We had an awesome ride with Captain Troy! He brought us up close and personal with the alligators. He knew a lot about the area and wildlife. Great ride- we will be going back again. Make sure to bring your camera!

We had a great time. Saw several alligators and the highlight was seeing big Oscar !! Captain Troy was a delight. He kept us entertained and was full of fun facts. Perfect weather and a great way to spend a day in Florida.

We brought our friends out for their first airboat ride with Captain Troy and they had the most amazing time. We were able to see large gators everywhere and our friends were absolutely fascinated at how close we can get to them. Bring your camera because you're going to have a blast. Very reasonably priced.

We call to make reservations and confirm price. We are told that it is $25 adults and $15 kids. We show up early as asked and the girl behind the counter says it will be $75... That's not what we were told. Besides that she has an attitude and lack of customer service skills. As we decided the money didn't... More

Great airboat ride! Capt. Troy was a great guide. Knowledgable about wildlife and native plants. Enjoyable and have already recommended to others.
