Call us to find out more info, or check out our tours.

Why is a boat trip considered a must?

You won’t find an adventure like this anywhere else. You will visit secret places and wildlife only our riders get to see while gliding and flying down the river or bay on an exciting boat ride. This is the best way to truly discover the beauty of the Forgotten Coast! Learn More

What’s the difference between the airboat and pontoon trips?

Pontoon trips are more relaxing, while the airboat is an open-air adventure skimming across the water!

What is your most popular tour?

Lake Chipely is the most popular airboat tour. On the pontoon boat, many riders choose A Day on the Bay or the Sunset Cruise. Call to learn more!

How many people can ride?

The airboat can hold 5 adults comfortably, or 4 adults and 2 smaller children.

The pontoon boat holds up to 6 riders with plenty of space to spread out.

How much does a tour cost?

Prices vary seasonally and by tour type/length. Please contact us for pricing and more info.

What should we wear?

Dress according to the weather. In the summer, you can wear shorts and t-shirt. Bugs are not a problem during day trips.

On airboat tours, a light long sleeve shirt is good to protect from the sun. Baseball caps work well to keep the sun away from your face, and the hearing protection provided for airboat tours will hold your hat on and make a good ear seal. Any shoes are fine, but keep in mind we will be moving at 40mph during parts of the tour. For night rides, bring bug spray, and it helps to wear darker clothing.

The pontoon boat is a bit slower pace! Still, be prepared for direct sunshine, although the canopy provides shade.

What times do you give tours?

We give tours any time, any day. Day-of trips are always welcome, but give us a call to get all the info.

Where do we meet you?

That really depends on the type of tour and where the winds are blowing that day. When you call to make your reservation, we’ll tell you the specific address and give you directions. It will be in Apalachicola proper.

Do you provide life jackets?

Yes, and we have enough to fit both children and adults correctly for maximum safety. Ear protection is provided for airboat tours because of the engine noise.

May we bring food and drinks?

Yes! Alcohol is allowed, and you’re welcome to bring a cooler on the pontoon boat trips. Bring your lunch and snacks!

Can you cater our lunch or sunset dinner?

Absolutely! We partner with the best places in town. Please call us at least 24 hours in advance so we can make arrangements.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept cash, check, or card.

Where can we rent kayaks for a pontoon boat dropoff?

We’re happy to refer you to our favorite rental spot! Call for more info.

What ages might enjoy a tour?

Our tours are perfect for all ages!

What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate?

Apalachicola rarely has bad weather, but if there is, we will reschedule! And we’ll make sure you get plenty of notice. If you’re not sure, just call. See the Weather Cam

Who leads the tours?

Captain Larry will be your tour guide!

Is the wildlife on the river tours dangerous?

No, but we ask that you stay in the boat at all times, just in case (unless instructed otherwise).

Will we see alligators on the airboat tours?

Most likely!
