We go every year. Its better than the places down south in the everglades. You will get to see a lot of gators and even hold one in the end. The captain was super nice. He let the kids collect these awesome apple snail shells. It was a great free souvenir. There is a great entertainment and education value at... More

The family LOVED IT! Our guide knew his swamp! He took us right to a mama alligator and her babies! He knew every answer to every question asked! He told us ALL kinds of interesting facts and went out of his way to show us every specie he could! He also had fun driving that boat! It was a great... More

We wanted to see some of the everglades & hopefully spot an alligator or two. This exceeded our expectations. We saw numerous alligators & even some baby ones. The airboat ride was exhilarating. Would definitely recommend doing the 1 hour tour.

We went here cause it was a large group of 7 and it was cheaper and as advertised closer to Orlando than Midway Air boat rides that we visited last year. It was terrible and I would never tell anyone to go. It was just a ride on the river with some tall grass, nothing like everglades, no wildlife, just... More

This was our second visit to Boggy Creek Southport. Captain Branden tried his best to find us a gator but unfortunately the gators were playing hard to get. This didn't spoil the experience though as we did manage to see different species of birds and with the clear water we managed to see the bass.. Next time we plan to... More

We went on the 1 hour evening airbot ride. The directions on the website we excellent and we found it easily despite it being nearly an hour away by car from our hotel. The guide was excellent and we saw about 10 alligators during the tour. We also managed to find hundreds, if not thousands of wading birds that had... More

Boggy Creek has two locations, we chose the Southport location because we wanted to travel a little further away from their East Lake location that is a little closer to Orlando. We went in a group of seven but the boat actually accommodated around twelve. I have to say captain Wayne is a very personable, knowledgeable captain. What we didn't... More

We ran out of time and did not get to the Air Boat ride. However, we were told our e-ticket did not expire so we will use it next visit to Florida.

Easy parking and a restaurant to while away the time if you arrive early like I did. The air-boat ride is safe but exhilarating, darting though the shallow water of the swamps. The captain or driver, I do not know which is more appropriate, was every knowable on all the plant life and birds we came across. I even seen... More

I am so glad that we chose to do this with our children. Our boys loved this tour! Great for all ages! This was the first time on an airboat and it was so much fun! My youngest son even got to hold a baby gator and have his picture made. Great time!! A must see! We will definitely be... More
