Real Florida Adventures Kennedy Space Center with Airboat Ride

We know there is a LOT to fit into your Orlando holiday which is why Real Florida Adventures have designed this classic combination tour from Orlando that twins a must-do visit to Kennedy Space Center with the thrills and excitement of an Orlando airboat ride and the chance to enjoy some of the real, natural Florida.

It may seem strange to combine the high-tech world of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex with the rural nature of air boating, but the fact is Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral is surrounded by conservation areas and wildlife refuges, so there is a strong link between the two, and you will get the full effect of ultra-modern and nature on one tour!

It all starts with a gentle drive out to Brevard County where the first part of your adventure awaits on the St. Johns River. Here, on the longest river in Florida, your airboat captain will showcase the natural splendours of Central Florida with an unforgettable ride on one of these unique, flat-bottomed craft that are powered by a giant propeller. Skimming along the river and its surrounding wetlands at up to 45mph, you will catch glimpses of alligators, turtles and other wildlife that make the river their home, including the state’s abundance of birdlife, from egrets and herons to eagles and ospreys.

After your nature experience, it’s time to head to the home of One Small Step For Man and complete immersion in the world of NASA and its astronauts. You will have the rest of the day to explore the Visitor Center and soak up the vast array of exhibits and presentations that provide the full lowdown on the past, present and future of the space program as it gears up for a return to the moon and on to Mars. Enjoy the signature KSC Bus Tour that provides a complete overview of the full extent of the vast spread of operations, including the massive Vehicle Assembly Building, Launch Complex 39B, and the Apollo/Saturn V Center, with its recreated moon landing and awesome full-size Saturn V rocket. After, make a beeline for the hugely impressive Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, with its moving and emotional presentation of one of the four surviving orbiters, as well as take a ride on the riveting Shuttle Launch Experience, a clever simulator with the inside track on what it feels like to blast off from the Space Center.
