FAQs
What time should I arrive?

Please arrive at least 15 to 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time and check in at the Gift Shop.

Are reservations required?

No reservations required for our 30 minute airboat rides from 9:15 am - 5:00 pm daily. After 5:00 pm there is a charge of $20 per party when available

Are there age requirements?

There are no age/height requirements for our airboat rides. Children under 2 years of age may sit in your lap or ride beside you. Children under 6 years of age are required to wear a life vest and ear protection which we provide for you. Children under 6 are also required to wear eye protection (such as sunglasses, which can be purchased in the gift shop or brought from home). We also highly recommend eye protection for adults.

What is the best time to ride?

The alligators and wildlife are more active in the morning and evening hours during the summer months and mid-afternoon in the winter months.

What is the appropriate attire?

Summer / Fall:
Dress light, wear sunblock, sunglasses and bring comfortable shoes.

Winter / Spring:
Wear layered clothing to ensure comfort.

Am I guaranteed to see gators?

Our Captains are experienced in and will do their best to seek out the locations in which alligators frequent. Lake Jesup is the most alligator populated lake in Florida. Each tour is unique and quite unpredictable. During the warmer months, the morning rides are better and during the colder months, the warmer hours are best for airboat tours.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Life vest and ear protection are provided to all of our passengers. Children under six years of age are required to wear life vests and ear protection we provide, and eye protection, such as sunglasses (can be purchased in the gift shop). Eye protection is also highly recommended for adults. Eye protection can be brought from home (glasses, sunglasses, goggles, etc) or purchased in our gift shop.
