Experience what it’s like to be thrown into space. It’s almost the real deal, just without the gravitational force.

This half-an-hour long ride on St. Johns River is a major highlight of the guided tour. It takes visitors through the nearby swamps that boast unique flora and fauna – flowers, exotic plants, birds and wildlife.
