Loved the tour. Our guide was well informed and entertaining to boot. I really appreciated learning about the history of the location as well as the information about the wildlife we were viewing. Thanks Bob:)

If you've ever wondered what an airboat nature tour is all about I recommend trying this company. They were friendly, professional and very knowledgeable; not only with regards to the wildlife we saw but the entire eco system. We saw at least 40 alligators ranging from babies to monster size. Just ask BOB when you make your reservation.

Captain Darald did a great job. We were amazed how much wildlife we saw on this short trip. It was weird how many gators were named Bob. The one thing we liked was how Darald steered clear of the wildlife so they were not disturbed. Will be back to do this again. Thanks!

What a wonderful experience! The area is perfect for this, our tour guide was unbelievably knowledgeable. He knew just where to go to see the gators, birds and other critters, and knew which birds were endangered. He did a wonderful job of making sure we got great pictures. Absolutely awesome experience. We would recommend it for everybody!

We visited on 1/15/2017, with family. We had a large group & they were very accommodating for our group. The staff was very friendly. We saw bald eagles, cows, and LOTS (22, to be exact) alligators. I am attaching a photo of Bob the alligator. Captain Darald was great, very knowledgeable and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our group... More

We were looking for a family adventure that would include some fun, outdoor time and education for the entire family. This hit the mark 100%, our guide was fabulous and knowledgeable. He ensured the little ones 6 and 3, saw the wildlife, took time to explain the eco system and why the cows aren't afraid of the alligators! It was... More

I've been on a few airboat tours, and this was the best so far. A few acrobatics, a half dozen or so gators, and Captain Andy teaching us a lot about the history, nature, and ecology of the area. Tours were even available on New Years day (we were visiting my Dad in Lake Wales over the holiday.)
