Explore the freshwater tributaries along the scenic St. Johns River on a thrilling airboat ride that skims through a maze of shallow waterways. Watch for alligators, manatees, birds, and snakes as you speed through the watery Florida landscape, and learn the story of an infamous pirate ship that sank in the St. Johns River. 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.
