“Really a great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Hi, visiting the Sebastian/Vero Beach area this past week. We were originally hoping for Capt. Bill to take us deep sea fishing, however, his Rogue Wave was unavailable last week. He offered us this as an alternative. My Husband, son and girlfriend, along with our two friends from Sebastian ventured out to the Blue Cypress area for what none of us knew what to expect kind of adventure. Upon arrival we immediately were greeted and ushered to the boat. Once aboard, Capt. Bill takes you out slowly, pointing out wildlife and such. Always allowing for photos. We saw gators, all sorts of birds. Also explaining plants, answering questions...which really makes you sit in awe. My favorite part, going fast! Do this tour, you'll have a lot of fun. Don't forget your camera, but make sure you can tether it to your body so you won't drop it in the water. Also, take the hour tour! 1/2 hour goes way to fast!! Best value in the area for a fun time. The area has picnic tables and plenty of parking, so pack a lunch! Most of all, Enjoy!!

“A not to bre missed ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

An airboat ride accommodating young and old delivering on the promise to find alligators and a variety of exotic birds in their natural habitat. Captain Bill was extremely knowledgeable, could answer all of our questions,and was very kind and patient with our 5 year old grandson's comments and questions. A truly wonderful experience!

“More fun than I thought it would be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I'm not really an adventure person, especially for alligators. I was happy enough to leave them be. But I was pleasantly surprised at the tour and seeing alligators up close and personal! Our Captain was very knowledgeable and fun. He knew right where to go and what we could expect when we got there. LOVED the Rookery the best though :-) Definitely would recommend going!

“Awesome tour with Cpt. Bill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Firstly, we were afraid that we won't be there on time, since we drove from Tampa for couple hours. Even though we were late, Cpt. Bill kindly waited for us. We really appreciate that since we could not reschedule at all and wanted to take this tour very much. After the tour it was very clear to me why it has such great reviews. Cpt. Bill was very nice, friendly, courteous, funny, we saw many, many aligators, birds and and great time. I definitely recommend this tour if you will be around Vero Beach.

“Awesome Hour with the Gators!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

My girlfriend and I took the hour tour and loved it! We saw plenty of alligators big and small, birds galore, and didn't get hit by a single bug. Cruising around on the air-boat would be buckets of fun on its own but the wildlife tour really made the experience.
