So glad we followed thru with this adventure. Bobby is great! We saw a lot of wildlife and fish. He did 360's then went slow so I could take pictures and then fast for the thrill of it. We loved every minute. We even saw Manatees. In the middle of the trip he rode over a sand bar out in... More

We saw fish, stingrays, turtle and dolphins. The weather was calm and the water so clear we could see the dolphin in the water around the boat. It was a perfect ride.

This was an awesome experience! I love how the airboat just glides over the water. This was a tour of the backwaters and it nice to get back there and see some of the native vegetation. The water is clear, obviously, and there are soo many fish to see. Mullet fish jumping and we saw some stingrays too. We stopped... More

Ok, guys......I'm not a 'boat on the water' gal, but we took a ride with Bobby Archer on his airboat and it was AWESOME! He is the nicest, sincerest guy ever and knows everything about the mangroves and sand bars he takes you through and on. If you find yourself in Matlacha, Florida, or in the area, give him a...

My family joined Bob on his airboat on a beautiful day in Florida and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Bob is very knowledgeable, friendly, and works hard to provide a great experience. So much wildlife to enjoy near Matlacha! We will be back for sure and will call Bob for another trip.

What a GREAT time. Definitely worth our time. We couldn't have had a better experience. Captain Bobby is extremely experienced with the backwaters that you would never get to see without a airboat. We were going through 0 inches of water / sandbars. A prop motor can't get in there. Wildlife all over that the average tourists would never see.... More

Our family went on the tour out of Matlacha Florida with Captain Bobby Archer. Talk about a blast!!! We saw many things that you don't normally get exposure to from a typical beach vacation. We saw Stingray, Snook, Redfish, Needle fish, Sheephead, Mullet, Horseshoe, Blue and Hermit Crabs, Jellyfish, various clams and a multitude of birds of different types and... More

There were five of us for the tour ranging in age from 63 to 9 and everyone had a great time. The boats are easy to board and very stable. Capt. Bobby is a great guy and a fabulous captain. The boat was clean and well maintained, plenty of parking. Make sure to bring a camera and plenty of sunscreen... More
