Would thoroughly recommend visiting here for a morning. Fantastic airboat ride but also informative about wildlife, particularly the alligators. Made a real change from the parks and only 30-40mins away from Davenport where we are staying.
Meet your tour and boat captain at your chosen start time at the embarkation point in Kissimmee. Board the 17-passenger boat and hold on tight as you take off into the Everglades.
Reach speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph) as you coast through tall grass and cypress trees. Be on the lookout for alligators, turtles, and birds lounging in the waterways. Local wildlife is often spotted in the morning during the warmer months and the afternoon in the colder months.
Upon returning from your tour, check out the boat company’s Native American Experience exhibit which has local artifacts and demonstrations on cooking, tool making, and weapons. You can also refuel at adjacent Boggy Bottom BBQ (own expense).
The tour ends at the departure location.
Take a tour of Florida’s wetlands on a thrilling, 30- or 60-minute family-friendly airboat ride around the Everglades. Cruise through mossy, cypress swamps south of Orlando at speeds up to 45 mph. Keep a lookout for gators and other wildlife often spotted in the area.
