Great Experience

An absolutely wonderful experience with Airboat Wilderness Rides! Our captain was extremely knowledgeable and he knew exactly where to take us to spot wildlife. We saw so many species of birds. The ospreys feeding on fish, perched high up on bald Cypress trees, were a sight to behold!

We will be going again!

Nothing like a ride with these guys! Fun for the kids and so much to see. The ride was full of facts consisting of nature and the history of the waterways. Very wonderful experience! Today there was easily over 100 gators out there to see. The birds, plants and the waterways were stunning! Captain Bob was beyond hospitable to my family and the others on the boat today.

Highly Recommend

The whole experience at airboat rides was wonderful. The captain was very knowledgable and took his time with everyone taking photos and answered every question that was asked. We learned a lot about the area. We met Allie up close and personal in her habitat and many other alligators big and small plus many different types of birds and turtles. The boat was equipped with headphones which made it very easy to communicate with the captain.

Awesome Tour!

We went on the tour this morning and it was perfect! We got to see at least a dozen alligators and lots of different birds. Our tour guide shared lots of information with us through the headsets and made sure that everyone on the boat got to see the animals. We felt safe the entire time! I highly recommend taking this tour!

Saw over 34 alligators!

I had a fantastic tour with Captain George Lins. We saw over 35 alligators, and he shared expert knowledge about the other wildlife in the lake. I've been coming to Florida for over twenty years and this tour was the highlight of my vacation. It was a perfect combination of adventure and education. I would recommend it over visiting a theme park any day! Perfect for young and old alike.
