Husband and I were in Florida over the holidays and wanted to check off an airboat ride from our bucket list. We took a 90 minute private tour with Captain Lo, and he was awesome! We saw many alligators, big and small, turtles, and birds. Captain Lo taught us a lot about the Everglades and the wildlife, he was funny, interesting and a great tour guide. We felt totally safe with him, and wished we booked a longer ride because we only scratched the surface. It was a bit cloudy and chilly so we wore windbreakers and pants, didn’t get wet at all, and were given protection for our ears because the boat is pretty loud when it’s moving fast. There were drinks on the boat and we brought a few snacks, including some popcorn that Lo let us feed to the gators! Great experience, would 100% recommend to family and friends.
We took a two hour private tour with Captain Pete. While it was more expensive than the other tours, It was worth the money. We saw many alligators, a turtle and beautiful birds. The vast everglades are breathtaking. It was worth taking this tour so we could explore the natural beauty of the everglades.
What an amazing experience !!! He made it for me and my wife to feel absolutely comfortable !!! What an amazing guy and truly knowledgeable in what he does. Like he said this is not a job.. but something he loves to do everyday. You can see this in his heart.. Also I am writing this 20 minutes after our experience! These Airboat Tours are awesome!

We did a 1.5 hour private sunset tour with Captain Lo and it was amazing! I had done an airboat ride before but it sucked compared to this one. Captain Lo made this a great experience with his extensive knowledge and great boat-handling skills. He showed us several alligators and some really cool birds and we really appreciated how respectful he was to the environment. It was the perfect way to introduce us to southern Florida and learn about the Everglades. Highly recommend.

There is a special level of concern one has when meeting up at a sketchy gas station and handing over a credit card to pay $$$ to some stranger in the deep south of Florida. I can’t tell you that I was entirely comfortable with the process even after meeting with the people running the airboat adventure. We were asked to follow a van that was the only “Corporate Branded” item in the entire process which, oddly, made me feel a little at ease.
Even if the process was not perfect, and the meet up was an adventure to itself, the boat ride was AWESOME. We were whisked across the grassy everglades and brought deep into places that we would never have been able to access. We were concerned that we wouldn’t see alligators but we saw many of them. Our Captain was amazing, he was knowledgeable, funny and full of information about the local wild life. We took a 1 hour private package (Totally worth it!!) with our 2 kids and they were able to see and enjoys all aspects of the everglades.
We had an awesome time and the kids tell us this was the highlight of their trip!!
I would highly recommend this tour , fantastic pilot Willie was very informative and you could tell he is passionate about nature . We saw a variety of wildlife and some baby gators and some very large ones . If you are in the glades this is a great tour !! We came from Ireland, so this was a true Florida experience!!
This was a fantastic tour. There was an accident that held everyone up from getting there, but the crew was super accommodating to ensure no one was left behind. The captain gave us background about the airboats, and made sure to point out all the gators. A large male swam up to the boat to greet us. Highly enjoyable trip, with a great crew! Thank you

Our son wanted to try this adventure while we were here celebrating Thanksgiving. Read many of the reviews prior to booking. I made our reservation over the phone. Katie was very helpful with booking. She explained everything about the tour. She was equally helpful when we met her in person. Don’t be put off by meeting at a gas station. It all works out. The semi private tour we had with guide Moe was great!!! He was personable and knowledgeable. The three of us were with four others. Just the right amount. This is one of the great sites! Totally enjoyed this!
Had the pleasure of one of the semi-private tours. Since it began to rain a little bit, i were the only one on the boat – and had an amazing 1 hour journey. Captain Pete knew everything about the area, the animals, etc and occasionally stopped the boat, to show off some hidden places, where the different types of alligators live. I really enjoyed this trip, and im sure that even if the boat would have been full, i would still have had an amazing trip
