The Midway Airboat Ride and our guide (Wayne) were excellent. We have taken other tours and this one definitely was superior to the others. Also the management and the facilities were excellent. We could not have been more pleased. We enjoyed all the animals---even got to hold an alligator.

Midway Airboat Rides was AMAZING! The Captain made it a tour instead of boat ride! So informative and the Alligators were Everywhere along with several other Wildlife. Experience of a Lifetime. Thank You!

Purchased a coupon for air boat ride at a charity auction just to help a charity. We didn't necessarily plan on using the coupon. We had an out of town guest so we decided to take her with us on the ride. It was a cold Florida day but decided to dress warmly and try the ride. It was great fun. We went on the St. John's River and it was beautiful. We saw lots of birds, but my sole purpose was to see alligators. I stopped counting at 50. It was amazing. I have lived in Florida for more than 6 years and have not spotted an alligator. I think that is a good thing, but I want to see some. This was a perfect opportunity to see alligators, wonderfully beautiful birds and some unusual swamp area. You must try this, but make sure you dress for the weather whether it is hot or cold.

Wow! I did this tour mainly for my mother-in law because she always wanted to go.
I did the everglades twice, & I didn't like the loudness.. but this one was soo much better!
1. the headphones are so good.. they filter 90% of the noise.. & you can hear the tour guide & even ask questions!
2. The tour guide ( Charlie was soo good, he always pointed out all the animals & narrated beautifully, & never too much. He took his time, & they even helped with our mother ( who walks with a cane from the a stroke) but they were very kind & patient with our special needs.. THANK YOU CHARLIE!!)
3. The scenery was just spectacular.. we went in Jan & the weather was perfect 70's.. we saw tons of gators ( all sizes) & tons of beautiful birds inc. pink spoon bills, white pelicans, also horses on the marsh, crossing the water.. & cows..
The price was a bit expensive, wish it was a little longer, but I'd do it again, & think you should too :)

We had a great day and saw so many gators! Charlie was very easy going and knowledgeable. He could spot a gator from quite a distance. He also was able to point out many other wildlife and took the time to slow down to allow us to take off our head sets to listen to the peace and quiet. One of the highlights was taking us up a creek back into a wooded area to experience an area we would never have been able to get to on our own. It was definitely a highlight of our trip!
