7 of booked the 8 am tour and paid the little extra to have the gator rage boat as it seats 7 passengers so we effectively had a private tour. Captain Bill was friendly and was waiting for us on the boat ramp. If I am honest I was a little sceptical as to what kind of wilderness could exist... More

Captain Brian was fantastic. He has a great knowledge of all the birds and eco system. We all felt safe during our trip. Captain Brian found us some exciting gators. Gator Bait is the best in Florida.

A must do in the Vero Beach / Port St. Lucie area. Captain Bill knows his marsh and everything that makes its home in the marsh. Do the Swamp Rocket Adventure for a personalized , up and close Eco experience. A great way to start the day in Florida.

This is a trip I have wanted to do since watching Gentle Ben at home in Scotland as a kid and boy, it did not disappoint. Friendly, knowledgeable and skilful crew found the perfect balance of fun with the airboats and education about the conservation area they work in and which they are clearly proud of. We saw gators, fish,... More
