Took the kids to boggy creek. They were a little scared at first but we managed to convince them into going on the trip. So glad we did. It was exciting, fast when we flew through the creek. Saw alligators. It was full of wild life. We never booked and there was no problem just turning up. Quite a reasonable... More

This location is nice that it has walkups available instead of requiring a reservation. Also does reservations for longer tours. You may get lucky and see alligators. Lots of birds, and just a fun time. Afterwards there is a small alligator for photo ops and learning. I would recommend trying at least once for the experience.

Fun! Get the swamp tour with the small boat so you get into places the bigger boat can't. And go ahead and hold the alligator after the ride.

9 of us went on the boat trip on a sunny November morning- no need to book just turn up! Got a glimpse of a gator but plenty of other wildlife to admire, and the little ones loved the turtles and the baby gator. Want to try and fit another trip in before we leave!

The price was ok for a 1/2 hour tour but it wasn't what we had expected. We thought we would be in more of a grassy area going through places that were high vegetation but instead the tour was along the shores of a very large lake. Glad I can check it off the list but not what we expected.... More

We found this airboat ride most enjoyable. It was also good to have the earmuffs on to block out the noise from the motor. We saw many Alligators although quite small. There is also a lot of bird life in the area.The driver was happy to answer any questions. It would have been good if the company could supply headphones... More

This was a great treat for the family. Our family of eight booked a one hour trip on one of the larger airboats. The customer service was impeccable from the moment we arrived. Captain Brandon, at least I think that was his name, was charming and knowledgeable on all aspects of wildlife and the history and climate of the area.... More

This is the best thing I did in Orlando outside of Golf. Great ride throughout the swamp. Saw an alligator family and lots of wildlife. Loud ride - must wear ear protection .. provided. Fun and affordable.

We recently booked a trip to Florida and had booked an Air Boat ride at Boggy Creek which also tied into a family members birthday. I just wanted to say that the ride across the lake was fantastic and the driver gave us plenty of opportunities to take photos of Alligators and Turtles. The driver also had a great knowledge...

Admittedly we went out in the mid aftenoon when there wasn't a lot of wildelife to see but the pilot never really engaged with the passengers . Two years earlier I went out with Wild Willy and that was more fun. There are lots of these airboat rides on the Florida lakes. I suspect some are good and some not... More
