On a cruise, one of our choices for the day was this air boat ride. The driver of the large air boat - takes about 20 + - was sensible - not driving like a lunatic to show off, as many do. Knowledgeable and informative, there is an excellent head set enabling riders to clearly understand what is going on.It... More

This was something that we thought would be fun to do while on our Orlando vacation. We were lucky enough to see 4-5 Bald Eagles, cattle, horses, and about a dozen alligators. We saw more than we were anticipating. I would recommend this to anyone.

Staff is very friendly and it is a lot of fun to cruise along the St.John's River. We saw quite a few gators, a wide array of birds in many different colors and a herd of cattle swimming across the river (I knew they could swim, but it is quite a sight). It is neat to feel the speed and... More

Best airboat ride ever! The positive reviews on TripAdvisor are spot on. My expectations are generally pretty high and Midway exceeded my expectations primarily because of our guide, Mike. Informative, educational and yes even stopped to take photos of every party on our boat with the family cameras or phones. I'm sure everyone can agree that it is beyond annoying... More

If you are in the area, you simply have to stop by and take a ride with the airboat! Our captain had great knowledge of the area, and fed us with interesting facts over the headset the whole trip. We got to hold a small gator at the end of the trip, great fun!

Our entire family is still talking excitedly about our entertaining and educational experience. The guide was exceptionally respectful of the wildlife so that the alligators and birds would be available for subsequent airboat travelers to enjoy. He approached them slowly so they would not be frightened off. All of our questions were answered cheerfully and thoroughly.

Longer ride than Camp Holly and lots to see while waiting. No ripoff selling photos. Driver actually will take your photo for you with your own camera. Also no charge for holding baby alligator and no photo fee. We saw a lot and the guide could hear our question through a headset . He also pointed out interesting wildlife. He... More
