Hello guys, I'm Captain John, we run airboat tours here on Lake Garcia. A little history on this area: years ago this was cattle land, farmland prior to that. 1960 all of this you see was bought by Manuel Garcia. Their dream was to raise cattle and export them back to Cuba. 1961 the Cuban Missile Crisis came and the embargoes replaced, Mr. Garcia's dream not reached. However, his passion was race horses. So he built this beautiful racetrack in 1967 completed, people came from all around, myself as well as in the 60s as a small boy, and watched the races. Late 70s the State bought it from the Garcias and built levees around the outside, flooded it, they stocked it with fish, and everything else came on its own accord. And what we have today Lake Garcia, the headwaters to the St. Johns River, one of very few rivers in the US
where the entire river flows north.
Come join us on an exciting tour.

Hello, guys, it's Captain John again. Want to talk a little bit about the Osprey, one of my favorite birds out here. They are a migratory bird but every year we have a few birds that do hang back. We've been told they've been studied, some of our birds go all the way to South America.
Osprey can be found on every continent in the world except Antarctica. The two hotspots is Florida
and the Yucatan Peninsula. But here we have an abundance of Ospreys and they will return usually by the first or second week in December. Ospreys, the adults, will always return to the same nest. They'll use it year after year. We have Osprey nest out here. They've been used by the same parents for 12 to 14 years. When the Osprey is fully grown the females larger. The reason is she does a majority of the incubation, however, the male shares in those duties as well, up to about 35% of the time.
Come join us on an exciting tour.
