Shannon was a super guide, very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. Beautiful hour exploring Florida's wildlife. The location is only indicated with a small non-commercial "Boat Ramp" road sign on the side of the road. All the airboats load and unload there regardless of company.

We were all outfitted with life preservers and headsets first. After instructions on safety and the headsets we took off for the best air boat ride possible. Captain Bob provided all the information one could want, knew the area very well and gave us so many opportunities to take photos. After having been on other rides like this, I can... More

Wildlife did NOT disappoint us--- surprises around every corner. Great photo ops along with information not only of the flora & fauna but the history of the area as well. Thank you Captain BOB for a great adventure!!

Fabulous tour!! We saw gators galore as well as a variety of birds, other nature (turtles) and amazing scenery! Captain Bob was simply THE BEST!! He was so knowledgeable and gave a great narrative along the trip. Photo opportunities are plentiful and he will slow up or even make a U-turn so everyone can experience the sights! Highly recommended activity!!

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. My friend was interested in photographing the fauna and flora and he did his best to accommodate her.

My son an I decided to take the tour not knowing what to expect. We were a half an hour early. Captain Bob was there and ready to start. We saw gators, birds, turtles of all shapes, sizes and colors. Bob was informative, courteous and safe. He positioned the boat so that we may take as many pictures as we... More

Really enjoyed a wonderful day on water. Captain Shannon was great - he is very knowledgeable about the plants and wildlife, and has a great sense of humor mixed in! The time flew by. Was a terrific way to spend time with the family.

Don't come to FL and miss out on this experience. Shannon was our captain and was knowledgeable about everything we saw from the plants to the alligators. The ride itself was so much fun I could have just ridden around for hours. It was a learning experience also as I now can identify the wildlife we encountered. Who knew there... More
