This was the first air boat ride for our group of four adults. We all loved it. Captain Ed was our guide. He was knowledable and entertaining as well as safety-conscious. The trip takes you along the St. John's River where we saw alligators, bald eagles, egrets, blue herons, many other birds, and lots of cattle. I'd definitely do it... More

Been there twice certainly going back. Staff is extremely curteous and helpful. Boat captains are knowledgeable and friendly. This is far and away best of the airboat alligator rides we have taken.

Booked this an excursion through our cruise on Oasis of the Seas. Loved the fact that you could hear the captain the entire time through your headset. Saw lots of birds, alligators and cows! Would definitely recommend.

This was my first airboat ride and it did not disappoint. The tour guide was very good and full of fascinating information. Saw so many Alligators I could not even begin to count them. One spot they took us to had over 40 Alligators alone. At the end of the tour you can actually hold a baby gator. Highly recommend.

Having done two airboat rides of the St Johns River I would recommend Midway. Why? Because of the specific location of the tour...the portion of the St Johns this tour travels is wide open pastureland so you can see a lot and far. Because we saw many more alligators on and nearby the river (we even saw a stretch of... More

Thank you so much for great review. We try to set ourselves by being different but also trying to give the best tour on the St. Johns River. The river is wonderful and beautiful. More

We enjoyed this so much more than the madness of the amusement parks! Friendly, efficient staff. We all got to hold an alligator after our tour which the teenagers thought was cool. Saw lots of gators and afterwards drove into town to tour the Canaveral National Seashore for our "beach day". What a great day!

Booked a 9:30am tour for Saturday 17 Dec. Beautiful weather on the day. We were the only ones on the airboat but it was getting busy by the time we returned. The captain was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting to hear something about the history and ecology of the area as well as seeing heaps of gator's.

Really enjoyed "flying" through the "Central Florida Everglades". The captain provided a lot of interest information while we were watching plenty of gators, birds and more. Great equipment (noise head buds) compared to some other place I have seen. Will do it again.

This was just amazing. First you are received by a pig, a turtle and some birds that are roaming free in the gift store (beware of the white one, it will climb on you). Then the ride is great with a lot of knowledge of the river and its history, photo ops, and of course really high speed. We saw... More

I can't say enough how awesome this was! Captain Ed was so incredibly knowledgeable about the gators & the other wildlife in the area! He took us for an hour long boat ride around the St. John's River & back in the little hideaways. He narrated information as we went along, and after the ride, he took us to the... More
