We believe that when you go for an airboat tour that you should experience a real airboat adventure off the beaten path. Your safety is our primary concern but our goal is for you and your family to have an exciting airboat experience while skimming across the river and swamps and to share as much information with you as possible about the alligators, wildlife, birdlife, fish and plant life that abounds on the marsh.

The tour operator was excellent, comfortable boat, informative and entertaining. We had a 12yr old and a 15 yr old with us and they loved it. We saw lots of gators and were given an education about the eco system of the area. The boat...More

Fun, informative, memorable, our 9 year old grand-kids loved it, so did we. We saw gators and Mike played around to ensure we would see a maximum. Over an hour and a great learning experience. Sophie now knows the difference between gators and crocodiles. Maude...More

Staying at Melbourne beach but this company had the best reviews around. Went there today with my parents, who hadn't been on an airboat before. We paid for the 1 hour trip, however we were out for a hour and 45. It is very clear...More

Went on airboat "alligator" ride and we were extremely disappointed. Saw 2 alligator, one of which you could tell he had trained with toy fishing lure. What a joke. He should not be able to sleep at night charging $40.00 for 50 minutes of nothing....More

No, unless the child obviously doesn't want to go & would spoil the tour for everyone else.

I'm not sure what you mean by "like the Everglades". We do educational and informative eco-tours on the marshes & swamps of the St. Johns River by airboat. We have a similiar eco system to the Everglades but We don't have... More
