“A truly caring Guide !!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We toured Blue Cypress twice in 2012 with Capt. Lawrence Kyzer and were very impressed and pleased both times. We had three little granddaughters (youngest is 2) on our December 26 tour, and Lawrence was very patient, calm, accommodating and full of good humor. His knowledge of the history of the area and the many species of birds and the alligators is outstanding.
We highly recommend this jewel of a tour that is conveniently located not far west of Vero Beach.

“Exceptional Tour”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Lawrence was knowledeable of all the wildlife encountered during an exceptional tour and spoke easily about all. He is easy to talk and kid with. This is my seccond tour and by far the best. His tour is not totally planned allowing him to take advantage of everthing that happens to come up.

“Amazing! :)”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Wow, it was way more fun than I ever anticipated! Lawrence was the best tour guide. Very laid back. He has a great sense of humor, very personable and new the area very well. Even though we went on an overcast day he found us dozens of alligators, along with other wildlife and vegetation. We had an age group range from four to fifty and we all had huge smiles on our faces! I would definetly recommend this voyage to anyone! We drove ninety miles from our hotel and we all said it was definetly worth it!

“The BEST Airboat Tour in South Florida”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have known Lawrence Kyzer for over 20 years and have toured with him many times over those years - with friends, family - old & young. Everyone has always enjoyed the ride and Lawrence's knowledge of the local flora and fauna. Having been born and raised in Indian River County gives Lawrence a "leg up" because he KNOWS what's in those waters. I don't think I've ever been on a tour where we saw NO gators! He will definitely put you on them!!! Fun for families of all ages!

“Gators, gators and more!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Thanks Captain Lawrence for incredible photos and memories today; this year's photo calendar will be special. Your knowledge of the tropical ecosystem brought amazing depth to our journey through the world of the gators, birds, turtles, etc. watching the snake bird was like watching a movie of an unknown creature. We were especially pleased with your familiarity with the gators---you even knew about their location by their scraps of battle.
