Had the pleasure to go out with Capt Chris in Blue Cypress. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He made us and my 8 year old boy the priority and seemed to enjoy telling us about the area more than we did actually experiencing it. We saw deer, gators, birds, turtles, fish and the true old Florida scenery. Truely an... More

Chris is wonderful and so passionate about this part of Florida that he loves and has spent many years exploring. This was not just a boat ride but a whole experience and he was so great explaining to the kids as well as the adults. Show a lot of wildlife. Can't wait to go back.

After living in Florida for 25+ years, I have finally gone on an airboat ride and to my own surprise, I enjoyed it immensely. After winning the trip in a raffle and unsuccessfully trying to trade it in for a fishing charter, (nothing personal, Chris) my family and I finally decided to take the trip while on spring break. We... More

Captain Chris was great! He knew everything about the area, very considerate to family members, and very funny! He showed us some gators, took us fishing, and showed us what it was like to experience old Florida! Instead of a half hour racetrack tour he took his time to explain the marsh and what was in it and why it... More

A friend highly recommended Captain Chris of Old Florida, Airboat tours and we were able to book a Sunday morning tour of the Savannas west of Vero Beach, FL. For... More

Took us to several unique spots, and made the ride fun and exciting at times without making anyone feel nervous we were going too fast. :) Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking to see the swamps of...

Being from Indiana I've never been on an airboat ride before. Captain Chris did awesome. It wasn't super fast or real slow for speed. He was very knows gravel about the swamps and air boating. Was a great guy to talk too. If I ever did another ride it would be with him. Would recommend him to anyone looking at... More
