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.

This was an airboat ride. If you expect to see alligators you’ll be dissatisfied. The boat went out to a specific spot where they knew one small alligator was then headed right back to start point.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience or dissatisfaction you may have experienced. Unfortunately, we give customers the experience of seeing true Florida wildlife and are unable to guarantee any specific type of animal (since they are wild). We apologize if this was not made more clear to you initially and thank you for bringing it to our attention so that we can work to improve this aspect of our service. For passengers hoping to see specific wildlife we recommend calling ahead to find out what time of day they are most prominent. If you were looking for an alligator specifically we do guarantee them, but only on our night tour. We apologize for your dissatisfaction and hope you give us another opportunity to provide the experience you were looking for in the future. Thank you.

All the experience was well worth it. Staff was pleasant and explained everything clearly to us people with hearing disabilities and visual impairment. I was so well surprised that they offer blankets to people to cover themselves if the weather is chilly. 30 min was enough to me and my teenage boys to experience airboat capabilities. Highly recommend it.
