Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose a convenient start time for your tour and meet your airboat at the embarkation point in Southport Park, Kississime—just south of Orlando.

Upon arrival at the airboat launch site, board a 17-passenger boat and hold on tight as you take off into the Central Florida Everglades. Enjoy close proximity to the water surface as you coast through tall grasses and cypress trees, reaching speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)! 

As you ride, keep your eyes peeled for resident alligators, turtles, and birds lounging in the waterways. If it’s local critters you want, book a morning tour during the warmer months and an afternoon tour in the colder months.

While there, check out the Native American Experience which includes genuine artifacts and hand-made creations of Native Americans in the daily workings of the Native American Village and see demonstrations on cooking, toolmaking, weapons and much more!

Check out the Gem Mining Station and purchase a range of bags and buckets filled with treasures that are native to Florida and take to the mining station. While mining, discover various gems, alligator teeth, shark teeth, rocks, and other treasures.

Before or after your tour, dine with an unforgettable lake view at Boggy Bottom BBQ, serving old Florida recipes, gator tail and more.

Fun ride but safety first
Bob
, Sep 2020
Safety first? The experience was comprehensive. There is a place to get a sandwich, some alligators to see and many activities for the kids. The boat captain was friendly and the equipment was in really good shape. So why dangerous? We went out in the pm when storms were in the area, and we got significantly rained on halfway through (the half an hour ride). No problem, the captain blasted back across the lake and we were fine. However, an hour later a weather emergency was announced with 40 mph winds. If we were stuck in that?.,,,, Bottom line, it was a fun trip but check the weather before you leave the dock. Safety first.

Awesome experience all the way around! Captain Wayne put us right on a cpl of Gators within 10-15 mins! We knew we wouldn't see too many due to the time of year so just seeing those was a bonus! The boat ride is not always about seeing the gators but all the other wildlife in general! U wanna see gators go to gator land! If you want to experience how the locals live everyday life in the Everglades then go to Boggy Creek!

Went on Christmas Day 2019 and saw lots of wildlife! It was the first sunny day after several days of rain, so the gators were out sunning themselves and saw several turtles, interesting birds and snakes.

Bit of a drive from the tourist district of Orlando, about US$40-50 with Uber. Worth the trip. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. The time feels like it goes so quickly, recommed the hour ride. What we didn't realise is that you aren't guaranteed a date and time through Viator so important to contact the tour company right away to book your spot.

I was glad we were able to see some alligators and the kids enjoyed doing the other activities while we waited. I think we could have seen alligators out of the water if we waited until a cooler part of the day. We went out at 11:45 AM. The airboat ride was fun and would be something we would do again.
