    What to Expect
    This one hour trip is the perfect introduction to air boating! Slide through palm covered canals, twist around mangrove covered islands and breathe in the salty air while nature dances all around you! We’ll take you across portions of Battle Creek, Sam’s Bayou, Salt River and the Little Homosassa, even exploring Shiver’s Bay before returning to our home dock. Affordable for the whole family and fun for all ages, this fun ride will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated!
    If you are looking for adventure and were born to be wild….then this is the boat ride for you! Brace yourself, hold-on, feel the speed explode beneath you as we twist and turn through the mangroves, canals and backwaters of Homosassa! 
    Airboats explore areas that other boats simply can not go and will leave your head buzzing with excitement! Wildlife abounds as we glide off the beaten trail and head back in time to the beauty of ‘Old Florida’s Nature Coast’! 
    Feel alive again as our USCG Captain operates in confidence for an adrenaline rush that leaves many with goosebumps! Ride, slide, glide! Let out a whooping Yee-Haw! Hold on to your hat and find your smiling adventure seeker amid the birds, dolphins and fish. For families and thrill-seekers alike, exploring the backwater salt-marshes where other boats can not delivers a Pure Florida Experience that will take your breath away!

    What to Bring
    We provide you with everything you need to enjoy this adventure, but there are a few things that we recommend. Sunscreen and insect repellant are a good idea, as are sunglasses for eye protection. During the cooler months, dress accordingly! Pants, jackets, even a small blanket will help to keep you warm. We provide you with bottled water and headgear for ear protection. Airboats are loud! If you wear a hat, you may have to hold onto your head, so we don’t recommend it!
    What should I expect to see?Every day is different when it comes to wildlife, and we highly recommend the morning ride if you hope to view wild animals. The variety of birds will amaze you, we often have dolphin sightings, sometimes manatee, and on a very good day, we may even spot a gator or two!!

    Fun cruise through the backwaters... Monkey island was pretty cool and has an interesting story... our captain was knowledgeable about the area and local history, which was very interesting. It was a fun, cheap way to round out our fun for the day.

    We had a blast on the airboat ride at River Safaris & Gulf Charters of Homosassa, FL. Captain Irish Dave made sure the kids had fun by (gently) whipping the boat around corners, and he was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife!

    Took a great airboat ride with Cpt Irish Dave. Beautiful ride through the River out to the Gulf. Got to see some rays, an osprey and other birds. Our first time on an airboat. Would like to do it again during Manatee season.

    Thank savhgrl
