We believe that when you go for an airboat tour that you should experience a real airboat adventure off the beaten path. Your safety is our primary concern but our goal is for you and your family to have an exciting airboat experience while skimming across the river and swamps and to share as much information with you as possible about the alligators, wildlife, birdlife, fish and plant life that abounds on the marsh.

Lots of speed but not many gators

Great fun here. Good staff. Things to occupy kids with until your turn comes about. The burgers and fries were really good

we had an hour trip and it was very informative as well as being nice out here on the water, the captain is great! Don't be disconcerted when you show up to a dusty carpark and a rusted out BBQ, the bathrooms are a grey shed on the corner, and they take payments in cash or using an app and... More

Thought we were just going on an airboat ride but Captain Mike made it very interesting and educational, We saw lots of gators and learned a great deal about them and their habitat. Would highly recommend this. It was about an hour long, bring your camera and sunscreen.

Captain Mike gave us a great tour! He had lots of knowledge about the gators and local wildlife. The boat was comfortable and fun and we didn't get wet. :) We saw lots of alligators and birds. Would highly recommend this tour!

Mike gives the perspective of a trained expert through the lens of a... More
