“Swamp 101”

Eaglebay Airboat Rides
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Never had been on an airboat ride before and didn't know what to expect. Captain Troy showed us the ropes, taking us around the swamp looking at birds, all kinds of flowers and swamp plants as well as a mamma alligator and babies. The airboat glides across all kinds of vegetation and shallow water, allowing for a unique, up-close and personal experience within the swamp. As advertised, the ride was about 45 minutes for about $75 for two adults, cheaper with more adults. The ride was loud even with the earphones they give you. Definitely a "must do" if you are in the Okeechobee area or near a swamp.

Saw their sign and stopped in. Spoke to the clerk and paid our 75.00 for two people to take the tour. Worth every penny! Our guide arrived about 10 minutes later and took us for a ride. Oh what a ride it was! We saw several gators along with several species of birds. Plenty of time to take pictures. Capt. Troy was very personable and fun and even took a few photos of us for keepsakes. Tour lasted about an hour.

Called several area airboat tour companies and got voice mail or the run around.
We took a chance and just showed up at Eaglebay. The clerk called and the guide showed up within 20 minutes. The tour was an hour, cost $75 and worth every penny. Best airboat tour ever!
