Our Crew

Capt. Mike

“The Old Bald Guy” and our resident prankster. Absolutely the funniest captain on any airboat in N Florida! Just ask him! With over 14 years of being on the water with us, he says he only has 38 years left to retire at 100. He’s also the only guy we are aware of that has eye surgery every morning, and doesn’t own shoes…

Capt. Rick

Not the “oldest airboat captain around…but definitely, the most experienced airboat captain in the area, with over 20 years of experience actually on airboats, and the only State of Florida approved Airboat Safety Instructor in the northern part of the state. He is a nuisance alligator trapper for the state…and still has all his fingers! Capt Rick is also an Army veteran and one of the countries few remaining true Sternwheel boat captains.

Capt. Paul

Captain Paul… the silent but deadly one of the bunch! When he is not playing swamp rabbit with an airboat, he’s the pilot boat captain for Port Panama City… I think he may know how to run a boat and have fun!

Capt. Nancy

Even the alligators won’t cross her! A registered nurse for 30 years…this she does for fun! Ever seen someone give an alligator stitches?

Miss Shelly

…”the VOICE” on the phone! And the one that will tell you where to go! (to get on the boat that is)…have you ever seen an alligator smile like that?

David and "BUBBA"

…folks, THIS is a show that you will not see anywhere else in the country. Bubba is a 20-year-old American alligator that is voice and hand command trained! David, we just got potty trained.


The Matriarch, full-blooded mutt, and part traveling salesman! Absolutely the worlds sorriest dog crossed the rainbow bridge this year after entertaining guests at Airboat Adventures for 15years and 3 days. He will forever be in our hearts and memories!
