I took my two granddaughters for our first air boat ride. Captain Kenny was a great guide. He obviously has spent time on these waters and knows where to find the gators. Lots of gators both large and small and many beautiful birds. It was a great time if your planning to visit the area this is a must on... More

Captain Ken was amazing. He certainly knows his history of the area. Some much great information about the local wildlife. He was able to get us close enough to take great pictures of gators and birds. Amazing ride. Gail H

So much fun... saw lots of wildlife. Captain Kenny was amazing. He knew the area very well. Accommodating to pictures and getting the best shot. Would go again a million times. I would consider this fun for any age.

OMG, this was one of the best boat experiences I've had. Captain Kenny knows the area and habitat. The tour was filled with hundreds of alligators, birds and trees. This is a good tour with plenty to see and learn.

One hour trip - lots of ecology and biology - birds and alligators - fabulous commentary - very responsive to our needs - great administration from the first phone call to the trip - and Captain Lindsey hugely knowledgeable and interesting. This vastly exceeded my expectation. Normally we kayak!!

We booked the entire boat(14 people) and had a great time. Captain Lindsey was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Lots to see and of course....gators. Be sure to stop at Marsh Landing for lunch or dinner. Superb food with great prices in a historical building.

with so many choices we are so glad to use this airboat tour. I don't think you could pick a better ride. We lost count but know we saw at least 30-40 gators. Ken the captain has to be the top captain in the area. He takes you to see large gators and baby gators. His knowledge of the lake/swamp... More
