Guests Love Us!

“We had such an awesome time! Our captain was very knowledgeable about the area, teaching us and helping us to have fun along the way. We loved how each rider got to wear a set of headphones to communicate with both the driver and the rest of the group.”
—J. from Minnesota
“Our captain was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the wildlife. The airboat ride itself was so much fun and we learned a lot about the mangroves, the air plants, alligators, and the area. Would absolutely recommend!”
—E. from Virginia
“Great ride! Saw gators up close and cool species of birds. Captain had a vast knowledge of the area, the wildlife, and the waters. A real pro with the boat and very caring for his passengers, especially a small boy and his mom. Money well spent!”
—J. from San Francisco
“We had the best time! We did the combo with the swamp buggy ride and that was awesome! We saw a black bear in his natural habitat and learned so much. It was a definite highlight of our trip. Of course, the sanctuary was great, we saw many alligators and crocodiles and got to hold a small alligator.”
—S.R.
