CAPT. BOB’S AIRBOAT ADVENTURE TOURS, Blue Cypress Recreation Area, CR 512, Lake Garcia, Vero Beach, 633.7849, www.airboatadventuretours.com

The airboat is full, the excitement is building — and with a roar, the boat takes off through the marsh in the Blue Cypress Recreation area west of Vero Beach. But passengers needn’t fear they can’t hear the descriptive narration Capt. Bob is providing — they’re wearing helicopter headphones, designed to cut the noise and pipe the speech right into their ears. He got the headphones for the comfort of his passengers, he says. They help to make his tours a favorite among our readers. “When we go out we tell them this is your tour, it’s all about them,” he says. Capt. Bob Montuoro was a firefighter in Indian River County for 31 years with the rank of lieutenant EMT and holds a Coast Guard license. Keeping his passengers safe is his top priority, he says. After that comes making sure they have a great time. He’ll talk about alligators from egg to the end of their lifespan. He points out ospreys and other wildlife that might not be noticed without an experienced guide. Word travels fast and Capt. Bob finds that he gets a lot of repeat customers along with new ones. No tour is exactly like any other. There’s always something new to see, he says.


"It’s trustworthy and has been in business a long time. You get a great ride!"

"They give you a great opportunity to see another side of Florida different from the beach."
