I really wanted to see some gators during my vacation, and this was the perfect place. We went on a sunny March day with temps around 70, and we saw more gators than I could count! Small ones were swimming in the water on the peninsula before we even started our ride. The airboat ride itself was more fun than... More

We are local and looking for an outing for Spring break so we booked a 30 minute airboat ride. It was so fun and educational! I don't remember our boat captains name but he was so kind to my 5 year old son. He was also very knowledgeable about the lake and the wildlife that lives there. Afterward, you are... More

My husband gifted me an air boat ride for my birthday knowing how much I love wildlife and conservation. It was a bit too chilly and windy so we have taken a rain check for another day. They were most gracious to accommodate our wishes to come back and welcomed us to walk around the grounds. We will be back... More

I have been on this tour a few times. It does not matter what time of year or time of day. Those gators come out and are very unpredictable. But they are always spotted! The guides are very intelligent and great with the kids ! We will be back!

Absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere! Our server/bartender laney was beyond exceptional! She was so sweet with our 5 year old son and was attentive and genuine with every guest there. One of the air boat captains(did not get his name) even let our son pet a baby gator that he was showing guests that attended an air boat ride. We will... More

Captain Steve took us on a thirty minute airboat ride around Lake Oviedo. He pointed out alligators and birds that live in the area. We asked questions and received a lot of information about the environment. Each person was given ear protectors to drown out the noise of the boat. After the ride, we had the chance to hold a...
