“Last minute decision”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We decided in the morning to not go to another theme park and have a relaxing day instead. We called and to our surprise we were able to book a tour for that afternoon. This was by far the favorite for most of the family. We saw a lot of gators and learned about them as well. Captain Dave was a great tour guide. I would highly recommend taking a tour on Aquatic Adventures. Thanks so much!!!

“Best part of my week In Orlando!”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

Captain Dave own a his own boat. Only six people per tour (max), which makes this a much nicer trip. Since the boat is smaller, we went thru swampland a larger airboat could not make it thru. Dave grew up in the area, hunts gators for food, and KNOWS the lake and swampy areas. We saw MANY gators, of all sizes, and many types of birds. We each had tight fighting earphones with a microphone attached so we could all talk to each other. Loved every minute of the one hour tour.

Tip: Don't get thrown off when you drive to an empty boat landing. You Re in the right place. Dave brings his boat to you. Smart. Low overhead for him and better prices for us.

Be sure to use restroom facilities BEFORE you get to the landing as there is no porta potty there.

This is a must do in Orlando!

We spent yesterday afternoon with Captain Dave on his custom built airboat - what an amazing day! The scenery - the aligators - we must have seen 30 or so and a ton of babies. It was the best hour - great commentary from our extremely knowledgeable host! We would highly recommend this tour and would very happily do it again! Thank you Captain Dave.

“A Great Way To Spend An Afternoon”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

We found this airboat operator through Trip Advisor and we're glad we did. We had been on a more expensive airboat ride in the Everglades before, but this was much more fun! I loved the fact that it was a small boat and Captain Dave is just a regular guy. It really wasn't "commercialized and touristy" the way many things in this area are. We called in the morning for a reservation (after not being able to get in with another company, thankfully!) and my family of four ended up being on a tour by ourselves that very afternoon. There were TONS of alligators, birds, a couple of turtles and other interesting sights. We even went through an alligator nest and saw a bunch a baby alligators! Next time I would definitely book the Makinson Island tour. It looks like an interesting place. Without hesitation I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a Florida experience that doesn't give off tourist trap vibes.
