On a visit to Indian River County you must take advantage of the nature that abounds! An airboat tour of the marshlands in the western part of the county is just the ticket. Airboats are a fast and fun way to view some of our nature close-up.
From the first cold spell in the Fall until the water warms in the Spring, Florida’s state reptile, the American alligator, can be seen basking on the leaves and in the grass beds of the marsh. Some of the birds start nesting in the middle of Winter and others continue nesting until mid-summer when most of the flowers of the marsh are blooming and the alligators are feeding. All year long there is something in the marsh to see.
Sit back and enjoy a guided tour through one of the most pristine pieces of nature in our area. Get some insight into the life of an alligator, the nature and ecology of the marsh and some history of the area. An airboat tour is a fun and exciting way to spend part of your visit to Indian River County.
