Airboat Birding Along the St Johns River
February 2, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$90.00
Meet at the Highway 50 Boat Ramp, 28500 East Colonial Drive, Christmas, FL 32709. You must be in reasonably good shape in order to get up into the high seats on the airboat. Dress warmly (waterproof clothing is best) as it will be very chilly out on the water. There are no restroom facilities here.
Join a local airboat guide, a professional birding guide and other birders on this exclusive small personal tour as you glide along marshes and into a secluded cypress swamp to view an abundance of wading birds, waterfowl and raptors on this special adventure. The St Johns River floodplain is only accessible by airboat due to the shallow depth. Your guides will point out the habitats and ongoing activity of the many species that are found here. Other wildlife, including alligators, may be encountered. You will enjoy the exclusive combination of Captain Mike, a fifth generation Floridian who grew up on here on the river, and a professional birding tour guide. This is a great opportunity for birders who prefer to avoid strenuous walking or hiking.
