Belize City Air Boat Tour Excursion Reviews

Observe the beautiful wildlife while gliding over hundreds of acres of open marshland on an air boat tour.
The airboat ride was fun.
Sail Date: February 2019
The airboat ride was fun. The staff members are a fun bunch. Besides going fast, making sweeping turns and even a 360, they teach you about the animals that live among the mangroves and marshes...manatees, crocs, snakes, birds, etc. I ... Read More
The airboat ride was fun. The staff members are a fun bunch. Besides going fast, making sweeping turns and even a 360, they teach you about the animals that live among the mangroves and marshes...manatees, crocs, snakes, birds, etc. I would have liked it to go on longer. I don't think there is a person alive that can ride one of those boats and not smile from ear to ear! Read Less

Because I was a little unsure of Belize, We booked a Carnival excursion in this port. It was reasonably priced, and it was one half day.They took you through town on a tour, and then drove you out to the mangrove where the airboat tour takes place.You are not going to see any wildlife, no alligators, no turtles, nothing. You'll probably see some birds, but even they are not that interesting. Still, my family had never experienced airboat, so we were not unhappy that we did this tour this one time, but we would not do it again. Read Less

First, the long wait to get on the ship's tender was frustrating, then the tender took 15-20 to reach Belize. Except for the novelty of riding an Airboat, the local wildlife were missing in action.....disappointing really.

Long ride (aka tour of city) to the air boats.
Sail Date: April 2017
Long ride (aka tour of city) to the air boats. Saw a few birds but no crocs or manatees. This ride is not even close in quality of experience when compared to air boat rides in the Everglades.

Good guides and the air boat was breezy enough to keep cool on a very hot day and fast enough to prevent mosquito bites. On the other hand, the boat captain didn't glide very much to keep the engine from scaring away wildlife. No crocs, no manatees, and birds took flight from almost a 100 yards off. The guide seemed surprised at the lack of crocodiles, so you may have a better experience. Read Less

Interesting city tour and airboat ride. Some delays, so got back to the tenders late. Would have enjoyed spending more time hanging out after the excursion--great drinks at the pier!
