First ever air boat ride. It was fun - nice people, really nice boats and equipment. Gators were hard to find and only got some limited views of a couple of them -- the season apparently will affect your experience with that. Beautiful river and scenery though. The bonus beyond the boat tour is the cool animals they have around... More

They give about a one hour ride and we have gone out 4 different times and each time see something different, but ALWAYS see Gators along with other things in the swamp and the guides have all been knowledgeable and friendly - and Say HI to the Pig, I think his name is Porkchop ;-) Highly recommend this for a...

This was my 2nd ride with this company. On our last ride the weather was looking bad, but we were assured that we would still get to go on our ride. Half way into it, rain started coming down and lightening and thunder were very close. Our guide did a great job reassuring us that we would be okay and... More

Spent over $80 on this today for just two of us, and after driving all the way from Daytona it was a huge let-down because they wait until they have your money and are on the boat before they tell you that the gators are out moving about in the winter time here. Apparently it's just too hot in the... More

When family and friends come, I always enjoy taking them on excursions where they can see Florida. Raw, real and unspoiled. This airboat company will provide that experience for you. It's beautiful to glide across the water and marshy land, seeing the huge number of birds and gators in their natural, untouched, unspoiled habitat. Mother earth. It's a great trip... More

I drive by Airboat Rides at Midway everyday to and from work. It has always been on my bucket list but I just never got around to it. Last weekend my wife, two sons, and myself decided to go. It was AWESOME! The staff was great, the boats are really cool, and there is nothing like cruising the Saint Johns... More

We did the AirBoat ride as part of an excursion while cruising on Royal Carribean's Grandeur of the Seas. We arrived around midday, and got off to a bit of a bumpy start in that our daughter's headset, as well as my own, were not working. We didn't realize this until we were already out on the water, but as... More

This was my 2nd trip with them. We loved the July 2013 trip so much that we went again when my parents came to visit from the UK. The Captains are always informative and knowledgeable. They keep things entertaining as well as being considerate of the ecology of FL. The office/Shop staff were informative when we called to book and... More

Found online in a search and tried it out. My 10 year old said it was the best part of our week trip to the area. The guide was knowledgeable and took interest in the kids showing them all the things that could be found. Left the impression upon them about what Florida could have looked like without Disney. Perfect... More
