Take an airboat ride and escape to nature! Enjoy fresh air and the wildlife in its natural habitat, while skimming the surface of the St. Johns in one of our airboats. Camp Holly has been providing courteous, professional services in the way of hunting and fishing since 1923.Theres a number of activities to choose from at Camp Holly. Eco tours are available in the afternoons, live music on the weekends, and you can always stop by for a night ride. Jump in your car and drop by the camp and spend a little time in a very relaxing atmosphere.

Take the drive to Midway Airboat instead

Only 30 minutes compared to Midway which is an hour for about the same price. Also you don't get to hold a baby alligator afterwards at Camp Holly.

We first want to say thanks! Let me say, for a 15 minute airboat ride, a haunted trail and food on site...it was pretty reasonable! Food was a little pricey....but delicious! The only bad part about the haunted airboat rides were the mosquito control....which there was none!!

We have a lot of visitors and we always take an airboat ride. Camp Holly is by far the best and now the only company we use. They are always friendly and competent. We had a very bad experience at Lone Cabbage and do NOT recommend ever using them.

Not worth the $30 per person 35 minute ride into the remote parts of the river where you see an alligator or two..not much narration. Maybe just go for the boat ride and don't expect too much.

We had a wonderful experience taking an airboat ride with Captain Matt. There were six of us, include a 2-1/2 year old, and we all enjoyed it. The river was almost at flood stage and water was really high, and we still got to see a bunch of alligators and other wildlife. I would certainly recommend this adventure.

Just landed in Orlando and hit this place on the way to see family. Wasn't sure what to expect but ran into an incredible guide. "Captain Matt", 13 years into this, whipped is around the swamp and added a ton of interesting information about the river, alligators, and other animals. He was great at spotting them and circling back for... More

While on our way back from a business trip in Melbourne, I saw the signs along the road and pulled in. The staff was VERY friendly, and the Air boat ride was both of our first rides. Our tour captain was very knowledgeable of the area- especially since he used to own the place. The beer was cold and affordable,... More

Great airboat tour with a knowledgable captain. Capt. Matt had a lot of good information about the area and took us on a good tour of the St. John's river.

I took my wife and daughter there for an experience. Everyone was great, we held an alligator, and the boat ride was fun.

Great experience for my wife, 7 year old daughter, and I. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. Gators, birds, and all sorts of fresh water animals were plentiful to see. The ride lasted about 40 minutes and was worth the price. We all had a great time!
