birds. River was low but that is nature. Capt. Mike and Mia did an excellent job of touring us about for photographs and some quiet time after dark to just soak in the sites and sounds. Definitely a must do to experience the St Johns.
