“Great fun for all ages.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Thanks for a great ride today. Had a blast. Our daughters both had a big smile on their face as the airboat started up. We ended up seeing 4-5 gators, birds and a lovely scenic Everglades. Can't wait to go back. Holding the baby gator was great too!!! ;)

“Had a blast!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I have been our your boat rides three or four times and love them. The prices are reasonable and the ride last for about an hour. Your captains are very knowledgable and the staff is always friendly. It is interesting to learn about the different wildlife, gators, mangroves and the sawgrass and be able to see them up close. Looking forward to our next ride!!

“Well Worth the Money $$!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Well worth the $40 each we paid! We saw about 4 gators up close and many different varieties of birds. Our captain was knowledgable about the wildlife and stopped when someone spotted something interesting. The boat is loud and it can be windy so bring along a hoodie. We had purchased the ear plugs but did not use them.....but now with a bit of a blocked ear from the ride, I would recommend using them! Overall a great experience and would recommend it!

“Great Airboat Ride!!!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

While visiting friends in the Fort Meyers area, we decided we needed to cross one more thing off our bucket list and take an airboat ride. It was fabulous. We loved it. Our friend, who lives here, said this as the best airboat ride she'd taken. Our guide was very knowledgable and shared information about the ecosystem,as well as the wildlife we saw. A fun ride!!!

“Three times and still going back!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I am a snowbird for the past 5 years. In the beginning we took visitors on other airboats. Finally found this one and we keep going back. The price is reasonable and if you visit the website you can print a $10 off coupon for groups of 3 or more. You are out for about an hour. It's a smaller airboat than some of the large ones. That enhances the experience. Just took my friend's 28 year old son who told us he wasn't really psyched about going on an airboat ride.His words afterwards-that was awesome. Saw gators and lots of different birds. For the last 2 times we went with Captain MIke. He gives a good ride, is respectful of the wildlife and very informative. Happy Birthday Captain Mike.
