Be on the lookout for alligators and bald eagles onboard your 15-passenger airboat. Glide through the fresh water marshes and protected wetland hammocks within the heart of Central Florida. Your guide will narrate interesting facts during your ride to Lone Cabbage, an old style Florida fish camp on the banks of the beautiful St. Johns River. Here, you can see a wildlife presentation and you’ll get a chance to hold a live alligator. Then, travel at speeds of almost 40 mph into pristine sections of fresh water and into a natural cypress swamp. Your eco-guide boat captain will point out local wildlife such as alligators, eagles and birds. At the end of your tour, a gator snack and refreshments will be provided.
