“Excellent!”

Airboats & Alligators
Ranked #1 of 7 things to do in Immokalee
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 22, 2014

7 of us coming from Cape Coral had an awesome time --- We have been on few different air boat rides in the area -- This one by far blew them all away with the amount of wildlife we saw. We saw well over 30 gators, lots of birds, deer, and even a bobcat! The prices are reasonable and a lot closer to us than all the others.

Four of us departed from Estero, Fl. on a warm, sunny, April afternoon. After about a 45 minute car ride we parked at the Lake Trafford marina where the airboats are docked. Our boat left on time, fully loaded with 12 people. Our skipper circled the perimeter of the lake, navigating through reeds, water vegetation, and mud banks. We viewed a good number of colorful wading birds and hawks, however the alligator sightings were a disappointment. We saw many tiny alligators but few large ones as they seemed to hear us at a distance and duck under water. Our skipper tried to make commentary along the way but this was impossible due to the noise headsets everyone wore and the loud noise from the fan motor. The trip took about one hour and cost approx. $40 per person with all taxes included.

The ride was great. The guy that was driving the boat was 20 minuets late. The ride was 10 minutes early to be done. There was no information throughout the ride and it was all around a bad trip.

The lady who left before taking the ride must have been expecting a cruise line atmosphere. She missed the best airboat ride in Southwest Florida. Have done them all in the ten years I have been here. You see more wildlife on these trips than on any other ride.

Our family had a wonderful day with an excellent guide who was very respectful of all the wildlife.
We saw many gators ! I would not want to swim in this lake. We all enjoyed the trip and highly
recommend. Clean restrooms. Everything well managed. We look forward to our next visit.
