We had an amazing adventure with Captain John!!! We did a private tour for photography. Captain John knew where to go for the best alligator and bird watching, while being respectful of their habitat. Highly recommend!!!

My husband and I had so much fun experiencing the gators and birds at Blue Cypress. Captain John was very informative and gave an excellent tour. We saw over 20 gators and numerous species of birds. Great opportunity for many wildlife pictures. Highly recommend this company for vast knowledge and experience.

Very professional and clean boat . Also had a very good time with the kids the captain is very interactive over the headsets . The wild life and the knowledge that is provided help explain what exactly happens in the wild . I will differently return to go with captain John.

A jam packed hour of flora and fauna. Local background of history of the area and the evolution of the lake site. Don't miss this excursion, both captains were informative and entertaining. We recommend this trip to everyone.

We booked on trip based upon a previous trip my mom took who lives in Vero. My wife and I came down for a visit from Maine and she has never seen an alligator before. Capt John was such an amazing host with vast knowledge of the wildlife and the history of the Cypress area. We were able to see... More

Office 772-461-0303 Cell 772-224-5820 This is not located at Blue Cypress Recreation Area, call for directions. You will not be disappointed. Captain John gave us an exciting, very descriptive adventure. I think it was about an hour long. We saw birds, turtles, alligators of all sizes. A flock of cormorants were feeding on fish, which was something Captain John said... More

Thank you for the great review. But we are located at Blue Cypress Reccreation Area. We are NOT at Blue Cypress Lake which is a little confusing. We ask that you do not use your GPS or you will end up in the wrong place. Thanks again. I had a great time talking with you guys. See you next time.... More

Captain John is such a great guide. We saw gaters, lots of birds, and interesting trees and scenery. The speed of the boat adds to the fun.

This is such a good time and well worth the money and drive! You get the full airboat experience plus see alligators and birds in their natural habitat. Captain John and Christa are not only entertaining but very knowledgeable about the wildlife that exist in the waters. Captain John is also very safety conscious and the boat is comfortable for...

Wonderful boat with headsets...Capt. John really knows the area and the wildlife. We saw at least 50 gators...and then herons, nesting osprey and so much more. We all would have enjoyed the adventure without all the wildlife sightings..so it was a real win-win. Can't wait to repeat next yeat when we visit.

Captain John and Christa were amazing! We saw over 30 gators before we lost count. They were knowledgeable guides that provided a fun and educational experience. Our group of 5 enjoyed their company and would recommend this trip to anyone - it's an absolute must do!!
