Great experience! Ken knew all about the the marsh, origins etc. We saw at least ten gators. Not too hot so they were sunning on banks. Nesting birds and other wildlife were experienced too. The finally was buzzing a row of banks, real close, and having four gators dive for cover right as we went by. My daughter was so... More

Had another great experience with captain Ken yesterday! Saw many alligators of all sizes. Captain Ken knows where to find them and is very knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. We also got to see many bird nests with young ones. I would highly recommend the MARSH BEAST to anyone. I have gone 3 times this season.

Captain Lindsay is so knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. One young boy monopolized the conversation and made the trip somewhat distracting, but the Captain all he could do to remedy the problem, since the mother did not. I'm not a fan of the crocodile in captivity, but that's a personal opinion. I'm glad we did the tour.

We had a couple people with us on this trip that hadn't ever been on an airboat. So while in Vero Beach we checked out Marsh Beast Airboat Tours. We had a great time with Captain Lindsey!

We are locals but took our Canadian friends with three young children out with Kenny for the afternoon. He's very knowledgeable and provides a great tour. He answered all of our questions and was especially attentive to the kids. They had a blast and received an alligator tooth necklace at the end of the event. He talked about conservation and...

What a great time! Captain Kenny is a great tour guide! This is our second trip with him! WE saw lots of gators, nesting birds, baby alligators, ospreys, etc. If you have never been on an airboat ride and you love wildlife put it on your bucket list.

The boat was comfortable and Captain Kenny was knowledgeable and fantastic with our three children. We wanted to see wildlife, not just a joy ride and we got exactly what we were hoping for. Dozens of alligators, nesting birds, turtles and fish. It was a great experience!

We were a group of 5 including seniors and young teen. Everyone had a fabulous time with Capt. Kenny. If you are a birder, you will be fantastically rewarded with nesting Great Egret with chicks and also Osprey. Ducks and other wading birds populated the marsh in big numbers. There were more alligators on shores and in the water than... More

Captain Kenny takes you on a spectacular hour-long airboat ride through a swamp containing all types of wild life and plant life. His experience and knowledge makes the trip very entertaining and informative.
