What To Expect
Explore backwater salt marshes and estuaries; pass by the historical Indian Mounds; and cruise into the clear, shallow waters of the gulf, dotted with islands. This is a speed tour, so hold on and enjoy the twisting, turning tour through marshes and canals.
Select your preferred departure time when booking; morning is the best time to spot wildlife. Birds are common, and there are often dolphin sightings; if you're really lucky, you may even spot an alligator.
Note: It is recommended that you bring sunscreen, insect repellent, and sunglasses. In the cooler months, dress accordingly in pants, a jacket, and maybe even a small blanket to keep you warm. Bottled water and headgear for ear protection are provided (airboats are loud). Hats are not recommended, as they may fly off your head.
