My son an I decided to take the tour not knowing what to expect. We were a half an hour early. Captain Bob was there and ready to start. We saw gators, birds, turtles of all shapes, sizes and colors. Bob was informative, courteous and safe. He positioned the boat so that we may take as many pictures as we... More

Really enjoyed a wonderful day on water. Captain Shannon was great - he is very knowledgeable about the plants and wildlife, and has a great sense of humor mixed in! The time flew by. Was a terrific way to spend time with the family.

The ride itself was so much fun I could have just ridden around for hours. It was a learning experience also as I now can identify the wildlife we encountered. Who knew there... More

Captain Shannon was fantastic and took us around the Garcia Lake. We saw several gators and lots of birds. He was full of information and answered all the questions my family and I had. The ride itself was fun and smooth, and his knowledge of the area really added to the experience.

Had an awesome airboat ride. Even though this is not the right time of the year to see gators(too hot) we were able to spot a few. Due to the hot temperatures, at this time of year, only time the rides are offered are sunrise and sunset. We took the sunset trip and it was great. Saw many different birds... More

What an AWESOME EXPERIENCE I had this pass week...I moved to Florida a few years ago and the owner of the company who is a Captain would ask me if I wanted to take my family and friends on his airboat but they were always scared to go. They were wrong!!!! My friends came in from Wisconsin this past week... More
