Me my wife and 2 boys went out for an hour tour with captain Mike. We had an awesome time. Captain Mike was very Knowledgeable of the wildlife and surroundings. We saw about 15 Alligators and he made my oldest son day by letting him ride in the co captains seat. We payed for 1 hr and got 1 1/2 hr. Thanks for a great experience. Highly recommend!!!!!

We were rolling through Melbourne on our way to Ft Lauderdale - on a whim I called and talked to Captain Mike who worked with us to schedule a ride that same day. I told him my kids were interested in seeing gators - not only did Captain Mike work hard to ensure we saw them, we learned a lot about gators and about the swamp during our tour. Very highly recommend!!!

There were many excursions to choose from and I highly recommend Airboat Rides Melbourne..the reservation was easy to arrange..we actually got a return call from A.M. unlike a couple other companies. We left on time, were told exactly what to expect and the guide knew just where to go to find a variety of wetland animals...An amazing #of alligators , which was I wanted to see! And the boat ride was just what I pictured...exciting and fast...but I never felt worried about anyone’s safety. The protective earmuffs and pre trip suggestions made it very comfortable. This was a bucket list item for me for years..and became me for my husband and friends once they stepped aboard!
