Kennedy Space Center and Everglades Airboat Safari from Orlando

Kennedy Space Center, Florida

After an Orlando hotel pickup and 45-minute drive south, experience a thrilling, 30-minute airboat tour through the grassy marsh of the St. Johns River and Lake Poinsett, at speeds up to 45 miles per hour. Visit a natural cypress swamp and look for local wildlife like alligators — the Everglades’ most formidable inhabitants — plus eagles and hundreds of species of wading birds.

Then take a 20-minute ride to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for more than six hours of exploring. Enjoy a guided tour of NASA's Launch Complex 39 rocket launch site; the Shuttle Launch Experience, which is what veteran NASA astronauts call the next best thing to an actual space shuttle launch; two IMAX films — IMAX® A Beautiful Planet and Journey To Space 3D, plus a number of other shows and exhibits, including a chance to meet an astronaut at the Astronaut Encounter. There is also the breathtaking Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit, showcasing the historic spacecraft that tells the story of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program.

Finally, visit the LC-39 Observation Gantry and the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Listen to the thunderous sounds of a Saturn V moon rocket liftoff and watch Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon.

The day concludes with a return trip to Orlando.

When you have a day to spare if visiting Orlando, I recommend getting away from the theme parks and and visit some real history.

The airboat ride was excellent and out pilot was a real character. Even though it was cool, he managed to find us some alligators.

Then KSC. Been there before but always worth the visit. See where the Apollo and Shuttle missions were launched. Stand in the Rocket Garden, stand under a mighty Saturn V rocket, marvel at the Space Shuttle Atlantis, touch a moon rock and meet an astronaut.

Everything ran smoothly with the driver, timing, pick-up and drop-off. So could not ask for more. A great day out to a fantastic area and living museum.

Outstanding day. Well looked after by the tour guide and the staff at the Space Center. Well organized with lots to do and learn, in spite of bad weather. Thunderstorms, which were typical for time of year, led to cancellation of Everglades trip.

The trip was very well organized. The Airboat ride Safari was very nice and the Captain of the boat was able to show us a couple of alligators. The highlight of the tour is the Kennedy Space centre which is a must do on a trip to Florida. The guide Tom who claimed it was his first independent trip as a guide did an excellent job.
