My daughter and I wanted to do something different than just the parks. So we decided to go look at the alligators. We did the one hour tour and had a great time. Tyler, the captain, was great and we had fun with him. He showed us some little gators and had some fun with the airboats too.

Had friends down from Penna a couple of weeks ago and took them to Boggy Creek Airboat rides in Southport. What a great experience. They are both nature people and loved the ride. Captain Jon knew all the spots where they were. We saw little gators and big gators. It was about an hour long ride and well worth the... More

What an experience. Dave the skipper was funny, engaging and really accommodating. Found 5 gators of 5-8 ft in 30 minutes and stopped craft as near as could to them. Took us up on a small island where the females can get away from the males and parked up no more than 2 feet from a slumbering giant. Also saw... More

If you are in Orlando and want something different to do, I would recommend this airboat tour. We took the night time ride. It is about 40 minute from international Drive but well worth it. Our ride was 1 hour long and out tour guide was John. He was great and did everything he could to get us to see... More

We did the swamp excursion at the Southport location. Our captain, Patrick, was very knowledgeable and helped point out the wildlife (yes, we saw gators!). We loved the fact it was a smaller boat, so our party of 6 got a private ride around the lake. We sped around, but also got to sit and just watch the birds among... More

Thought this was going to be like a Disney experience, where all wildlife is "staged." It wasn't and loved being on the water. They provide the headphones to block out the loud fan. Our guide was a Biologist and very knowledgeable....and funny. Wasn't too keen on their gators that they keep captive for tricks. Did love the kitschy picture that... More

Myself and my two sons, aged 13 and 20, were staying on I-Drive in Orlando and travelled out to Kissimee we had heard the reviews were that good! Captain Bill, our airboat pilot had a great knowledge of the Everglades as he steered us through the swamps and marshland of the alligator's habitat. He even could name the alligator's by... More

We were able to catch the last ride of the day, which was actually a little later than usual. Our guide was awesome, and funny, too. We were able to see some alligators right at the beginning of the tour, plus many birds, deer, and a pair do beautiful eagles! It was a beautiful evening and the sunset was absolutely... More
