Trip # 2 Airboat Educational Tour (a group tour)
This trip uniquely combines an exhilarating fun and educational adventure for those wanting to experience more than just an ordinary expedition. This trip is not for the faint at heart! Nor is it your everyday theme park ride!
The Airboat Tour is a 4 hour educational tour in the Hawksbill Creek. Your trip is video recorded especially for you and your group as a memorable keepsake.
Transportation is provided for you to the airboat launch site. During this time, you are introduced to the historic Hawksbill creek, where the airboat tour takes place. This body of water while averaging only 3 feet deep has numerous underwater blue holes with depths plunging to 80 feet deep. You will get to view the tidal movements in these blue holes which cause either a pulling in or pushing out of fresh underground water into the salt water above. Journeying through this pristine natural environment is very scenic and tranquil.
Halfway through the ride you can snorkel the in the refreshing waters of the creek above the blue holes. Back on board the boat, we travel further toward the mouth of the Hawksbill creek which opens into a vast body of water called the little Bahama Bank. At this point, the water color transitions to a clear turquoise which allows for easy viewing of turtles, sharks and our world famous bonefish. You will also enjoy encounters with a variety of migratory and local bird species. The airboat excursion is topped off with lunch on a little cay where shelling, trekking, relaxing or swimming (if you dare), are all options. Following this, you will be transported back to the airboat launch site.
Your personal group will be guided by Environmental Biologist and Nature Expert.
