“Best Airboat Ride Ever”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

We took the Florida Cracker Airboat Ride today and it was the best. With everyone wearing headphones with mics it was easy to hear the description and commentary. It was easy to ask questions and hear the questions and answers of other riders. As a long time Vero resident our guide Lawrence Kyzer is very knowledgable of the area,including the history, the ecology,the plants and animals living in the area. He has an obvious love of the region and it shows in the details he shared with us. We saw lots of alligators and many species of birds. We also learned a lot about the geography and vegetation of the area. It was a wonderful ride. Thanks Lawrence.

“Captain Lawrence was amazing”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Capt. Lawrence was amazing. I have been on another air boat ride at this same place and Capt. Lawrence out did them ten fold. I also took my mother, 83, my father, 78, and a 72 year old aunt. Lawrence was a charm. My 72 year old aunt fell in love with him. Lawrence knows so much more than the other guides and he is so friendly. LOVED IT! Will do it again. Do it!

“Our airboat ride was both thrilling and interesting!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Our airboat ride was fun and very interesting! Lawrence the Guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to keep all ages entertained and interested. We had no idea what to expect and came away with a much better understanding and history of the area. Will definitely do it again!

“The best airboat tour there is!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

What an excellent experience. I have taken a tour with Captain Lawrence twice now and what a tour it is! Lawrence knows all the special spots where the gators like to hang out and is extremely knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna you may see along the way. Born and raised in the area, if you have any questions, he more than likely knows the answer. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone, young or old and am looking forward to going back again!
