- Because of the nature of the airboat ride, pregnant women or people with neck or back problems cannot participate.
- Children must be 48” in height to sit and wear a seat belt.
- Hearing protection is provided by the company.
- Uber and Lyft are easy to come by in the City but are hard to get at the Swamp Dock.
