This classic combination tour pairs the essential excitement of the Kennedy Space Center with the thrills of an airboat ride and a chance to enjoy some of the real, natural Florida.  

KSC is surrounded by conservation areas and wildlife refuges, so there is a strong link between the rural nature of airboating and the high-tech world of space exploration.  Your adventure starts with a gentle drive out to Brevard County to the St. Johns River. Here, on the longest river in Florida, your airboat captain will showcase the natural splendors of Central Florida with an unforgettable ride on a unique, flat-bottomed craft that is powered by a giant propeller.  

Skimming along the river and its surrounding wetlands at up to 45 mph, you'll catch glimpses of alligators, turtles and other wildlife that make the river their home, including an abundance of birdlife like egrets, herons, eagles, and ospreys.

After your nature experience, it’s time to head to the home of 'One Small Step For Man' and a complete immersion in the world of NASA and its astronauts.  You'll 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 story of the  past, present and future of the space program as it gears up for a return to the moon, and on to Mars.

Be sure to visit the superb Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit for one of the most emotional tributes to the former earth orbiter, as well as the Shuttle Launch Experience and a host of hands-on opportunities.

About the Space Center

Not only does the Space Center offer the past, present and future of the space program, it puts visitors front and center in the whole experience like never before.  Seeing is believing, and you will believe you have been transported to the cutting edge of space exploration through a series of hands-on exhibits, movies, and presentations, including a daily Astronaut Encounter with one of the modern heroes of NASA’s operations.

At the main Visitor Complex, you should definitely 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.  

You can also visit the Heroes & Legends center (including the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame), soak up the grandeur of the IMAX Theater with its eye-popping large-screen movies, and wander the Rocket Garden.
