Itinerary

For your enjoyable and relaxing Cocoa Beach and Airboat Tour, from Orlando, you will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned coach and driven to delightful Cocoa Beach. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

Located on a barrier island between the great Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River, Cocoa Beach has warm Southern waters and a perfect average temperature of 73° F (around 23° C). It's also a paradise for surfers.

Spend a perfect day here kicking back with a book, building sandcastles, looking for seashells, swimming, or strolling along the shoreline. You'll probably see dolphins at play, and could even catch sight of a migrating whale.

If you want to hit the waves, and don't have a board, you can always hire one (payable direct). Keen surfers should also check out the world's largest Ron Jon Surf Shop, where you'll find the latest trends in surf-ware fashion.

When you're hungry, your day out includes lunch at The Shark Pit restaurant. This fun restaurant offers a great range of grills, salads, burgers, pizzas, and seafood, plus scrumptious desserts.

And the enjoyment doesn't stop here, your tour also includes a magical30-minute airboat ride along the St John's River to explore the wonderland of the Florida swamps.

As you glide along, your driver will tell you about this wetland wilderness, with its black cypress trees draped in lichen, and a variety of wildlife. Depending on the day, this could include alligators, herons, egrets, ospreys turtles and snakes.

If you take an hour for lunch and 30 minutes for your airboat tour, you will have about 8 hours 30 minutes to spend on the beach. At the end of a day of sun and fun, you will board your coach and will be dropped back at your hotel.
