Bill was spectacular!!! His main concern was safety even checking to see that the life jacket we had for my 3 year old niece was Coast Guard approved. He was so attentive to her but just as attentive to all others aboard. Bill was knowledgeable and respectful of the outdoors and wildlife. Bills tour was amazing and his air-boat was... More

What a wonderful way to see Florida wildlife and experience nature at its best. Everything from alligators to exotic birds as you sit in comfortable seats gliding over marshes with the awesome smells of nature all narrated by an experienced and knowledgeable guide/captain. Make sure you bring your iPhone and/or video camera!

We were visiting from California and decided to go on an airboat ride - we found Gatorbait searching online. Their communication was great - we got a text within a few minutes of making our reservation with all of the info and detailed directions to the site. The one hour ride was absolutely fantastic! We couldn't have asked for anything... More

The tour was a lot of fun, we saw quite a few gators, a cotton mouth snake and lots of birds! Our tour guide made it a lot of fun and told us a lot of informative facts. I would definitely recommend this if you are in the area!
