Airboat Rides At Midway
See the Florida Outback on the legendary St.John’s River! Established in the 30’s as a fish camp, Airboat Rides At Midway is the place in Florida for the best airboating. It is located on SR 50 midway between Orlando and the Space Coast.
This is Old Florida at its best, you will be greeted by “Pork Chop” the family pot belly pig, snakes and gators. Captain Derrick has made certain there are historic and natural wonders at Midway.
Midway has Coast Guard approval for airboat tours/rides and all of Midway’s captains have Master status with the Coast Guard. The Captains point out sightings such as Great Blue Herons and Roseate Spoonbills. Eagles are often sighted along with free-range cattle, horses, and of course the American Alligators. You will see everything from your Stadium Seating in the boat! You won’t miss a thing.
The Captains know the area and its wildlife and have a great sense of humor. They will set you up with great photo opportunities for the camera buffs. During the hour long tour, you wear interactive voice-activated headsets, this allows the captain to point out spontaneous sightings and you to ask questions. Each ride is unique!
Reservations recommended. Be sure to check out Turtle, the tortoise and the free range honeybee colony exhibit in the gift shop. After the ride, you can actually hold an alligator and take photos. A great experience for the family to enjoy. Open 7 days – (Closed Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day)
