Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided the boys with an outstanding experience. My youngest son counted the gators on our trip and he counted at least 89.There were so many gators that...

We checked TripAdvisor prior to our trip trying to decide which airboat ride to take. We were staying in Kissimmee. Friends had told us to Make sure we didn't get on a boat that only went around the shore of a lake. We are a family of 7 including 5 boys ages 11-20. The reason we chose this airboat tour... More

First time on an airboat was worth every penny. Knowledgeable, friendly captain and boat guide very accommodating. We saw lots of gators (one 13footer), bald eagle, turtles, large birds, ducks, and scenery. Since the temperature was in the 60's the gators were sluggish and the captain able to get right up close to them. Great photos and videos. Tip: the... More

this is my second trip on the everglades and this was by far the best. the location is remote and you get to see bald eagles, vultures, osprey and snail kites right above you even before you get on the boat. the boat ride showed us an abundance of gators and even cows in the water!! we saw herons, eagles,...

This airboat ride is the best value for your money. The price is unbelievable at $35 per person if booked in advance. The site is a beautiful natural environment with many baby gaters, turtles, birds, and squirrels. The tour is well narrated, lasts over an hour and is environmentally sensitive to the inhabitants of the marsh. We saw many birds,... More

This airboat tour is about a half hour drive outside of Orlando's tourist traps. We decided on this company because of that, and that it was an hour long ride. We were very pleased. My husband is an avid bird watcher, and was thrilled to see 9 species he had never seen before. One of the first birds we saw... More

Though we were only able to see 2 gators, I thought that the tour was well worth it. The hands on gator meet and greet was something my 7 & 8 year old will never forget. Can't wait to go back!
