Nothing in Melbourne, you will need to travel west on Highway 192 to Camp Holly or SR520 to Lone Cabbage fish camp. With all the rain we are having you may not see many gators as they have many places to hide when the water is up. I would try early morning or early evening for best times or check with both places to see which time is better.

Also meant to say there are some further south in Indian River County which would also be towards the west. Once is called Florida Cracker Airboats, I have not tried them but the IR County area has lots of airboat grounds on the western area of the county near Fellsmere.

Melbourne Florida

Melbourne has two locations, Airboat Rides Melbourne Florida.com and if you want a River boat 2 hour cruise try goodnaturedrivertours.com we went today on the riverboat cruise and saw lots of dolphins and it was a very good tour and it was amazing! If your more into the wild side of nature alligators etc try airboatridesmelbournflorida.com I've been to lone cabbage and although it was o.k. it wasn't the best.
