Orlando: Boggy Creek Airboat Ride with Options

1. Orlando: Boggy Creek Airboat Ride with Options

The Central Florida Everglades are natural wonders, best explored with locals who know their backwaters. The beautiful landscape and expert guidance of your captain will make this tour a trip that you'll never forget. Guests on the Scenic Nature Tour explore narrow water trails engulfed in the brush of the Central Florida Everglades. On this tour you'll stop periodically, hoping to spot Florida's state reptile, the American Alligator, in its natural setting. Witness rare and endangered birds swooping effortlessly through the skies as the sunshine warms your body and the wind whips through your hair. Other wildlife abounds throughout the trip. This tour is perfect for groups and families looking to explore and learn about the unexpected side of Central Florida. A longer trip on a Detailed Nature Tour of 1-hour increases the number of encounters with Florida's wildlife, especially the American Alligator, which can reach up to 15 feet in length and 1,000 pounds. You'll experience nature right alongside turtles, bald eagles, blue herons, deer, and a wide variety of waterfowl in their natural environment, not in captivity. Be sure to also check out the Gem Mining Station. You will be able to purchase buckets filled with treasures that are native to Florida and take them to the mining station. While mining, you will discover various gems, alligator teeth, shark teeth, rocks, and other treasures. There will be an additional charge for gem mining bags or buckets. A restaurant with indoor or patio seating is available, where you can dine before or after your tour (at your own expense).

It was an experience that we were so glad we booked!! We knew going in that wildlife doesn’t always want to be seen but we were very fortunate that our captain found us two gators not to mention the birds, deer, eagle, turkeys…. But the ride alone would have been great too! We booked an hour tour and it was the perfect amount of time on the water! A very fun and fast speed ride!

We liked: 1) being able to show up without an appointment that was scheduled far in advance. 2) Having things to do while we waited out turn (only about an hour) 3) the guide knew the area, and was able to find many animals to show us. 4) the price was competitive with other companies that did not offer the above advantages.

This activity was one of the best that my family enjoyed while we were on vacation. We would love to do it again.

You might not get to see many gators but if you have the right guide it won’t matter you will still have fun!!

Excellent experience. Chris was a great guide. Highly recommend.
