Loved the air boat ride. Never been on one. Saw quite a few gators would probably say 40-50 closest we got to one was about 10 feet before it ran away. The driver was funny and informative and drove the boat safe. I would recommend to anyone that has never done an air boat ride. Will come back again.

I've been here 3 time and each time it's amazing. The tour lasts about 40min. The pilots know the lake and where to find gators that's why we see a lot of them everytime. We've seen a lot of baby gators the last time we went in may ! But the most important advantage of Camp Holly is that the... More

We called and asked if we could get an airboat ride... we were told "sure, if you get here by 5." We raced around and pulled in the lot at 4:57 just to find out "Nope! They are full." AFTER a 40 min drive and telling 6 yr old triplets we were not going... thanks. They offered a whole 10%... More

We had a great ride! Our captain, Earl was awesome. Took us out and we saw a bunch of gators. Including some baby gators in the nursery. So awesome. I guess there are times when you might not see gators but we sure lucked out. Absolutely recommend this tour! The boat ride even seemed to clear my sinuses! :)

We stopped here with friends to give the airboat experience a try and had a blast. Our captain was soft-spoken but knowledgeable and very friendly with a dry sense of humor. The water was a bit low so we could not go into some of the back water areas but we still got to see lots of wildlife including birds,... More

Took the family on an airboat ride and everyone really enjoyed the ride. We only saw one alligator, however the scenery was great and the boat ride was thrilling. Our Captain was full of personality which made the adventure.

Our boat driver/guide was enthusiastic about sharing his love of the swamps. The ride itself was beautiful. We didn't get to see alligators, but considering the noise these boats make, it's hardly surprising. Still, beautiful ride, and fun was had by all.
