Didn't know what to expect, but this was a great trip. Our guide was very good and pointed out numerous Gators and facts about them to us and we also saw a Bald Eagle take a fish from the water. At the end of the trip you also get the chance to hold a Gator which was something new for... More

We planned our first family vacation with our adult children and grandchildren and chose to go to the Cape Kennedy area of Florida so they could see where my husband worked on the Space Shuttle program in the 1990s. We avoided Epcot, Sea World and Disney because it was Spring Break. We wanted to experience the real Florida. The first... More

We did the airboat ride and was very pleased. Not only did we see upwards of 50 gaters but the driver was very good and instructing and teaching us about gaters and the surrounding area on the St. Johns river. This is well worth the price. it's a one hour ride up and down the river. At the end they... More

We purchased this airboat ride coupled with a trip to Jungle Adventure up the road. This was a great alternative to the big corporate attractions in Orlando, and a beautiful way to experience Florida's natural beauty. Our captain added some thrills to our 25 minute ride into the Everglades, and provided knowledgeable commentary. The gift shop is not to be... More

We brought a group (reserved ahead) of 54 ppl and Airboat Rides at Midway made everything wonderful. Each person got to hold and have pic taken with alligator, we went out on 4 boats at one time so no one had to wait, saw tons of gators. The headsets were a great touch so we could all really share the... More

There is a family feel to the day! I was looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed meeting pork chop the pig and the birds. The boat ride was amazing. You can hear everything through the head sets. I saw bald eagles including a baby. There were plenty of gator of all sizes. I came off... More

Having done slow and quiet swamp tours I thought this may be a little too much by way of noise and commercialism. Not so. The airboat ride was indeed noisy, but we had ear protection and the ride itself was sooooo much fun! Yes, we again saw the alligators, turtles, birds, etc. It was so much fun that I would... More

My wife and I took this trip expecting to see a couple gators and the typical birds and scenery. We were absolutely amazed at the number of Gators we saw, how close we were able to get to them and the awesome scenery. The folks that run this attraction are really down to earth and take pride in giving you... More

The AirBoat Ride on the St. John River was a GREAT way to see wildlife, especially alligators. We must have seen at least 75 adults in an hour. Our guide was excellent and his commentary on what we were seeing was very good. The earphone system worked very well. The airboat appeared in very good condition. We recommend it.
