"I highly recommend this for all ages!"

This was our first time in Nebraska and I was looking for an activity that would be fun for young and old. I highly recommend this for all ages! Kyle was an amazing tour guide. The Platte River is absolutely beautiful and the large number of eagles we saw was an added bonus. Kyle helped us take many family photos along the way and he gave us a great ride on the airboat!

"Kids had a great time. We'll be back."

We had a great evening on the river with Kyle. We saw bald eagles and 4 blue herons. Kids had a great time. We'll be back. Imagine it is stunning in the fall as the cottonwoods change color.
