Where to get a fast Airboat ride in Florida?

Post by arcticfly »

Hi.

I´m new here, and this might not be the right place for my question, but here we go: Where to get a fast airboat ride in Florida? I´m visiting Florida with wify in mid october, and we would like to get an airboat trip to try something new. The thing is that we are both speed freaks, and commercial tours is rarely action packed. As we have a RHIB that does 70 mph, a 30 mph airboat ride does not really sound very exiting although seeing the scenery and alligators is cool in it self. Do we have any options that is better (faster) than others? Or are all more or less the same? We will be in both Miami area and Orlando area.

Thank you for your time.

Alex

Thank you for getting back to me. It´s a jungle, and as I said most tourist tours is just too focused on being safe that all fun is out of it. But speed is nothing if you just go straight across a lake. I will look up the info I have gotten. Is 500HK the benchmark to look for. And a smallest possible boat I assume...
