We had family visiting from NJ and we usually contact Seth with Switchgrass Airboat whom we love, but, he was out of town for the month. We were encouraged by his office to reach out to Mike at A St. John's Airboat Tours. We were SO pleased that we did! Mike's wife was so very pleasant and set up our appointment! We arrived at the boat dock and Captain Mike arrived shortly after with his very cool Airboat! He was so friendly and personable!! We headed off on a great adventure! My NJ guests, who had NO IDEA we were going on an airboat, were THRILLED with the excitement of the ride and Mike's knowledge of the plants, geography and wildlife in this area. He grew up on these acres of marshes and we enjoyed hearing his childhood adventures with his grandfather and dad! We saw amazing wildlife and got a true understanding of how different things were around that area a couple hundred years prior. We visited an old indian mound where we found pieces of pottery from when they inhabited that area. He picked wild guava for us to taste. Although this was my 4th or 5th airboat tour, this was my first with Captain Mike. I'm amazed at how much I learned and enjoyed this trip. We were met at the dock by his lovely wife who took photos of us coming back in. She is such an asset to their business! I felt like I knew her forever! If you're ever in the area, I would highly recommend you take some time to enjoy an airboat tour with Mike or Seth at Switchgrass Airboat tours.

Gators is what the old girl came for and gators is what she got.
18 gators over 3m made it really memorable for sure
The captain was great fun and very entertaining.
Real fun ride

A friend and I went on the 1.5 Sunset tour and the views were just breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL! Captain Mike was hands down the best tour guide ever, he shared a lot of the history about the land, river and the wildlife out there. We even saw some bald eagles and their nest along with a ton of other birds and gators. The boat ride in itself was amazing, its so smooth and nothing compared to a normal boat, it like like we were just gliding along. When ever I'm back in Florida I will most definitely be back for another tour.

Captain. Mike is a national treasure. His knowledge and expertise make this air boat experience an excursion that you’ll cherish in your memory. The beauty of the St. John River basin is extraordinary and not to be missed. Captain Mike is a genuine man and a pleasure to have met!

Must do!! You will love it! We have been vacationing in Florida for over 30 years and have always wanted to go on an airboat ride. We previously went on a large group airboat ride in the Everglades, but it was not even close to as much fun as Capt. Mikes airboat ride. He is very knowledgeable about the area and a very experienced Airboat Captain. This is probably one of the best experiences of my life - highly recommend!!

My family and I just got back from Titusville, FL. One thing we wanted to do while there was experience an airboat ride. There are several options in the area, but we chose St Johns River Airboat. I am so glad we did! If you want an authentic ride with a local guide, rather than a touristy operation, this is the one to choose. Captain Mike was really knowledgeable about the plants and animals, and we learned a lot. He took time to find alligators for us to see, showed us a variety of birds, an eagle and nest, Native American swamp mounds, etc. The ride was a mix of exhilarating speed and leisurely drifting around the bald cypress trees. He was even kind enough to take a family photo for us. Ear protection is provided, and the boat is nice and well maintained. His wife was a gem! After our ride was previously cancelled due to Hurricane Nicole, she worked things out to help us get a ride before we had to leave Florida. It was very easy to correspond with her, reserve our spot, get updates, etc. through texting. Thanks for the great memory! (I'll leave some photos as soon as I get the chance) :)

This was an extraordinary trip! We did the sunset tour and saw more alligators than we could count (stopped counting at 100!), heron, ibis, two bald eagles, cows, turkey vultures as we powered through the St John River with Captain Mike on his fabulous airboat.

Captain Mike gave us the best tour of the St. John River! We saw plenty of wildlife, including a flock of pick roseate spoonbill birds, and lots of gators!! It was amazing and riding the airboat was like flying. We especially loved the cypress swamp! Great value, amazing tour. Thanks!

OMG! All I can say is... AMAZING! I wish I could give this review more stars but 5 is the max it allows. I took my 14-year old son just trying to occupy his time while his twin sister and mom were out of town over the weekend and what an incredible time it was. He didn't stop talking about it the entire 45-minute drive back to our home in Longwood. I have lived here my entire life and can honestly say this particular Airboat Tour (St. John's River Airboat Tour) is probably the best kept secret in Central Florida. A great time with an unbelievable guide (Capt. Mike). And we saw TONS of gators, bald eagles, and other wildlife. We will definitely be going back when my wife and daughter return to town. My son said to me on the way home, "Dad, that was the best thing we've done in a long time, and probably times X10 what I thought it would be! Thanks for taking me!" Dennis Warren, Longwood, Fl.

The trip was incredible! WOW! Denny that took our reservations was extremely friendly, kind, easy to work with and had great customer service! Mike the boat captain was outstanding! Mike was friendly, very knowledgeable, a great driver, and provided a spectacular tour. The boat was clean and comfortable. We saw tons of animals and over a hundred gators🐊 of all sizes. Truly the BEST part of our trip to Florida! I highly recommend this adventure and especially this company!! Such a AWESOME morning!!!
