We went on an alligator tour with "Captain Chris". First of all, he doesn't speak loudly enough, and so we had trouble hearing much of what he was saying (and that was with removing the ear muffs). More than that, he didn't have an adequate amount of fuel for the 90 minute trip and determined that we might run out, therefore we cut the trip a little bit short and due to his concern he road very closely to another air boat, trying to get the attention of that Captain to tell him we might run out of gas. Due to this, everyone on board was getting wet due to water droplets being sprayed back on us from the other boat. He never received the attention of the Captain in front of us, and we made it back on fumes. We didn't see any gators worth mentioning, and we arrived back wet in 65 degree weather. I had pretty high expectations due to the ratings, but was rather disappointed.

Took the 90 min tour which was perfect for kids (ages 5 to 11). Capt Scott was very informative on the ecosystem and expertly located some huge gators. We saw a couple of very endangered bird species and lots of waterfoul. Capt Scott was also very good with the kids giving us thrills in a very safe manner. Highly recommend this activity if you have time.

I highly recommend the 2 hour boat ride. We saw all types of birds and huge alligators. The wildlife education is so necessary and cannot be beat. There is so much natural beauty to be seen an appreciated on the water. Take the entire family, especially kids so they learn to appreciate the natural world.

Captain Kenny (Ken Gift) is the absolute best and you must make sure to ride with him. Captain Ken knows where the alligators are and he is an encyclopedia of knowledge about the lake, gators, birds, fauna and trees. He was amazing. The boat ride will make you see the need for strong conservation efforts.

The boat is super comfortable and there is water on board.

Worth every penny. I highly recommend it. Do something out of the ordinary in Orlando. You won't regret it! Marsh Landing is the best!

Thank you for the great review. We are not just an airboat ride, we are, first and foremost, an Eco-Tour. Our captains enjoy educating their guests along with a little excitement on the airboat. Hope to have you join us again.

We just had a perfect ending to our trip to Orlando. We booked a 90 minute airboat ride with Captain Ken. We wanted to see alligators and we were not disappointed!! We saw adults ones and their babies. We also saw many different birds.
Ken was very interesting and very informative. We took the 4:00pm tour and got to watch the sun go down which was absolutely beautiful out on the water. We all would highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Ken Gift for a wonderful afternoon!
