We took the ride with three other couples and all loved it. Capt Mike was very cordial, informative and professional. As we headed out , a storm quickly developed He turned the boat around and brought us back quickly to the dock as the rain started. After waiting under shelter for about 45 minutes, the rain stopped. Mike wiped down... More

We had a great time exploring the marshes and inlets of the St. Johns River! I had never been on an airboat and it was a fun ride! I was amazed that the boat could just skim over vegetation barely leaving a track, and we were able to get up close to the wildlife we saw. Most unusual to me... More

They are a great place to go and well worth the money. The captain is really enjoyable and knowledgeable about the river and where the alligators would be.

The airboat ride was enjoyable and the captain of our boat was very informative and knowledgeable. He was very respectful of the locations he brought us to unlike some other companies who raced through preserve areas to give their guests a "thrill" ride.

Spent a morning looking for gators all around the St. John's River. Sister, husband and two teenage daughters. First trip of the morning (went out approximately 9:20am), while still early for a lot of gators, did see a few including some babies. But gators take a back seat to the fun of boating around the Cypress groves and up and... More

What an absolute blast!!!! We had so much fun and even managed to learn a few things. We got to see gators, cattle, horses, birds and beautiful scenery. At the end of the tour we all got to hold a tiny gator. I would do this again and change nothing.

Took the family on an outing when we had relatives in for a visit. These guys at Midway airboats gave us a wonderful trip. It was so fun as we scooted over the water sometimes only inches deep. We got to see wild hogs, Alligators and lots of them, as well as man, many different varieties of birds. The ride... More

We had our daughter and son-in-law and grand children with for this airboat ride. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He showed us many gators and when one got to close to the airboat, he told us not to move and be still. He showed us the baby gators in a very quiet cove. This place has 1300 squares acres of...

My family and I were in the Orlando area and looking for an airboat ride. We set an appointment for a private tour on June 25, only to realize that I had confirmed the wrong date. I called two days before to see if they were able to reschedule. The staff at airboatridesatmidway.com were kind, helpful and very accommodating! The... More

This was a stop on the way down to south Florida and it was well worth it. I went with a friend and two kids (9 and 11), and we all had a blast. Reservations are recommended and they seemed pretty busy, even on a Thursday they seemed pretty full up. We saw so many gators and cows and other... More
