“AMAZING!”
Review of Boggy Bayou

Boggy Bayou
Reviewed 16 July 2018

Lived here for 7 years and decided to take the family on this tour. We were able to experience a part of Florida only a handful of people get to experience. Our family made memories that will last a lifetime thanks to Capt. Dave. When ever family or friends visit from now on I will definitely recommend this tour!

Captain Dave took us out for over 2 1/2 hours we never felt rushed he showed us all kinds of things explained about the eco system of the bay. Saw numerous things, dolphins, gators, the 18 year old got to drive the boat some. Well worth the price and would recommend to anybody. Capt Dave was so nice and friendly you can tell he just enjoys what he does and wants to share. Thanks again and look for us again.

We looked at some of the other air boat operators, but Boggy Bayou seemed to fit what we wanted to do - we wanted more of an "eco" tour rather than just blasting around for 30 minutes. Captain David really delivered - the boat itself was really comfortable, and David REALLY knows his stuff :-)

My husband was thrilled that he got to drive the boat too - we got to see loads of wild life, including egrets, ospreys and wild pigs... much better than a zoo!

Note that the "tour" runs around 2.5 hours, and it can get a little chilly out on the water (we were there mid-April) so plan accordingly. Also, you will not be crammed in with a bunch of strangers... David's boat seats around 4-6 people, and he will only take people who are together in the same group out at one time.

A don't miss experience!

We enjoyed every single minute of this tour with David!! He was fun, professional, very knowledgeable being that he was former wildlife officer. He pointed out things we would've never noticed, like a nesting eagle family, My boys absolute favorite part was when we went on a gator hunt and found him. Not a retile fan myself, even thought that was cool. A close 2nd for the boys was getting to "drive" the boat. They LOVED it! Never being on an airboat I didn't know what to expect. It is a little loud but totally bearable, he also provides headphones if you want to use them. Dress warmer than we did, it was a tad bit chilly the morning we went and lucky for us David just happened to have a few extra sweatshirts he let us borrow. We didn't get wet which I appreciated since it was "cold". I am very prone to motion sickness on a boat and I did very well on this trip, no rocking, just speed, which was so much fun! Thanks again David!!!

A two hour+ airboat tour of the bay with the fun and knowledgeable David (former DNR officer). A lot of wildlife and the most amazing sunset ever. These memories will last a lifetime. Thank you David for one experience we’ll always remember. Hope to see you next year!
