we had a great time with Captain Darald. we saw so many alligators of every size and age. alligator BOB has grown so much since last time we saw him. We not only saw alligators but we got a super lesson on birds, flowers and even cows. We would highly recommend this nature tour with Darald. He is the best

We took our tour at 4:30 in the afternoon and were able to enjoy a beautiful hour on the water. Captain Darald took us through the marshes while telling us some interesting stories about the Florida swampland, its plants, animals and history. The boat carries a maximum of 6 passengers, so everyone was able to hear and see well. Upon... More

The airboat ride exceeded our expectations. Great history lesson about the area while on the ride. Our guide, Darald, was top notch. We saw the gator "Big Bob" and about 25 alligators. The booking process was friendly and easy. You did not feel rushed on the ride. Would highly recommend!

We enjoyed it so much last time, that we came back 5 years later to ride again with Captain Darald. 5 years ago Captain Darald introduced us to the alligator Bob, this time we were happy to see Bob, Big Bob, Grandpa Bob, and Robert, as well as plenty of other alligators. We enjoyed the knowledge Captain Darald shared with... More

He expertly guided us on an hour and a half tour of the Kissimmee River Basin, sharing his thorough knowledge of the Florida marshland and abundant wildlife. Of course, the highlight of the tour was the alligator sightings, including Bob, Monster Bob, Bob Jr., and lots... More

We had a blast!! Captain Darald not only amazed us with his knowledge, but was very attuned to our 2 young grandgirls. We counted 33 Bob Gators and were running out of names for them! This tour packs a lot into the experience and well worth your time and money! I work in the little store next door at Camp... More

This was an amazing affordable tour and well worth the price. Our amazing Captain Darryl was entertaining and knowledgeable. Not only did we see dozens of alligators of all sizes, we even got to see "Big Bob"! Would highly recommend.

Having never been on an airboat before and never on an alligator tour, I had no idea what to expect so my expectations were low. After spending 90 minutes with Captain Darald, I can honestly say it was so much fun and surprisingly educational. Not only did we see about 30 good size gators that day(including several named Bob), we... More
