Speed across Lake Tohopekaliga and see Florida’s wildlife in a natural environment with a 1-hour airboat tour near Orlando and Cocoa Beach. Watch for alligators and eagles as you explore the shoreline with an experienced captain, and get panoramic views of the low-lying landscape. Enjoy the cool breeze as the flat-bottomed airboat spins and twirls across the surface of the water.
What to Expect
Get away from the theme parks and get in touch with Florida in its natural habitat! Offering daily airboat tours at 9am, 10:15am, 11:30am, 1pm, 2:15pm, and 3:30pm. Florida's beauty will surround you while you ride on a fully-insured airboat. This licensed captain knows how to spot gators, bald eagles, blue herons, endangered snail kites, and other local wildlife. Don’t forget your camera!

Grab a burger or be adventurous and try our delicious gator bites! You can relax at the pavilion while you enjoy the Florida sunshine and scenery. We also offer several beers, domestic, imports and 2 Florida ones! The kids are in luck too! We have Powerade, Water, Orange Juice, Apple Juice and more.

Safety Rules & Important Information:
  • Absolutely no feeding the wildlife and with that, no food allowed on board.
  • We recommend that you wear ear protection when the boat is in full throttle.
  • Children must be seated at all times and sit with at least one adult.
  • For longer tours, we suggest you have plenty of fluids and sunscreen.
  • Stow personal items properly to prevent loss overboard or destruction in the boat prop.
  • We are not responsible for lost or damaged personal belongings.
  • Our captains reserve the right to not allow a person onto a boat tour if he feels they may be under the influence of alcohol or chemical substances that might make the trip unsafe for themselves or others in the party.
  • We proudly accommodate people with most medical conditions and/or disabilities.
  • If the weather is such that the captain feels the tour would be unsafe then we reserve the right to cancel. Therefore, we recommend that you call an hour or two prior to your arrival if you’re unsure about the weather conditions.
  • If your tour has is cancelled due to weather conditions, you’ll receive a full refund.

Captain Jim is the man

We've been to Orlando many times and always do an air boat ride. Some people say it's expensive as sometimes you don't see any animals, they are wild after all and you can't produce them on demand. That never matters to us as we just...More

Exciting and scary tour

We went on the late night tour which was great. The darkness and distant thunderstorm all added to the atmosphere. We saw may alligators at close range.

I would suggest mornings. True, later gets hotter ( although out in the boat is breezy and helps more than I thought). But, in Florida you have to consider the almost routine afternoon showers. We went at 1:00, and a big... More

The small gators that you hold are treated like pets, they do not tape the mouths.
