We chose to go for this company due to their smaller airboats, we didn't want to be on a 20 seater and after doing the tour, we're glad we did. The driver was friendly and well conversant, she was happy to chat and even stop...More

Fabulous low key and personal tour. Captain John has real character and so much knowledge. We saw alligators, birds and bald eagles but just the ride alone was worth it! Thanks Captain John, hope to see you again!

He's the best guide in Florida! I'm a local and I take all my guests on his airboat tour...all the others are commercialized! He goes out in his own airboat and makes it memorable :) johnnie is the best!

We called in the afternoon and captain John offered to take us for a ride the same evening, at 5.30 when it had cooled off a bit, as we would see more alligators then. We had a wonderful two-hour ride and saw a lot of...More

Chose this ride based on previous reviews and it offered a smaller, more personal service. We were not disappointed. Just five people on our boat - max eight(?). We went out for 1.5 hours. Captain John was really good - found four large (10 foot)...More
