Port Canaveral, United States-port

In modern times, the central section of Florida's Atlantic Coast has come to be known as the Space Coast. Though the former Soviet Union won the "space race" by launching the first manned space flight, the U.S. base of operations was Cape Canaveral Air Force Base and its Kennedy Space Center was then home of NASA operations. In stark contrast to the "High Tech" space industry, the surrounding area is a wildlife preserve, and is a major breeding ground for many endangered seabirds.

"real" Florida Airboat Adventure

Light Activity /Walking

Duration: 3 1/2 hours

Tour Code: PCV-003

Come ride with us for an adventure of a lifetime. You will skim across the waters of the St. Johns River at speeds of 30 miles per hour into the scenic natural wetlands of Florida on this 45-60 minute Airboat ride. Our US Coast Guard Certified captains will whisk across both deep and shallow water into the highways of the swamp. Each ride will offer a unique and exhilarating experience of its own.

You will come within hands reach of alligators, snakes, osprey and turtles. Additionally, the opportunity exists to see eagles, hawks, cranes, egrets and herons soaring above. As you race across the water you will have a chance to view some of the picturesque natural habitats of Florida, including pickerel weed and water lilies. To ensure you receive the most out of your tour, the ride will be narrated using noise canceling, voice activated headsets.

Be sure to hold on to your hats as you rip across the St. Johns River on this fun filled educational tour. After your adventure, rejoin your coach for the journey back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes minimal walking; however, participants must be able to make their way on and off the airboat. The tour is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability. Casual clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Ear protection is provided. Wildlife sightings, while very common, are not guaranteed.
