Location: At the St. John’s River, just past Christmas

The cheerfully ramshackle set of buildings perched on the edge of a swampy backwater in the middle of nowhere give Midway Airboat Tours the look of a movie set for some post-apocalyptic Mad Max adventure.

But the featureless desolation of the immediate surroundings is deceptive because a short distance away, over the swamp grass, are the wide expanses of the St. John’s River.

Midway runs economical 30- to 40-minute tours through the edges, nooks, and crannies of this fascinating ecosystem aboard 20-passenger airboats. Each trip covers about six or seven miles with gator sightings the primary goal. During the spring, this is also prime bald eagle habitat.

Night tours are $25 for adults and $15 for children, with a minimum of five adults per boat; 24-hour advance reservations are required. The night tours use spotlights to point out unwary gators.
