Took our niece and her family. Six of us in all. Everyone really enjoyed it. We saw more than 15 large alligators and lots of birds. They have headphones on the airboat so you can hear the guide and also hear each other, much better than other airboat rides I've been on. Also they took us up to see the... More

We really enjoyed this, the driver was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. The ride was relaxing after 5 days of theme parks. Highly recommended.

Fun, comfortable ecotour via airboat through the marshes of the St. John's River. Pleasant and informative guide, beautiful scenery, and lots of interesting wildlife. Our group were all experienced travelers, and all enjoyed the 1 hour tour, plus handling the small gators afterwards.

We had no plans to go on an airboat ride but this was presented to us as an option following our cruise. So glad we went on this. Wildlife, alligators and a fun trip with the captain of the boat. Be aware, it gets noisy, the airboat causes water splashes and you get to hold a small 'gator' at the... More

Our Captain Dan did an outstanding job of taking us through Gator Country all along the way giving us little known facts about things around us. The staff at the store down to earth family friendly people. Don't forget to get pics with their pet pig " pork chop" or go inside and check out their Python. FYI we did... More

This 1hr ride is on a river. Very often, these rides are on a lake. So, this is a very different and richer adventure. Similar to ones we do at Everglades City. We saw many gators. One, in particular, very big. The only thing I recommend, is to slow down when we see gators. That way, we will better see... More

I found this airboat company by searching the Internet and by comparing other companies offering the same type of tours. To be honest we based our decision on all the great reviews and we were not disappointed :) Captain Duke is very knowledgeable and personable. We really enjoyed learning about gators, birds, trees in the swamps. The airboat ride was... More

Once again went to MIdway for the airboat rides.. Took 2 teens and hoped they would enjoy the adventure.. They are girls and had a fantastic time.. Not as many gators this time of year, but the wild life and birds were great.. We had a well educated captain that gave us history of the area and many facts about... More

We were entertaining visitors from Hawaii, and wanted them to experience a taste of Florida. We have tried other vendors in the area, but this is by far the best. The reservation went smooth, with directions, and recommendations for best time to attend. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and knew the most picturesque places in the area.

There are a couple of options for airboat rides in the space coast region....go with midway! Nicest boats and easiest to access. Captain had an authentic friendly feel with knowledge of the area. Plus for the price you get a full hour.
