We loved our airboat ride along the Homosassa River. It was thrilling to ride in the airboat along the river. We also enjoyed cruising along the river to view wildlife and the beauty of the area. Highly recommend the airboat tour!

Captain Stu has been down here for decades and has an amazing amount of knowledge for the area. Took the time to show us hidden gems along the way and made it so enjoyable I would go back again!

THE BEST! Riverside Resort Airboat Ride w/ Capt. Dave (formerly Capt. Stu). We had an awesome experience with Dave, so knowledgeable about the area of Homosassa, Monkey Island and surroundings. Could have stayed all day. Thrilling, informative & all the staff was friendly from making reservations, arrival, and total experience. Highly recommend.

Had company coming so tried to set appointment for a ride. His craft was laid up for repairs and he recommended another airboat operator. The other operation ( River Safari ) never responded to several calls and messages. So the much flaunted airboat scene in Homosassa is sorta NOT!

We took this airboat ride and loved it, the Capt. was friendly and explained the things we saw as we went by at a slow speed. However when we hit the gulf and he opened the boat up there was no talking, only a great ride. I have been on several airboats and this was a great ride, and would... More

I called the resort marina last week and made a reservation for a party of four to take a 2PM boat trip today, Monday. They took my name and told me no problem they would see us Monday. After an hour and 15 minute drive to Homosassa Springs we were told that the boats are out of service. They apologized... More

We reserved a late afternoon tour on Labor Day weekend and had the pleasure of one of Captain Stu's assistants take us out. Being a holiday the main channel was very crowded but soon we were off in the shallow water, past many beautiful islands, and totally away from the other boaters enjoying the beauty of natural Florida. We saw... More

Saw Capt. Stu's reviews here and gave it a try on short notice by calling the Riverside Resort where we were staying. Air boating is a great experience and he was accommodating to my GoPro to be mounted directly to the cross beam of the boat, some AMAZING pictures. So he took us around and hopped over some grassy areas... More
