Old Florida Airboat Tours and Guide Service
Reviewed December 26, 2016

What a treat we had this afternoon with Chris. We cannot imagine having this type of airboat ride and tour without him......he is passionate and knowledgeable about this area, the wildlife and the flora. We all learned lots of interesting new facts and enjoyed his genuine and entertaining way of sharing his knowledge.... including showing us some of his favorite alligators!

Chris is wonderful and so passionate about this part of Florida that he loves and has spent many years exploring. This was not just a boat ride but a whole experience and he was so great explaining to the kids as well as the adults. Show a lot of wildlife. Can't wait to go back.

After living in Florida for 25+ years, I have finally gone on an airboat ride and to my own surprise, I enjoyed it immensely. After winning the trip in a raffle and unsuccessfully trying to trade it in for a fishing charter, (nothing personal, Chris) my family and I finally decided to take the trip while on spring break.
We showed up a few minutes before our scheduled time and Captain Chris was ready and waiting. After a brief overview of safety measures, etc, we were on our way. Within minutes, we realized we were going to see a part of Flotida that we don't see everyday living in South Florida (Stuart, to be exact). This was not your typical airboat 'bus' that holds 20 people, it was the four of us and Captain Chris in the middle of nature. In our 2+ hour tour, we experienced distinctly different areas in the marsh with everything from sawgrass to cypress, baby gators, medium gators and BIG gators, and so many types of birds it was impossible to count them. We even had the opportunity to wet a line and each catch our first bass.
Captain Chris' knowledge of the marsh and wetlands and Florida history is impressive, as is his personality and professionalism. From the minute we met him, we felt we were in for a great day and we were right, Chris did everything to perfection!
I would not hesitate to recommend Old Florida Airboat Tours to anyone, it was awesome.
Thank you, Captain Chris!!!

Captain Chris was great! He knew everything about the area, very considerate to family members, and very funny! He showed us some gators, took us fishing, and showed us what it was like to experience old Florida! Instead of a half hour racetrack tour he took his time to explain the marsh and what was in it and why it was important. We encountered many species of wildlife along the way including gators, bass, birds, and many other things. He took us to several unique spots and as awesome as he was he took off his boots and the next thing you know he is in the water taking pictures of me and my family. I would recommend this tour to history lovers, families with children, and people looking to live the swamps of Florida!
