Personal & interactive educational eco tours by airboat on the beautiful St Johns River. Come & learn about the history of the river & the wildlife that calls it home. We don't do the typical 30 minute "boat ride" as our educational eco tours typically last 60-75 minutes. We do have a 6 person (or $240) minimum but we can usually pair you up with others to make the minimum. We also do private group tours and evening tours (5:00 o'clock & later) for an additional $10 per person (6 person or $300 minimum) Bring your sunglasses & sunscreen and make lifelong memories with Capt. Mike!

A wonderful day on the water with Capt Mike. He was so articulate about the gators and their habits. It was a thrill to run through the tall marsh gras. We were afraid it was going to storm, but it only sprinkled, which made it...More

Had never been on a airboat tour before this. Had an absolute blast flying through the swap/marsh land of Florida. A very unique habitat that being from the Midwest one doesn't get to see very often. Big thumbs up to Capt Mike!!! Very highly recommended
