“This rules”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

First, the guy who runs it is awesome! He could not have been kider or more informative. He got us going as soon as we arrived and he seriously knows what he's talking about. I would also advise going in the early morning, we saw so much more than you would in the heat of the day. I'll be back for another visit during alligator hunting season since he does trips for that too.

“a MUST with Captain Lawrence!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Our family had an amazing time with the knowledgeable & exciting Captain Lawrence! He is more than willing to answer any questions you may have and even spin the boat around as many times as you need him to so you can get the perfect picture. We were amazed at his knowledge and love for the outdoors & wildlife....definitely a Florida Cracker! If that's not enough he's got one heck of a southern accent and not too bad to look at ladies! We will most definitely be back!!

“Always a Great Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Lawrence is one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to the animals and plants living in The Saint Johns watershed. When friends or family come down to visit us we always take them on his trip to show them the sights. My wife and I always look forward a trip even though we gone with him many times cause there always is something different to see.

“Loved it, Loved it, Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

The airboat rides was one of the most fun times I've ever had. I'd put it right up there with a helicopter ride I took in Hawaii! The sunrise tour was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing all of the birds and the alligators start their day. Even saw a few baby alligators. Captain Lawrence is professional, knowledgable and fun! I can't wait to go again. Highly recommended!
