An hour long tour finding a lot of wild life! Captain John knows the area and the details. One of the best trips of its kind.

I would highly recommend. Our grandsons were visiting from the Rockies, and this was a wonderful Sunshine State experience for them. Having lived in Florida for 60+ years, I also really enjoyed a trip through one of the state's remaining scenic, natural wilderness areas. We saw many birds and gators, and Capt. John was a great guide.

We have taken guests to two other airboat/gator excursions in the last 12 months. This one is excellent. Captain John really knows about 'gators and was able to find them in many locations and in many sizes. We also saw turtles and lots of birds. He was respectful of the environment and provided tons of information to enhance our experience... More
