Booked a trip for myself and my cousins visiting from OH. I've been on lots of other airboat boat rides, but this one was by far the best! Captain Lawrence had more than enough knowledge of the animals and area, I learned so much! Will definitely book again! It was awesome!

I have taken my grands with Captain Lawrence twice and 3 15 year olds today and they all thought it was awesome. Lawrence makes it fun and educational. Not too long and not scary at all. Worth the time and money!! will go again.

rode with Captain John twice in 2 weeks and both time it was a wonderful experience. He added a little different narration on both trips. First trip was with 2 granddaughters and our daughter, second trip was with sister and brother-in-law and everyone loved it. We would give him a great recommendation.

Although this operation does not have a physical building, they are top notch. We had arraigned for a late afternoon ride because we were flying in to the area that same day around 11am, and did not want to rush to get there. While we were at the airport, I received a phone call from a lady with Florida Cracker... More

We had Chandler as our guide and had a great time. Would recommend bringing warm clothes because it can get windy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with CaptainLawrence. Even though it was very windy and cool we saw lots of gators and other native wildlife. He was a wonderful guide and shared his knowledge with us. It was interesting, fun and educational all at once. Could not have asked for anything better.
