About Instagator Airboat Rides
This is an airboat ride eco tour through the St John River in Cocoa FL. We see an abundance of plant and animal life including alligators. My airboat is brand new and extremely powerful going into areas most cannot get to. It seats only 6 passengers and has live headsets for communication throughout the ride. Iced down bottled water is provided and passengers can bring their own if they wish!

The Instagator Air Boat Ride was spectacular! The experience was “the bomb” by our family of 4 (2 teens). Saw huge alligators, and went about 12 miles on river and land! (His boat is that powerful). It was nice to wear headsets so we can all talk to each other. Fabulous experience. Highly recommend it!

The wife wanted to take an airboat tour. I thought it would be a good time but didn’t expect much. Well, Capt Mike made this one of the highlights our trip. The morning was great for wildlife as we saw hundreds of gators, wild pigs, turtles, birds, and even some roaming cows. The water levels were a little low so we didn’t get to go to some of his hot spots but it didn’t matter we had a great time. The captain shared some of his awesome stories and that just rounded out the whole thing. Loved this tour!! If you are in the area and want a great tour give Capt Mike a call!

My daughter's boyfriend from Massachusetts was in town and we decided that a ride with Captain Mike on the St John's was on the "top of the list" of things he must experience since he'd never been to Florida before. We have booked rides with Instagator for our out of town visitors many times in the past and it's always been an excellent tour. Let me tell you, this time was no different. It once again was a great experience. Captain Mike knows the river like the back of his hand and his airboat is clean and in tip-top condition. We saw so many alligators! He pointed out a bunch of baby alligators hiding along the grasses on the river bank and then we saw the BIG MONSTER alligator that he estimated to be 12' long. We saw many varieties of birds...even some bird eggs, some soft shelled turtles (big and small), many cows, and even a black racer snake. Captain Mike is full of great info about the St John's river eco system and has great stories. On the way back to the dock, he played some fun music that we could hear through the headsets as we cruised along. I highly recommend Captain Mike and Instagator Airboat rides...you won't be disappojnted!!
