If your in the Melbourne, Fl area and want to see some gators up close and personal Midway AirBoats is a great way to see them. Very friendly staff and excellent tour boat drivers. Tour lasts about an hour and there is all sorts of wildlife. IMPORTANT-Gators stay underwater when it's really hot so it's best to go when the... More

Fantastic experience here, travelling on the St Johns river, makes a real contrast to taking a ride on one of the lakes, which we have also done. We saw lots of wildlife including alligators and the boat's skipper really knew his stuff which made for an enjoyable and informative trip. Look out for Pork Chop pig, but don't let him... More

We went during April when the alligators and other wildlife were out in force. Lots to see and the guide really knew his critters. Riders are equipped with 2-way communications with the guide. We will do it again. Check out their website for discounts and special offers.

This has to be the BEST airboat experience in the area. This is not a just a regular company, is frankly a family owned and managed business with a personal touch. Charlie our airboat captain was not only knowledgable and fun but extremely professional. This airboat ride company will ensure you get the most for your money. They will take... More

Best airboat experience in the area. We have been many times and all the drivers are excellent and knowledgable about the river, the Eco system, the plants, the birds and of course the gators. We learn something new each time. Don't go when the water levels are down. And if it's really cold the gators will be at the bottom... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We nearly went with another company, but we are so glad we picked Midway. We had Ken who was just the best, so helpful and extremely knowledgeable of his subject. I can't recommend this trip enough. Thanks. Mark, Denise and Family

My husband, son and I live in the Orlando area and have boated on the St. John's River but never have we seen the beauty of the marsh lands and swamps. Everyone needs to see this side of Florida. Captain Ken was a wealth of knowledge making it even more enjoyable. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon... we'll be back... More

We're a family from the Netherlands and did this airboat tour back in 2011, we're back in Florida this year (2015) and looked for (another) tour, and coincidently we ended up at the same airboat company and we were very happy that we did!
