Located on the beautiful Kissimmee River in Lake Wales Fl. We take you on a airboat adventure thru the vast swamps and marshes of the Kissimmee River and Dead River. We go where only a 6 passanger airboat would dare go. Come visit and see for yourself the true Florida. Our USCG Licensed Master Captains are NATIVE FLORIDIANS, who were born and raised in the swamp! We know all the good spots to visit, to see all wildlife. The headwaters of the Everglades have to offer! Call for your reservation today.

Had a great day on the airboat today. Everyone in the family enjoyed it, the Captian was friendly and informative. The lake and wildlife was amazing. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a natural Florida tour.

In Orlando for a conference, we opted to skip Disney and see some of the real Florida. We weren't disappointed! The airboat was a blast! We saw bald eagles, baby alligators, plus a full size one, blue herons, and deer. Our guide, Captain John Wathey, was a delight. Next time we will bring the kids. It was about an hour's... More

We went with family and a couple that recommended this trip, 7 in all. The couple has been before. It was fun, exciting and educational. The Captain was very knowledgeable and personable. We felt like we were on an outing with a friend, Glad we did it.! It was near a campground and there was a place to get home... More

My husband and I took my mom and step-dad on this tour as a Mother's Day surprise. Neither had ridden an airboat before (I hadn't either!), and it was a wonderful experience. Captain John maneuvered us around expertly, and provided wonderful commentary about the ecosystem, the plants and the wildlife we saw (or could have seen - didn't really see... More

We went with a group of 12 so we had 2 boats out for the sunset tour, Captains John and Worm were more than engaging, very informative and we had some fun swerving in and out...thanks guys! A nice evening and... More

During our stay in Florida, my friends and I decided to take an airboat ride. Based on my previous experience here with Captain John, we booked a return visit. Upon arrival, we learned that Captain Worm would be in charge of our boat today and he did not disappoint! Despite the season and the 90 degree temperatures, Captain Worm was... More

Easily the best day of our two week holiday was the day we had an airboat trip with Capt Worm. We saw plenty of wildlife, including bald eagles, soft shell turtles and of course Alligators. Even though we had a three year old with us, we all felt completely safe and could enjoy the trip to the fullest. Out of... More

Great trip - this one is more off the beaten path so I think it gives more opportunity to see more wildlife.
