Wanted to take my 11 year old grandson on an airboat ride. Found Peace River Charters on Trip Advisor. Major plus was that the location was less than an hour from home vs. 2+hour ride to Everglades and price was close to half. The ride...More

Paid $45 for one hour airboat ride - and that is all it is. No history, no explanations, no learning at all. Spend the extra time to go to Everglades and make it a great learning experience.

This was a great time. We went down the river and saw the beauty of inland Florida. There were several birds flying about, cows watching us from the river bank. We stopped on a river bank about half way back and the minnows were nibbling...More

It was a windy day so the ride was super bumpy, and only saw one gator and a couple turtles (I can see that at the golf course). A little pricey for not much. Also did the swamp buggy tour and that is not worth...More
