Camp Holly Airboat Rides - see wild gators!
Airboat Tours! Our family always wanted to do this, so we flew down to Florida to make it happen! Nearest airport to this great location is Melbourne Airport, which is really nice. Easy to get a car from there to explore the area (rental).

This place is REALLY something! It reminds me of the show "Swamp People" but the folks here are nicer, more professional, and very safety minded when taking folks out on the swamp to go see live gators, day and night!

We had CAPT BOB as our pilot and he was great. He was able to do a "gator call" from his throat and summon TWO live gators to our airboat - astonishing!

Plenty of gators around the "camp" and plenty to eat, drink, and enjoy. While we were there, a live band was playing as well.

The lodge is something out of a movie with slanted floors, ceiling, and very "back country" decorations of long-deceased alligators! Wow, what fun!
