“Disappointing! Expensive for what you get. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

They advertise plantation river cruise. You will see lots of trees and told about the plantations that existed in that location. We saw one plantation, however I never saw the slave houses and had limited view of house. Didn't see any wildlife. Very expensive for what you got $100 for a family of four to basically look at trees and listen to stories of plantations on a pontoon.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

The boat trip was hot, long and boring! I had to fight sleep! My granddaughter was very bored almost from the beginning. To think we paid $90.00 for this? There was hardly anything to see. I thought there would be southern plantations, alligators and just a more pleasant experience than this! There were only a few plantations back in the trees, one far-away alligator and a couple of faraway osprey nests. The brochure is deceiving. I was very disappointed and angry at spending my hard-earned money on this tour!

“AIRBOAT TOUR REVIEW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

On our recent visit to the Myrtle Beach area, we took the Airboat Tour running our of Wacca Wache Marina. It was a great experience. The boat easily held all 7 of us. The kids especially had a great time, and we even got to see a baby alligator. Our guide was very knowledgable about the area, and turned the boat around 3 times until all the kids got to see the alligator.

“Relaxing....but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

If you want just a relaxing river cruise, this 2+ hour trip is what you want. Lovely tree lined river.

If you think you will see plenty of Plantations - Wrong! Most of the plantations no longer exist. Many references to the rice paddies, but views are blocked by the trees. Some birds, but no alligators. Guide was knowledgeable, but couldn't see much of what he spoke about. Bring your snacks and a jacket if you sit in the open air area.

“Boring. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

It wasn't fun at all. Very expensive. And didn't see really anything. Seen only two plantation but from very far away. No snacks or beverages on the boat. You can take them on. And the bathroom aboard stunk really bad.
