I have been placed in charge of trying to locate and book an air boat ride for over 20 people, will likely need at least two boats. I am doing this for my Boy Scout Troop located in Central Florida. Anyone have experience with any of the operators of these boats and/or who is good in the Central Florida area?

You might try southernairboat dot com. Mainly florida based and a very good group of people on the site.

I used these guys ( http://www.airboatrides.com/ )when I was in Florida. Easy to find on SR50 between Orlando and Cocoa Beach. We got mixed up in an old cyprus forest...flew past the wild horses....saw eagles...and of course alligators, NEVER take off the earmuffs.

My brother is doing Everglades tours in the Everglades (of course!), but they are using swamp buggies. If you are interested let me know and I'll find the link to their site. Probably too far for you though.

My personal friend Capt. Josh does airboat charters. He is great. He takes folks on charters throughout central Florida on different lakes and the St. Johns river. You and your party will have an excellent time. It's not your average zip around the lake airboat ride, it's more of a tour. He's very knowledgeable of the Florida enivorment and will show you some amazing sights. He can take up to 6. I would recommend calling him as he may know other Airboat captains that could tag along for the entire group. http://www.gatorhunter.com/
