Orlando Airboat Rides

If you think that Airboat tours are only limited to the South Florida Everglades, think again.

If you’re in Central Florida and can’t be bothered to travel to the Everglades, it is actually possible to get on an airboat tour in the Orlando area.

Where do the Orlando Airboat Rides Go?

To Central Florida’s very own "Everglades": the marshes and swamps of St John’s River.

This history-rich natural attraction teems with wildlife such as eagles, turtles and herons and of course, the Florida alligator!
