Fantastic experience and lovely captain Joe was very knowledgeable about the wildlife on the lake. We had a great time whizzing over the lake and coming face to face with snakes, turtles and alligators as well as loads of birds. I would recommend the tour as we also got to meet 2 young alligators which we had the privilege to... More

Captain Wayne knows his way about an airboat. He knows his Florida wildlife too, and delivered us to many viewing locations where he pointed out an abundance of birds and gators. It was a very professionally conducted tour by an engaging Captain.

Easy to get to. Nice family business run very professionally. This is not one of those tourist traps but a sincere effort is made to educate people of Florida and its wildlife. These people are very knowledgeable of the area and the animals that support it. Holding live baby alligators was certainly the highlight. At the end a free picture... More

We took a large group (ten people) to Captain Fred's just before Christmas. First, let me say that you are not guaranteed to see wild alligators. In fact, this is located on a large lake that has some swampy areas in and around it. There are alligators there - but this is not the Everglades. The price is fairly high... More

Nice family run company. The tour takes you out on the water to various spots to see real wildlife and plants in their native environment. Saw alligators, birds, turtles etc. The guide narrated the journey and was very knowledgeable. Back at base you can hold some alligators and they explain everything you wanted to know about them. Worth the time.... More

Captain Joe was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and habitat. He was fun, courteous and upbeat. His passion for nature was apparent as he shared information with us. I highly recommend this air boat tour.
