Air boat ride was fun and interesting. We have been on air boat rides before but it was still exhilarating and the driver was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. There are headphones that work very well and allow you to hear the driver and other passengers. The office/store has some very interesting animals on view including a cockatoo that... More

Though the engine from the boat was very loud, they provide headphones for your ears and a devise for you to speak into. We enjoyed this adventure. Would do it again.

A great time in a cool location. A very unusual and exhilarating experience. I have never seen cattle grazing knee-deep in water. The captain was amazing. Friendly business

Smart to bring a light jacket or over shirt. A pair of google would have been nice as we were in the front row and when you get going its tough on the eyes and very breezy. I wont give any spoilers but never thought we would see animals out in the bogs. Besides gators of course. Our captain gave... More

We took the airboat ride from Midway on the recommendation of a relative and were not disappointed. Matt, our captain, was very personable and knowledgeable. Our tour was shortly after Hurricane Matthew, so the water was higher than normal. We saw 8 - 10 'gators and TONS of birds. And we got to hold a 2-year old 'gator. Very cool!!!

Vacation in Titusville every spring and my wife and I try to get here ever time we go. Seeing the bald eagles and alligators is truly breath taking. Love this place and the pot belly pig that greets you inside!!

Came here for a day out with the family. We journeyed a long way to visit the Everglades for an airboat ride last year but I feel like the Airboat Ride At Midway was way better! We arrived at the main building around mid day, it wasn't busy and the store has a very homely vibe to it. You can... More
