They Will Not Disappoint!

AMAZING!!! An airboat ride was on our bucket list and Captain Will made sure that our ride was everything we wanted and more!!!! He was so knowledgeable of the land, the plant life, the animals and the airboats history!! This made it even more enjoyable!! We also loved his humor – great guy!! Our family is too big, so we had to use 2 boats, and Miss Chelsea was also just out of this world amazing!!! Our kids loved her!! We definitely recommend this awesome adventure with them to everyone!!! They will not disappoint!!!

We Had a Blast

Highly recommend! We had a blast. We were a family of six (2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 kids – aged 8 and 4) and it was just us on the boat. Captain James was fun and so knowledgable. We went fast, we went slow, and we saw so many cool things. Taking the tour with a local and on a smaller boat meant really great stories and also getting into cooler spots in the marsh. Plus Captain James even got us right next to a huge swimming alligator! Definitely worth the money we spent!

Capt. Will Was Very Knowledgeable and Entertaining!

Our experience included fast, fun boating as well as peaceful serene stops. We were able to see all kinds of wildlife from native birds to the elusive American alligator. And we even saw some cows! We also came across some baby gators playing near the edge of the cedar forest. Capt. Will was very knowledgeable and entertaining! We will return for another tour!!

We Saw So Many Gators

I had some friends come to town, just for the day, they wanted some fun and adventure. Because time was an issue I was trying to think of something and came up with the idea of an airboat ride.

I found Capt Duke’s on Google and the reviews were good, price was good, and Cape Will was friendly and accommodating over the phone, so we booked an hour’s ride.

It was a little hot, middle of June, 2:30 in the afternoon, I knew our chances were somewhat slim of seeing gators but I was proven wrong! We saw so many gators, I was so surprised! They were quick to go under as we approached so pictures were kind of hard to get, but there was a lot to see, all kinds of wildlife, we learned some interesting tidbits about the St. John’s river. Capt Will is very knowledgable and friendly.

Booking was easy, finding our meeting location was easy, and I really liked the fact that our group were the only ones on the boat.

I would highly recommend Capt Duke’s Airboat Rides.

Smaller Boat So You Don’t Get the Crowd

Had a great family day! Capt. Will is really nice, knowledgeable and took us on an awesome tour. It’s a smaller boat so you don’t get the crowd and you have great seats. Check out Capt. Duke’s Airboat Rides for your next fun day!

10 Out of 10

10 out of 10. We had so much fun with captain Duke. We saw beautiful landscape, cows, horses, birds and gators. We saw a momma with her nest and was able to go to an Indian mound and walk around. Next time we will do the 2 hour tour or the sunset tour.

The Ride Was Amazing

My son and I went on a Capt Dukes airboat ride last week with capt will as our pilot. The ride was amazing. We saw a lot of alligators, bald eagles and lots of other animals. The airboat ride was a lot of fun. I would highly recommend it. One recommendation for passengers: make sure you dress for the conditions. Even on nice day it can be cool do to the speed your boat will go.
