My husband and I went on the Midway ariboat rides a couple years ago. We loved it so much ,we brought our kids during a visit to the Disney parks. The Midway is about a 45 minute drive from Disney and very easy to find. During the ride you get head sets to quiet the noise and talk to each other. We saw lots of alligators,birds, cows, ect... After the ride everyone got to hold a baby alligator. We then headed to the beach only 30 minutes away. Perfect day break from Disney.

This is an attraction we found on line and were looking forward most to see on our very first ever vacation in our 37 years of marriage. We were not disappointed with one second of it. It was informative, exciting and unique. There were gaters, birds, trees, and flowers that I've never seen before. The guide was very informative, and answered all the questions people had. I would and have recommended to everyone we've spoken to about our trip to Florida. When we go to Florida again, it will be one of the first places we will visit again. The only down side to it that I could see for anyone would be that it was cold for some people (Dec. 29) but as we came from Nova Scotia , we had our winter coats and were more then warm enough.

Their setup is very nice. Great gift shop to browse while waiting for our airboat ride. Even has some fun animals inside and outside to entertain you with! Has a nice deck you can have a drink on before or after your ride. We went with another couple, but it is very kid friendly as we had a few kids on our airboat as well. Adults can take alcoholic beverages on the airboat ride if you are interested. Ride has headphones with speaker system built in so guide can be giving tour on the fly and we can ask questions on the fly as well. Saw lots of animals and it was a beautiful ride! I'd do it again! 1 hr tour. And they were the cheapest around to boot!!!! Loved it!

The staff are very informed and want to give you the best experience possible. They are on the St. Johns River and it changes with the seasons. Lots of Gators,Eagles,and migratory Birds. If you'r not into nature the boat ride is fun by it's self. Bring a camera and a jacket depending on the weather. We have tried other airboat rides, but we keep coming back here. Something new every time we go out. Well worth the price for an hour of fun and nature!
