Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: 80% Residential Lake Lake Hamilton, Florida

Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: 80% Residential Lake Lake Hamilton, Florida. In my opinion, Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours website is very misleading.  The tours are advertised as “nature” tours.  In fact they are conducted on Lake Hamilton in Florida, which is located in a very populated area.  This relatively small lake is mostly residential and is next to a six lane highway, with very heavy traffic.  The view from the airboats is primarily the backs of residences.  The airboats are extremely loud.  Wildlife on the lake is negatively impacted by the noise and make themselves scarce.  If someone is looking for a “true Florida nature experience,” there are a number of other airboat tours conveniently located in Polk County, in a more rural environment, that are better able to provide the desired real Florida NATURE experience!

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: Residents Rights to Peace Lake Hamilton, Florida.  I have noticed that there are several homes for sale around Lake Hamilton, some for more than a year.  Is it possible that when prospective buyers look at these homes, they hear the noise of Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours, and since the realtors must make full disclosure, the prospects merely walk away?  And what is this doing to our real estate values?

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: Too Loud Lake Hamilton, Florida

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: Too Loud Lake Hamilton, Florida. We moved from a busy, noisy area to Polk County to live in a less hurried, more tranquil environment.  We were happy to find what we wanted on the shores of Lake Hamilton in Florida.  The lake is beautiful and quiet with an abundance of birds and wildlife.  THAT IS THE WAY IT USED TO BE!!!  Now that Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours is operating a commercial business on the lake, which is 80% residential, the entire environment has changed.  Extremely loud roar of the airplane type engines, with starting and stopping, and a devastating impact on the lake’s birds and wildlife.  It is a real shame that a business like this is allowed to operate and have such a negative effect on the community that has over 300 residents.

Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: Wrong Pictures Lake Hamilton, Florida. It must be very confusing for tourists who would like to take Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours.  He still has his old Lake Wales website up and running.  On his Lake Hamilton site, he has pictures and a video of areas that are definitely not Lake Hamilton.  It’s a fact:  there are no deer in the Lake Hamilton area.

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: Bad Weather Lake Hamilton, Florida

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: Bad Weather Lake Hamilton, Florida. The weather is so cold, windy and overcast – gloomy – I thought no one would want to take an airboat tour today on Lake Hamilton.  But Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours was in action today.  I guess he won’t refund the tourists’ money if the weather is bad.

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Upset Residents Lake Hamilton, Florida

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Upset Residents Lake Hamilton, Florida. I don’t know what to do.  I am so upset.  I have lived on Lake Hamilton for over 10 years and the noise from Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours is more than we can tolerate anymore.  I wish the people who go for the rides knew how much this lake is inhabited by homeowners of some very expensive real estate, who don’t want Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours on Lake Hamilton.

The value of the homes have decreased or caused the home not to sell due to the noise  when realtors are showing the properties.   Some of the wildlife on the island have left.  We miss our Crump Road crows that would come in the fall.  I hope that people will read this and decide to go with another airboat company.

If you like the sound of airboats inside your home all day every day of the year, I have a beautiful lakefront home that I will sell you.

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems: Overwhelming Loud Noise Lake Hamilton, Florida. We invited friends over for Sunday brunch on our patio.  A few minutes into the meal I said: “Please speak up.  Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tour is drowning you out.  Shall we finish our brunch inside?”  What is the point in having a big, comfortable patio if it can’t be used?  Lake Hamilton is 80% residential.  Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours is not welcome here!

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints Disturbs the Peace Lake Hamilton, Florida. It’s a holiday weekend, so Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours are grinding away continuously.  Noise carries over water very well, so there is no letup.  I even bought a Dohm “white noise” machine to block the incessant moaning and groaning of the airboats, but it isn’t helping very much.  I think I’ll go the local movie theatre today.

It’s noon and although the temperature is 73 degrees, the wind is blowing 17 mph out of the east.  There are white caps covering the lake.  Some poor, unknowing customers are out on Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours on Lake Hamilton, probably soaked to their skins, and thinking they are seeing “The Everglades”!

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: No Respect for Wildlife Lake Hamilton, Florida

Reviews Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: No Respect for Wildlife Lake Hamilton, Florida. It’s a beautiful day on Lake Hamilton.  My beach was full of several different water fowl including coots, water turkeys and great blue heron.  Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours just went by on his “Nature” Tour, and every single bird flew away.  His business is a disruption and threat to nature.
