Skip the touristy airboats with 12 people per boat! This is the real deal!

Had some guests that wanted to go where the locals go for airboating so I headed to Geneva and the Jolly Gator Fish Camp on the St Johns River. We only waited 5 minutes before they had us hauling butt across swamplands and puzzle lake. Captain B showed great respect for the local wildlife and the natural environment. He also... More

There were lots of gators all different sizes, turtles, birds horses and cattle! If you're not from the south it is surprising what is just off the road behind the trees, completely different terrain. Captain Bruce was great and the 360 he did with the airboat was fun!

We booked a 30 minute tour. We hadn't gone but a couple of minutes and we were already seeing alligators. By the time we got back, 45 minutes later, we had seen dozens of gators, many types of water birds and a bald eagle. This was a very enjoyable time.

Captain B knows this area so well. He grew up here and knows he names of all the birds. He pointed out many bald eagles and other gorgeous birds. We saw many alligators and had a fun boat ride. Well worth the money. Our Michigan family had a great time.

We had a great time. Captain Bruce is very personable and the airboat ride and scenery themselves were worth the price of the ticket. We saw lots of gators in and out of the water, a bald eagle and lots of other bird life. Would highly recommend this operation.

We had great tour with Captain Bruce, it was little warm to see many alligators but we saw plenty of other wild life and the family had a wonderful time. The Jolly Gater Fish camp was also very good and lunch of gator bites and beer was the perfect way to round of the morning. I have not been on... More

See an amazing landscape of the Florida wild life many species of birds, turtles, gators and plant life. So peaceful and exhilarating, felt like you were flying above the water like the birds. Loved it!

The whole scene at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp, out of which Capt. Bruce Fryer operates his airboat rides, is a must-do if you have a little adventure in your soul. The airboat ride itself is amazing, a sensory jolt, and you will see tons of wildlife along the way, including alligators, bald eagles and any number of wading birds.... More

This is a must-do if you're visiting Florida. Our family of 5 from Minnesota had a great time! We did a lot in a week, but this was definitely one of the highlights for all of us. Captain Bruce was awesome and we saw lots of wildlife. Can't recommend it enough!

We ate after an air boat tour. Didn't look like much. People in my group looked at me kinda evil eyed after I said we were eating there. It was very good! Several locals came and went (always a good sign). Everything was cooked to order. And very tasty. Highly recommended. Bar food type of place Good hotdogs, chicken strips,... More
