What You Can Expect

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.

We enjoyed the Everglades airboat Safari but do to lots of rain the water was high and we didn't see as much as we would have liked, lots of birds not many alligators, this was not the tours fault but good old mother nature and rain.
The Kennedy Space Center was great, the bus tour was ok if you are a history buff but I would make sure I did all the rest of the stuff before doing that. We had our 9 year old grandson with us and he was a bit bored but loved the simulator etc. We did several of Viators tours and he enjoyed all of them but this was his least favorite. My husband loved all of it. We ran out of time for some of the movies that we would have loved to have seen. Pace yourself so you get to see the important areas that you want.

This was a fantastic trip! From the fun airboat ride with lots of birds and gator viewing to the mesmerizing Kennedy Space Center lots of gator viewing, here, too! It was a great way to start our busy theme park trip. Our Dolphin Tour Co guide, Madeline, was so eager to share her wealth of knowledge about Orlando's history, flora and fauna. Kennedy Space Center is a must see for everyone. They have created an interactive experience mixed with media and live presentations that opens the world of space travel up for people of all ages. Be prepared for about an hour bus/van ride from/to Orlando.

Excellent tour with Jason our driver who were just so friendly, helpful and informative, even lending me his warm jacket to wear on the Everglades Airboat trip which I really appreciated as it was such a very cold morning that day and I do recommend that you take a jacket with you on this tour, but my husband and I did thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Everglades and we even managed to spot a few small alligators basking on some rocks close to the waters edge with various species of large wading birds hovering overhead which were just awesome to see and you could not wish for a more friendly crew and then onto the tour at Kennedy Space Centre which is not to be missed by anyone and was truly out of this world to see! excuse the pun and Highly Recommend both these tours.

Really enjoyed my experience. The tour out was good. I am glad I took the opportunity to do an airboat ride and even saw alligators. Kennedy was incredible. I've always dreamed of visiting and it was everything I'd hoped. I spent all my time at the Apollo/Saturn V centre and the Atlantis exhibit.

This was an amazing day out. We enjoyed the Everglades, an hour ride was enough for us. The visit to Kennedy Space Center was fantastic and informative. When you're on the bus tour sit on the right side as the view of the space craft and hangers are better. I really only went for my kids, but it was my favourite thing out of the one month visit to the states. Really recommend. We got to met an astronaut and had photos, autographs and was able to ask questions.
