We stopped here with friends to give the airboat experience a try and had a blast. Our captain was soft-spoken but knowledgeable and very friendly with a dry sense of humor. The water was a bit low so we could not go into some of the back water areas but we still got to see lots of wildlife including birds,... More

Took the family on an airboat ride and everyone really enjoyed the ride. We only saw one alligator, however the scenery was great and the boat ride was thrilling. Our Captain was full of personality which made the adventure.

He is full of interesting facts about the waterways, the wildlife, the culture and community of people who work and play in the area. Captain Matt shares his experiences in entertaining stories about growing... More

Our boat driver/guide was enthusiastic about sharing his love of the swamps. The ride itself was beautiful. We didn't get to see alligators, but considering the noise these boats make, it's hardly surprising. Still, beautiful ride, and fun was had by all.

Had a fun time at Camp Holly with my father and friend. They have really tried to improve this place since the last time we were there. Beautiful ride, viewing the swamp in it's natural beauty. Captain Matt was a great tour guide. Even though the water was very high and we saw no alligators, it was truly enjoyable and... More

Enjoyed with family and friends. First time on an airboat for all of us. We saw a couple gators swimming in the waters around the facility. Unfortunately, did not get to see any up close on the boat (high waters). Captain Earl took us around lakes and swampy areas. Had a great time. Got to charge thru high grasses. Total... More

We enjoy just going out and listening to the music, and watching the air boats come and go. Cold beer! Staff is friendly. Love the haunted air boat rides in October.

3/28/16 Fun time. Captain Nick was terrific. He Did a great job maneuvering the boat for optimal viewing of wildlife. He slowed down in areas to spot the animals. Saw many alligators, various species of water fowl, and a big turtle. Very cool riding thru the overgrowth and bushes. The guy taking pictures was annoying. The displays in the fish... More
