Airboats are a fun way to explore the waterways of Georgia and surrounds.
Feel the breeze in your hair and the smell the freshness of the Georgia country air while riding in an open airboat. One of the most unique ways to explore some of Georgia's waterways is by taking an airboat tour. You can explore the winding rivers and Georgian flora and fauna. It is a whole lot of fun and not too expensive.
Airboats are flat-bottom boats also known as fan boats. The propellers that are attached to the back of the boat resemble the propellers of an aircraft. The propeller and engine are protected by a large cage to prevent damage from trees, animals and large logs. Airboats are a popular form of boat used in fishing, hunting and eco-tourism.
