“Awesome!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

We were staying in the Orlando area, about an hour drive, nice drive, well worth it! Capt Joe was awesome! This was our first airboat experience. We saw a "monster" gator and a couple smaller ones, one was hanging out right near where the boar was docked! Tons of birds and ducks. We were fortunate enough to have the boat to ourselves, me, my husband and my 10 year old daughter, she loved it! We even got to hold a gator. I would definitely recommend Big Toho to anyone interested in an airboat ride.

“Our captain had over 50 years of experience, and lots of enthusiasm.”
Reviewed May 17, 2011

This airboat ride was a lot of fun. Captain Jim was great because he has so much experience. I think he said that he's spent 55 years on the lake as a fisherman and tour guide. He knew what was going to happen before it happened. We saw a mother alligator and her babies (literally 5 feet from the boat). The cypress trees were also beautiful. Bring a camera. The typical road into the park is closed, so you have to go in from another direction (just be persistent).

“Absolutely Awesome”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

We picked up a voucher booklet and there were three air-boat companies in there. We went on-line and booked the cheapest, Big Toho.
We were apprehensive about booking the cheapest, but unnecessarily so.
We left at 10am for an hour long trip, it was fantastic! The thrill of the air-boat skimming along, the gorgeous scenery, the sight of baby alligators in their natural habitat and the added bonus of seeing close up a huge full grown alligator.
Add to that the professionalism and friendless of our captain, then the opportunity after wards of having a photo with a real live alligator.
We all agreed it was the highlight of our trip

“Lots of gators!!!!”
Reviewed February 23, 2011

Went to Big Toho airboat tours due to its proximity to our condo in Orlando. The rates are very reasonable, 30-35 for an hour tour. Took a tour that left at noon. February is a great month to see gators, not too hot. Our captain took us all over the lake and was extremely informative. In all we saw over 20 gators ranging in size from 1 foot to over 9 feet. The tour was great and holding the gator afterwards was awesome too. I'd recommend this outfit to anyone who wants a good hour on the lake to see lots of gators. Great job guys.
