We believe that when you go for an airboat tour that you should experience a real airboat adventure off the beaten path. Your safety is our primary concern but our goal is for you and your family to have an exciting airboat experience while skimming across the river and swamps and to share as much information with you as possible about the alligators, wildlife, birdlife, fish and plant life that abounds on the marsh.

This was a fun little tour outside of the parks rat race. Learned so much from captain mike. Didn't get to see any alligators but we were there in nov so it prolly wasn't prime time for them to be out. Captian mikes information made up for not being able to see a gator;)

Capt. Mike and his airboat ride exceeded our expectations. He was so knowledgable and educational. He has been in these swamps most of his life and provided such great information and an absolute great ride. We live in the area and will definitely come back for night rides, frog and alligator hunts, and will bring our friends and family when... More

I have been on numerous airboat rides in central Florida over the years. Our normal guy was on vacation and suggested we call Capt Mike. He was very friendly and tried to make the trip as interesting as possible for a couple young kids that were on the trip. Very much educational, which is not what I am used to,... More

Thank you Captain Mike for getting us in on a tour at the last minute! Our whole family had a great time-my youngest son said it's the best boat ride he has ever been on! Captain Mike earned our confidence as a skilled boat captain in today's choppy lake waters, we were able to see several alligators (including a nesting... More

Thank you Captain Mike for the best airboat ride I've ever taken in the central Florida area. Mike is very knowledgeable about alligators. He went out of his way to make sure that we saw many of them. Don't let the heat keep you from going. It was breezy and nice on the river.
