Absolutely one of the best Saturday's spent! My boyfriend and I came down from Orlando and got to see such an array of wildlife! From alligators of all ages and sizes, to birds and turtles! The weather was to-die-for and Captain Bob not only was funny but highly entertaining with the background of the location & animals. Who said learning... More

I was visiting family with my girlfriend and we all decided to go on an air boat ride. This was my first experience and i had no idea what to expect. I must say that this experience blew my mind away. Captain Bob was highly educational on all the local wildlife and vegetation in the Lake Garcia River. We were... More

We had a great time with Captain Bob. He was very knowledgeable and we got to see so many gators and beautiful birds. We also enjoyed the fun boating experience.

A wonderful adventure thanks to Captain Bob! He made this experience a pleasure from start to finish. He shared his vast knowledge of the area, the many birds and all the gators. We were treated to having calm waters so the gators were out swimming. Captain Bob was thrilled to share the rare viewing of two pairs of Black Neck... More

We went today and I can't stop thinking about the fun that we had. I will be back with more people who come here to visit. One hour of wild life and more alligators in the largest preserve.

Shannon was a super guide, very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Beautiful hour exploring Florida's wildlife. The location is only indicated with a small non-commercial "Boat Ramp" road sign on the side of the road. All the airboats load and unload there regardless of company.

We were all outfitted with life preservers and headsets first. After instructions on safety and the headsets we took off for the best air boat ride possible. Captain Bob provided all the information one could want, knew the area very well and gave us so many opportunities to take photos. After having been on other rides like this, I can... More
