It was amazing. The airboat went really fast. My only problem was we had to wait a long time because 2 boats broke down. I would recommend it!

Thank you for the excellent review!! All our Airboats go through daily pre-trip inspections and regular preventative maintenance to insure the boat will perform flawlessly. We run these boats six days a week in a very unforgiving harsh environment. Even with the best care break downs can happen and they are usually unexpected. Thank you for taking your boat tour with us, we realize you could have just went to many of the other tours around us, instead you stayed, so thank you!


To Future Clients:
Sometimes Break downs do happen... However, sometimes what a customer might consider a "break down" is actually just us taking the time to re-inspect the Airboat (just like an airplane at the airport) We want to ensure a safe, quality ride for you and your family.

We followed the recommendations from Tripadvisor and on the whole were satisifed. The quality of the boat and captain were excellent. Our captain was both informative and courteous. Our three children loved the thrill of the ride (even after Disney and Universal Studios), the headsets and getting up close to two gators. Our only gripe was the timing of the tour. Ours lasted just over 45 minutes and yet was offered as an hour. We paid $190 for the experience and felt that this wasn't value for money. It was as if the guide was getting back early for lunch. We noted that later rides used the whole hour. Our advice would be; yes, go with this company but do not choose the 11am trip.

From the small boats to the on board headsets for communication you will find this business worth the price charged. We were able to see a couple gators, learn about the mangrove swamps, and enjoy the ride. This is a mangrove tour, not a grassland tour so if you are looking for tall blades of grass you will not find it here. Bart, our guide, was easy going and informative. Thanks!

We were a party of 10. Looked up the tour on our cell phones and received a discount of $12 on each group. We were loaded into 2 airboats and took off. The tour lasted close to an hour and the guides took us to places where alligators were known to hang out. We did see 2 of them. The rest of the time we traveled through Mangrove trees. The drivers are very skilled at making turns though these groves. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the outing.
