    What to Expect
    This one hour trip is the perfect introduction to air boating! Slide through palm covered canals, twist around mangrove covered islands and breathe in the salty air while nature dances all around you! We’ll take you across portions of Battle Creek, Sam’s Bayou, Salt River and the Little Homosassa, even exploring Shiver’s Bay before returning to our home dock. Affordable for the whole family and fun for all ages, this fun ride will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated!

    If you are looking for adventure and were born to be wild….then this is the boat ride for you! Brace yourself, hold-on, feel the speed explode beneath you as we twist and turn through the mangroves, canals and backwaters of Homosassa! 

    Airboats explore areas that other boats simply can not go and will leave your head buzzing with excitement! Wildlife abounds as we glide off the beaten trail and head back in time to the beauty of ‘Old Florida’s Nature Coast’! 

    Feel alive again as our USCG Captain operates in confidence for an adrenaline rush that leaves many with goosebumps! Ride, slide, glide! Let out a whooping Yee-Haw! Hold on to your hat and find your smiling adventure seeker amid the birds, dolphins and fish. For families and thrill-seekers alike, exploring the backwater salt-marshes where other boats can not delivers a Pure Florida Experience that will take your breath away!

    • Led by USCG Master Captain and eco-tour guide
    • Bottled water is available complimentary

    What to Bring

    We provide you with everything you need to enjoy this adventure, but there are a few things that we recommend. Sunscreen and insect repellant are a good idea, as are sunglasses for eye protection. During the cooler months, dress accordingly! Pants, jackets, even a small blanket will help to keep you warm. We provide you with bottled water and headgear for ear protection. Airboats are loud! If you wear a hat, you may have to hold onto your head, so we don’t recommend it!

    What should I expect to see?Every day is different when it comes to wildlife, and we highly recommend the morning ride if you hope to view wild animals. The variety of birds will amaze you, we often have dolphin sightings, sometimes manatee, and on a very good day, we may even spot a gator or two!!

    Captain Irish Dave was fun, knowledgeable and funny. I highly recommend the airboat safari...especially if you’ve never been on an airboat ride. And remember to ask for Irish Dave. You won’t be disappointed.
