This St. Johns River airboat tour includes personal headsets, so you won't miss a word of the captain's fun and informative commentary.
What to Expect
Experience a thrilling air boat ride on the St Johns River, and its tributaries that includes a professionally narrated tour of local legends and the rich history of the St Johns River. Observe some of the untouched beauty of the shallow waterways and ecosystem that are in-accessible to most vessels. Experience the exhilaration of an 850 horse power big block V8 engine skimming across the shallows waters that are sometimes less than 2 inches deep. Search for gators that range from 12 inches to 12 feet in length. Help find the remains of Capt Blye, a greedy pirate that sank in the St Johns River less than 50 feet from the shoreline just before making his final escape with a chest full of treasures.

Amazing tour

Amazing tour. Tour lasted 1.5 hrs. We were lucky to encounter 2 alligators swimming right next to the boat. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Well worth it. It was the highlight of our trip. Loved the experience. Will recommend to everyone I know.
