There were 8 of us in our party, including a 2 year old. We all had a great time. We saw lots of Florida wild life, inc. alligators and a moccasin snake. Our guide was Capt. Joe, he was good fun and very knowledgable. Don't be put off by the meeting at the gas station, everything runs smoothly from there.

We took a 90 minute ride with ex-USMC Captain Kenny. Got up real close to some meaty alligators which Kenny treated with respect and good ethics, even getting us close to a nursing mother - with a dozen baby gators - without causing disturbance. Also saw bald eagles, egrets. Knowledgable on all nature on the lake and some good speed.... More

All of the arrangements are correct, you do meet at a gas station. Catch up with a guy in an old beat up Lincoln and follow him to a gated property where there is a landing strip with a helicopter (taking off, when we arrived). You give them a credit card when you make the reservation for obvious reason, it's... More

It was a Florida experience with a lot of character! Meet Capt. Joe at a gas station in an old black Lincoln full of character You drive to an old grass air field with old air planes lined up in a row. After Capt. Joe pad locks the gate behind you, you see what looks like someone learning how to... More

We always wanted to try an airboat tour of the everglades, but thought it would be too long a drive from Orlando. Turns out several companies operate out of Kissimmee that will provide a fun outing with plenty of birds and gators. Definitely worth a few hours away from the man-made features of Orlando.

Drove 2 hours to take our 12 year old to see alligators, and ride an airboat like swamp people. We also had our two year old daughter with us. It was a lot of fun, both the kids loved it! We saw at least 10 alligators ranging from 3' to about 8-9'. The captain was great, knowledgeable of the lake,... More

Me and my wife bought a groupon for their company for $35. Only after did we see in the fine print 1 per party. We intended to just see if we could pay the difference if any when we arrived. The Groupon instructed us only to call and make a reservation which we did and I was quoted $37 for... More

This is a review from a gentleman (and I use that term loosely) named Patrick... He has so very nicely posted reviews on multiple social media sites changing his story on each and everyone making it sound more and more like he was a victim. Here is a copy of our response to one of his previous reviews and also... More

I have no yardstick to compare this experience by, but bottom line was that we really enjoyed it, despite it being a little bit rough and ready or maybe that was part of the authenticity of the experience. The thing which made it was the airboat 'captain' and his running commentary of interesting facts about the wildlife we spotted intermingled... More

Based on some negative reviews we did not have much expectations. Finally we had a pleasant trip. It is true that you meet in the petrol station and you will leave from an old airfield. However, knowing that I can say that the Captain was exactly on time, the drive to the airfield was a few minutes only and it... More
