Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Obtrusive Noise Frustrates Lake Hamilton, Florida Residents

Last week, walked out on my dock to enjoy the peace and beauty of late afternoon.  The white pelicans were on the lake–such a treat to see them. Unfortunately, the airboat was on the lake. The loud droning noise of the airboat carries across the lake and drives out any thought of quiet bird watching. The airboat was on the far side of the lake; I could hardly see it. But the noise blasts across the water, through the bulrushes and into my boathouse with a vengeance.  After 10 minutes, I gave up and went back in the house, closing the door against the noise. I could still hear the airboat, even with the doors and windows closed.

Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems Scares Wildlife Lake Hamilton, Florida

Ratings Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Problems Scares Wildlife Lake Hamilton, Florida. One of the real pleasures of living on Lake Hamilton USED TO BE all the bird life that populated the lake.  Now that Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours’ boats are running, the bird life is becoming more and more scarce.  We look forward each year to the beautiful white pelicans coming to the lake as they migrate.  They arrived to be met by the loud, vibrating roar of the airboat engines.  The pelicans normally stay on the lake for days, resting and feeding.  That was the normal behavior, prior to the running of the airboats, which frightens them and makes them scatter to other lakes.  The pelicans are affected as well as all of the other wading and nesting birds.  Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours advertises as a “nature” tour.   Based on the negative impact caused by the airboats, I would suggest that it is anything but!  There are other tours available elsewhere that have more concern and respect for the birds, wildlife and environment.

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: Disturbs the Peace Lake Hamilton, Florida

Feedback Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours Complaints: Disturbs the Peace Lake Hamilton, Florida. Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours has been quite noisy on the lake during the 16th – 18th of February.  We had company at that time and could not hear ourselves think at times, since we live right on the lake.  One of those days we took our pontoon out for a ride and observed Captain Fred either dropping off or picking up passengers at a private dock on the north side of the lake.  We had not observed that before.  We also observed a bird take flight from its nest as Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours came by in the noisy airboat and believe the noise emitted by the boat is not a causal factor.  One of our main concerns is the habitats of the birds on Lake Hamilton and in our opinion, Captain Fred’s Airboat Nature Tours is a deterrent for birds and their habitats.

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.

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.
