The Jolly Gater Fish camp was also very good and lunch of gator bites and beer was the perfect way to round of the morning. I have not been on... More

See an amazing landscape of the Florida wild life many species of birds, turtles, gators and plant life. So peaceful and exhilarating, felt like you were flying above the water like the birds. Loved it!

The whole scene at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp, out of which Capt. Bruce Fryer operates his airboat rides, is a must-do if you have a little adventure in your soul. The airboat ride itself is amazing, a sensory jolt, and you will see tons of wildlife along the way, including alligators, bald eagles and any number of wading birds.... More

This is a must-do if you're visiting Florida. Our family of 5 from Minnesota had a great time! We did a lot in a week, but this was definitely one of the highlights for all of us. Captain Bruce was awesome and we saw lots of wildlife. Can't recommend it enough!

We ate after an air boat tour. Didn't look like much. People in my group looked at me kinda evil eyed after I said we were eating there. It was very good! Several locals came and went (always a good sign). Everything was cooked to order. And very tasty. Highly recommended. Bar food type of place Good hotdogs, chicken strips,... More

This small but professional airboat tour operates out of the Jolly Gator Fish Camp located about on hwy 46 about half way between the Sanford airport and I-95. Well worth the effort to find it. The airboat is small, holding 6-7, but will operate with as few as 3. The operator is very experienced and provides an excellent blend of... More

We spent an hour with Captain Bruce on our airboat tour on the St. John's River, and it was an experience we won't forget!!! From the moment we stepped on board the 8-passenger (including the Captain) air boat until we roared back up onto land, it was memorable. Capt. Bruce took us on a trip to remember--from full out speed... More

Fantastic trip around the water for our crew aged from 11 to 66 years! Incredibly knowledgable captain who knew exactly where to go for both gators and bird life. The area is so beautiful and so few people made for a wonderful day in regional Florida. Big thumbs up from us.

First airboat tour and we were not disappointed. Saw lots of gators, different birds, and even cattle & horses. Captain Bruce was very informative. I would highly recommend this tour. We also ate at the restaurant there. Staff was very friendly, food was very good.
