We are from Indiana and my husband and I wanted to take our two children on an airboat ride. We had such a great time! We also visited Disney World and the kids have not mentioned it since we left but can't wait to go back to visit Captain Mike! I felt like I learned more from him than any alligator reality show.

It was an excellent adventure and Mike was a great host. We got to see several gators which was interesting. At one point we were so close to an alligator that when we got to close you could see him turn in the water and got a full view of his entire body. Captain Mike knows a lot of information and I'm so glad we got to do this tour. Our small child was interested in the gators but she got the most excited in the marshes when all the frogs started jumping on the boat. She even grabbed one and tried to keep it as a pet. I loved that Mike pulled the boat over to take a picture of all of us. It was awesome definitely recommend it to everybody.

What an experience! To be honest, we really didn't know what to expect, but Capt. Mike provided us with an excursion we will never forget. Mike was incredibly knowledgable and helped separate gator fact from fiction. He also took the time to take pictures for us, and made time after the "ride" was over to answer any other questions we had; he even provided lunch suggestions to another family who rode with us! As a former teacher, I was impressed with Mike's professionalism and highly recommend his boat ride to anyone who plans on visiting the Melbourne area. Thank you, Mike, for helping us make a family memory that will last a lifetime.

Very accommodating... Fun!! We didn't get to see many alligators, but you cannot control nature!! It was hot that day and there were a couple of storms rolling in. We got rained on twice, but that made it even more interesting!! Capt Mike was very interesting to talk with and he was very knowledgable!! We would do it again!!

Captain Mike was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the wildlife and really enjoyed the 2 hour air boat tour. Was well worth the money! Our kids are still talking about it!!
