All of the staff is incredibly friendly and good at what they do. The sights were breathtaking, the tour through the swamp was very cool, and the Captain had us out for at least an hour and twenty min. Would recommend and WILL BE BACK...More

We have been on several different airboat rides from Ocala to the Everglades. They were all enjoyable but Swamp Fever Airboat was the best of all! Captain Ron was very informative regarding everything we saw as well as the scenery in the swamp was amazing....More

Great time on the lake with Capt Ron, very knowledgeable, patient with questions. Both he and Kyle genuinely care about the wildlife in and around the lake. We felt like we were spending time with family. This is not just a business for them.

This was one of the best alligator hunts I’ve been on. Captain Ron was very informative and fun to be with. Even went over our allotted tour time and held about 3ft young alligator. Would highly recommend his tours.

We always go by the weather. Cool mornings with sunshine, we always suggest 10:30 to 3:00. You see more during those hours. Hot days like summer, we always suggest the first 3 runs. You always see alligators on the ride... More

This ride is for all ages. We make it fun for everyone. We have actually had seniors in their 90's who enjoyed the adventure. We have had some that told us it is on their bucketlist. We would be more than happy to have you.
