Come ride one of the most magnificent airboat tours in the state of Florida! You’ll see sunken shrimp boats, islands, views of the city skyline, huge ships, marshes, and we often see huge schools of dolphins, sting rays, sharks, manatees, turtles, otters, herons, egrets, bald eagles and Osprey! Sometimes it’s just an airboat thrill ride, as we cannot guarantee the wildlife. However, you’re sure to enjoy the state-of-the-art, almost 600 horsepower, 18 passenger air boat! It’s the closest thing to flying without leaving the water. Also, it’s probably the best, high-tech and fastest, airboat in the states! It has luxurious upholstered seating and is piloted by a licensed US Coast Guard master captain, who is very knowledgeable about the local waterways and history of the local area.
