The people conducting the tour were very nice and friendly. They provided headphones for everyone because the airboat we were on can be really loud. We went pretty fast once we got started and we did several fast spin arounds in the boat that weren’t for the faint of heart! After the first surprise spin they asked if we were ok with the quick turns and no one spoke up; however, later my husband told me he thought he might get sick because he suffers from motion sickness. There was a young boy on the trip, and I have young grandchildren the same age but my grandchildren are not ready for this kind of boat trip yet. The ride is for an hour and they stayed well within that time period. We saw an alligator and some crabs along the way. The trip is well worth the price, and it is next door to a good restaurant-Boon Docks.

Lots of fun on the airboat. 8 in our family: 5 adults, 2 teen boys and 1 child. We all loved it. We picked Wild Thang because our whole group of 8 could fit on 1 boat together. Before the airboat tour, we were able to hold a baby (3 year old) aligator. We did the hour tour in early afternoon. I missed it but a few saw a baby aligator. We saw A LOT of dolphins. Very cool and got great videos/pictures. The 180/360 turns were lots of fun, also. I would definitely do it again.

Very nice ride! Our captain was very knowledgeable and was educational as well as fun.
We did the 1 hour ride during the day. We saw dolphins but no gators. Would highly recommend for anyone and the kids are sure to love it. Be ware when using GPS.... there is a new bridge and the GPS does not recognize and wants you to turn off the bridge!! :)…… you turn before the bridge.
