For anyone wanting to do an airboat ride....
Just wanted to recommend an airboat company, we went on a ride last year, it was only 1/2 hour long and we did not see one gator - it was very rushed.
However this year we went to Cypress Lake (under an hours drive along the highway 192).
The airboat had stadium style seating so everyone had a good view and we went out for an hour, we saw millions of Gators, Bald Eagles and all kinda critters!
Really got the impression that the guy was not going to take us back until we had seen a gator!
Could not fault it! Good value for money.
