Stop At:

Following your time at Kennedy Space Center, you'll experience the swamps of Florida on a 30-minute airboat ride. See exotic plants, flowers and wildlife. You'll travel at high speeds, gliding across the waters of the St. Johns River. Wildlife often seen can be alligators swimming in the river, cows walking the banks and many birds flying around the area. The Fish Camp is a very rural area with a little rustic bar and store inside. It has some tables and chairs you can sit back and relax to watch the river whilst waiting for the tour vehicle to return. Its an exciting yet peaceful end to the afternoon.
