About Airboat Rides Melbourne
We believe that when you go for an airboat tour that you should experience a real airboat adventure! Your safety is our primary concern but our goal is for you and your family to have an exciting airboat experience while skimming across the St Johns River and swamps and to share as much information with you as possible about the alligators, wildlife, birdlife, fish and plant life that abounds on the marsh. Capt Mike has been in the area for for over fifty years & grew up hunting & fishing on the St Johns River! We offer basic airboat rides lasting 30-40 minutes but we are known for our educational eco tours lasting 60 or 90 minutes. We also do early tours & evening tours by appointment April thru October. We do our tours strictly by reservation so you don't have to stand in line or wait for enough people to show up to fill the boat! We do have a four person minimum but we can usually pair you up with others. Capt Mike is a member of Bass Pro Shops Pro Staff & has done fishing shows with Bill Dance Outdoors, Jimmy Houston Outdoors, Johnny Morris,Tony Stewart & others along with magazine articles in Outdoor Life, Guy Harvey, Florida Travel, Spacecoast Living, Florida Today & the Miami Herald newspapers.

We had great time on our airboat ride with Captain Mike! It was a last minute plan, called, and was able to book a sunset tour for the same day. We were lucky to see a couple gators,a wild pig, and some beautiful birds. Best part was what we learned about the St. John River, and the alligator habitat. Very enjoyable evening!

We had to contact them to set up a time and he got back to us immediately. Kids love the cruising and sharp turns and also enjoyed hearing the history
