Captain Duke’s Airboat Rides is the premier airboat tour near Orlando, Florida. If you are visiting Orlando get ready for an exciting Central Florida Everglades Adventure. Take a thrilling airboat ride ride down the historical St. Johns River, through the swamps and marshy grasslands, some areas lined with moss draped cypress trees. Each airboat ride is a unique opportunity to see alligators, great blue heron, egrets, turtles and more in their natural habitat. Many travelers are acquainted with Florida’s well known theme park attractions, but we want to showcase a different side of Florida that many travelers have yet to experience. We want to highlight the awe and wonder that exist within the natural surroundings of the Sunshine State. Captain Duke has an uncanny intuition and an exceptional eye for finding the wildlife. Because the St. Johns River is loaded with wildlife, this is the perfect airboat tour for the entire family. We are Orlando's best airboat rides excursion. We invite you to come take one of our airboat rides and see for yourself, you won't regret it.
