Before you book your next hunting trip to Florida, ask your guide if he is legal to be guiding you. A lot of them are not in compliance with the new laws. As of July 2019, the State of Florida now requires anyone operating an Airboat for hire to be trained. All operators must attend a 24 hour training and be CPR certified.  They must also have a boater safety class and be subject to random drug testing. We are in compliance with all State and Federal laws.

Private Land Hunts

These Florida alligator hunts are done year-round day or at night.

These Florida alligator hunts are done year-round, during the day or at night. Different hunt types require different conditions, but our private property allows you to customize your experience. No matter your preference, you’ll enjoy fantastic thrills as you track down—and take down—gargantuan predators with prehistoric ferocity.

Private land hunts may be done during the day with riffles as a spot and stalk hunting. Sport-sized and trophy-sized kills may be taken during these hunting trips. Alligators of either size may also be taken at night from an airboat with a bow, crossbow, or a hand-thrown harpoon.

Once you have you kill in-hand, we offer everything you need to make the most of the experience. Whether you want to keep the meat or take some teeth for a trophy, you’ll go home with more than just great memories. That’s what makes us the trusted name in gator hunting, in one of the most bountiful places on the planet to take up the sport.

Sports Hunts

The fee for a sport hunt is $1,850.

We average 10-10.5 feet on these trophy gator hunts.

Public Water Hunts:

Done from August 15 to October 31st

These alligator hunts are only done from Aug. 15th through Oct. 31st and may only be done at night with bows, crossbows, or harpoons from airboats. Either size alligators may be taken during these hunts (sport or trophy gators). This is by far the most exciting and challenging method of harvesting alligators. These are all night hunts: for one night for sport-size gators or two nights for Florida trophy gators. An additional night may be needed if we have bad weather. It has never taken three nights to complete a trophy hunt yet.

These Florida alligator hunts are done on thousands of acres of open lakes, canals, and swamps. On these hunts, you will see Florida's wildlife as it has been for thousands of years. You will see well over 100 gators in a night. When the sun goes down, the swamp comes alive with eyes and sounds of the wild. You will enjoy the airboat ride of a lifetime, going to some of the most incredible locations around. While sport hunting for alligators, our customers have taken several shots at different gators over twelve feet long.
