“Fantastic”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

On the recommendation of friends, six of us went on the Airboat Ride-our guide was phenomenal-he was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. It was a beautiful day and we were able to see lots of alligators, several kinds of birds and lots of fish jumping right out of the water.

I would do it again in a heartbeat.

“Excellent Experience!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

My 14 year old grandson was visitng rom Houston and did not want to return home until getting to go on the ariboat at Camp Holly again. We did this in November of 2010, and he loved it. Both times were great with drivers that were knowlegable and entertaining! Don't miss out on this fun activity; especially when you're entertaining out of town guests!

“Great fun in beautiful nature”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

The airboat ride is great fun and you get to see a lot of nature. It is best in winter months when the water is colder than air and the gators are subathing. The winter is also great for migratory birds. The airboat ride is exhillarating. You get the sense that you are in the middle of nowhere. The drivers are also good guides and some really know the history of the area. You may have to wait a bit to see if they can fill a boat, or if the boats are out. Figure about $35 a person and a tip for the driver. I go airboating everytine I have friends in town who haven't been before.

“Love It!”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We absolutely loved this airboat tour. We couldn't have asked for anything better. It was my 70 year old father, my husband and myself in our 30s and my son 3. It was great for everyone. The guide was awesome, friendly and completely approachable. We only waited a few minutes for our boat to leave. We would recommend this to anyone and will return in the future.

“Free beer for bikers”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

This is the sign that was out the front when we came by Camp Holly. It gives you a pretty good indication of it's laid back attitude. There are no set times for the airboat rides, they seem to just go when there are enough people. We probably waited around 20mins which wasn't really a problem. Being out on the boat was quite fun, the driver seemed to have a good idea of where to find the gators so we saw quite a few, and a couple of turtles as well.
