Sandy J said this about us on Tripadvisor in October of 2020

“Highly recommend Capt. Mike – Fantastic Experience!! Will do it again next year.

Must do!! You will love it! We have been vacationing in Florida for over 30 years and have always wanted to go on an airboat ride. We previously went on a large group airboat ride in the Everglades, but it was not even close to as much fun as Capt. Mike’s airboat ride. He is very knowledgeable about the area and a very experienced Airboat Captain. This is probably one of the best experiences of my life – highly recommend!!”

jeffreyt802 said “Best airboat ride ever!”

“Captain Mike gave us a fantastic trip thru the tossohatchee wildlife area. He gave us a personal Size tour on a smaller airboat that was able to travel on dry land as well as water, we encountered numerous wildlife including several Gators, a bald eagle, and more. Mike’s knowledge of the area made it an incredible learning experience.”

Wonderful Morning Airboat Ride– We arrived at 8:40 ish and Mike was already waiting for us! (Our Tour was scheduled for 9 am) We got started right away! Saw at least 50 alligators, cows, turtles, and birds galore! It was an informative airboat ride! He stopped and explained the area to us… and answered all our questions! Even the silly ones! Lol … the alligators were everywhere and jumping into the water as we sped by! My aunt has been on two other airboat rides previously (she lives in Orlando and has visitors often) … and, she said this was the best one she’s been on! The snack was so nice for the kiddos and us! (He provides cookies, mini snickers, pineapple, nuts, and water) It was just a wonderful experience and my kiddos loved it! My son talked about it the whole way home and couldn’t wait to call his Pappy and tell him all about it …. so, now my parents wanna go when they come soon … We would definitely come back when we visit my aunt again! Thank you again for an awesome experience! It was just a FUN morning!”

“If you are looking for something really fun to do on the east coast of Florida or to escape from the house look no further. Captain Mike and his wife Denny run a great business and their tours are second to none. We had an awesome time today learning all about alligators, airboats, and cattle ranching in Florida – plus the boat ride is a blast. The ride from Orlando is very easy! Thank you Captain Mike and Denny for our best day in Florida so far!”  Lori H

Thanks to Dan J for this awesome review:

The Best Florida Experience Better than our day in Epcot, Universal, etc! Seeing real Florida speeding along on a six-person Airboat- seeing real birds and animals in their natural habitat was, without doubt, the best experience of the holiday. avoid the big commercial companies go with the more eco-friendly -Captain Mike brings the boat down to the river on the back of a trailer we pile on and off we go – he knows all there is to know about St Johns river and whilst seeing the birds and fauna is stunning the Alligators steal the show – an epic experience!”
