Get the Airboat Ride of your life!
It’s time to RELAX and take in the part of Florida landscape that people are aching to experience. It’s the old-time cabbage palm shores or the cypress forest of Tosohatchee. It’s a stroll across an ancient Indian burial site from long ago while you absorb the silence of an open flood plain, the St. Johns River, and SO much more. At Instagator Airboat Rides, there are no bad charters, just some better than others (depending on the weather and the wildlife) and I really hope you’ll take an afternoon or morning and come join me. I promise, you won’t be disappointed! We offer rides near Cocoa, Florida, which is close to Cocoa Beach, Port Canaveral and Cape Canaveral. An airboat ride is a great local activity for after a cruise out of our port!
Well where do we start!? My INSTAGATOR airboat is a brand new, state-of-the-art Diamondback. It’s 18’ long by 8.5’ wide making this not only a spacious and comfortable airboat but SUPER stable and SAFE! Diamondback recently incorporated the WHITES PERFORMANCE 540 ci big block Chevy motor pushing a whopping 670 horse power at 711 ft lbs of torque! This boat will run dry ground indefinitely and we ARE NOT getting stuck in the mud, I assure you! The airboat is rated by the Coast Guard to carry only 6 passengers making this tour very intimate and personalized. Always remember, in this business, size matters and smaller IS better. When you start messing with greater capacities past 10 people, something has to give and 3 items off the bat are performance, viewing and comfort. If you’re not in front, you’re looking at someone’s back! And when you're touring the St. Johns River in an airboat, you want to be sure you can see everything that Florida's natural beauty has to offer. There’s a place for everybody in this business though, some travel coach, others travel first class… Nuff said!
Another wonderful addition I’ve incorporated, is aircraft style headsets with microphones! This allows for a fully narrated tour and the ability to talk to each other no matter what speed we’re traveling. My headsets operate through a digital sound processor enabling crystal clear communication as well as Bluetooth capability for any music requests… IT’S A BLAST MAN!!! I also furnish a cooler stocked with iced-down waters and if you want to add sodas, beer or snacks, it’s all good! Please try to avoid glass containers, which I know is hard to do with craft brews- I get it. Other than that, get ready to kick back and take it all in, ‘cause like I say, “It’s a journey, not a ride around the block!” (especially night rides). So if you're anywhere around the Space Coast in Brevard, County, give us a call!
