A fun ride on the river where we saw gators of many sizes, and wild pigs and piglets. Our boat captain made sure we didn't miss a gator sighting and was very informative about the river. Recommend you not waste your $$ on swamp buggy. There was no swamp. It was during a drought and we should have been told... More

Took the airboat ride with my wife, daughter and 6 year old grandson. There were 2 others also. The boat can carry 6. The ride lasted almost an hour. We stopped or slowed along the way to observe wildlife.....a couple gators and some birds. The ride was great. Very winding river making the 30mph ride exciting. The scenery was nice;... More

Awesome is the word that comes to mind... Zac was a great boat driver and gave us (grandparents and 2 grandsons) an exciting ride. Saw lots of gators. Definitely returning soon for the swamp buggy adventure. Easy checkin with pleasant and courteous staff.

Four of us went for a ride midweek around 11:30 am. The tour went out on time. We had 6 in our boat and we had a fun trip up and down the river. A second boat was ahead of us but didn't interfere. Spotted gators, lots of birds, turtles and cows too. If you've never done this before, give... More

We really enjoyed our airboat ride which was a 1 hour trip down the Peace River. We saw lots of wildlife including gators. Like another poster mentioned the ride was stopped at one point while the guide stood at the front of the boat killing time. He was very informative and comical, we really didn't mind the stop. We really... More

We looked on trip advisor to see what to do in Arcadia as we are camping nearby. Saw this air boat ride and booked it. Our Gide was very friendly and told us lots about the river. He would stop and point out alligators. Such a fun ride. Would definitely do it again if we are in the area. Would... More
