Our guide, Irish Dave, was teriffic. Lots of knowledge of the river, mangroves, birds and sea life. Stopped to see about 20 sharks from hammerhead, black tip and tiger. All in all, I highly recommend Irish Dave.

Better than any amusement park and absolutely peaceful! Captain Fish was amazing and very personal and educational! My family will definitely be going back!

This was a birthday gift for my wife and our daughter went along. It was our first airboat ride. It was great. Great way to see the river and Gulf.

Gavin was awesome and informative. We saw two sting rays.

Mike Fish our captain made the excursion very enjoyable.
