The airboat experience is well organised and run by knowledgeable people, despite it being a hot sunny day the operator knew where to find the wildlife, and then we found out how fast those airboats can go - great fun!

If you are in the area of Clearwater, this is well worth the one and a half hour drive to Inverness. I arrived a little early before the next airbag ride, but the time passed quickly. They have small alligators you can hold and have...More

The ride went for about an hour and whilst the cost for us was included in a day tour I believe it's about $45 for an adult but you get $10 off if you mention you've seen the discount on their website
