My husband was insistent on taking an airboat ride. We were initially happy to find one that will only charge you 50 bucks a person...well, that is...IF you can find at least 2 other people who will share the apparent 200.00 cost. Since we were able to schedule a Saturday ride, sharing the cost with 2 others...we were happy. However, after only 30 minutes into our ride, the airboat was shut off while the tour guide lit up a cigarette, and between puffs told us a bit of history. The ashes were landing on the shoulder of my coat as he puffed away. Another 20-30 minutes later, another smoke break...ashes flying over my face...and another 20-30 minutes later...well, you get the picture. I mentioned to my husband that I never say life jackets nor was advised as to what were supposed to do other then, "If you fall over/off the boat...find the nearest tree stump." If you are going to do an airboat ride, I would wait and go to the Florida Everglades...where you are actually on a swamp...not a lake that is part of the basin.
