If you're ever in Dunnellon Fl, a airboat ride with Captain Bob is a must. He makes you feel like one of the family and takes you deep into the swamp on the Withlacoochee River to MANY alligators and even has names for them. High...More

Decided to rent a pontoon for the afternoon. The guys that prepped our boat were helpful as we got ready to head out. I would have given them 5 stars had the boat been cleaner.. a quick wipe down would have earned the full five..

Excellent ride! Captain Bob was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw a lot of Gators and the ride was so much fun. We will definitely return! Well worth the money! Highly recommend Captain Bob. The boat is very well maintained and the headsets are clean.

It was a great day for a boat ride. The captain was flexible about our schedule so we could beat the rain. Off we went. We had young boys and the were excited by all the birds and turtles. And then, we saw 3 gators!...More
