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.

What an awesome airboat ride with Capt. Worm! We saw tons of wildlife including eagles, alligators, wild cows, etc. He even dug into the mud and got some big snail shells for the little ones on the boat. We would definitely go back again!

This was an exciting tour led by Captain Worm. We saw gators, swamp cows, eagles, wild turkeys, many cranes and so many birds I lost count. The facilities are rustic but very clean. Beth greets you and sets you up. Two other Captains, Captain Carl and Captain John, are also excellent guides. I want to try the dinner ride and... More

This was an awesome ride around the lake in our first air-boat ride. The guide was able to point out numerous birds, wild cattle as well as 2 alligators along the way. The boat ride was smooth going on all types of material including water, reeds, swamp and various other grasses with no impact on speed. The family and myself... More

It was our first time on an airboat and weren't sure just what to expect, but turned out to be a great experience. Capt. Worm even found us some baby alligators for us to film and pet. Also, along the trail, he pointed out various forms of wildlife, ie, wild turkeys, even wild cows and lots of different bird species... More

Captain John was great. Knew where to take us to see Alligators but also took the time to explain the lake and surroundings. Stopped several times to point out animals and the environment. Would highly recommend using him!

We had a really enjoyable trip! Captain Carl is the best! He is very knowledgeable and friendly and seemed to know where the most likely spots were to find the alligators. This was our third trip with them and we won't go with anyone else in the area!
