Airboat Rides at Midway
Slide across the meandering St.Johns River marshes on your "Wildlife Airboat Adventure", not on a lake, but a REAL SWAMP. Each one hour airboat ecotour is a unique opportunity to see and photograph alligators, bald eagles, great blue heron, other wildlife, and an Indian Burial Mound from a US Coast Guard Inspected and Certified CUSTOM AIRBOAT with ELEVATED SEATING! Listen though VOICE ACTIVATED HEADSETS as your USCG Master Captain shares his knowledge of the REAL FLORIDA "Outback". You might even see some cowboys on airboats rounding up free range cattle!!
AirBoat Rides At MIDWAY (aka Midway AirBoat Rides) is Orange County's oldest airboat ride company dating back to the 1930's (Midway Fish Camp) located half way between the Atlantic Ocean & Orlando, hence the name MIDWAY. Reopened and brought back to life in 2007 and gaining popularity as the Best AirBoat Ride in the Central Florida Everglades. Family run and offering that down home hospitality that attracts Florida natives as well as international visitors. Even PorkChop Pig may greet you at the door with a friendly snort. U.S.C.G. inspected boats assure you of a safe journey into the conservation area along the St.John's National Wildlife Refuge and into the beautiful cypress forest of the Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area.
