“If you wish to take an Airboat trip this is the one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This Airboat ride has been re opened after a major revamp.
It is one of the best in Florida.

The passengers are given ear muffs / noise protectors BUt they have microphones
so one my speak to the Captain.

This Airboat attraction is on the Left on Hwy 50 After Christmas & before Titusville.

This would be about 1 hours drive from the Disney area

“Neat experience on a COLD day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

As part of a cruise excursion we stopped here for an airboat ride. It was a cold dreary day but we made the best of it. The miked headsets provided an interesting narration and the fast ride was sure a thrill.

Didnt see any alligators due to the cold weather but saw quite a few other birds and such.

Had a nice time.

“There's a gator”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

I would reserve a tour at this place a few days into your planned vacation. After walking miles and miles through theme parks, it is so nice to sit back, relax and enjoy this delightful adventure. Headsets to hear everyone and a knowledgeable staff with friendly accents. You get to see the beautiful sights and gators, gators, gators. My son took a picture holding one after the ride.

I've been twice in two years. Great boats, great headsets for communications, and very knowledgable guides. You will not be disappointed.
