Owner description: 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.

When he first got at the attraction he was disappointed that his surprise was an airboat tour but after this tour was over all he could say was wow....The... More

Had a great time with Captain Carl. For 5 friends it was a great hour trip. Beautiful view and even saw a few gators! Also, beer at the store is nicely priced. Highly recommend a tour for anyone interested in seeing some of the best parts of Florida.

This is our fourth trip with this company. They work hard to make each ride unique and beautiful. Every time we have guests to our home we go on this trip and no one has ever been dissapointed.

We have been on several Airboat rides on various Florida vacations. We enjoy the experience. We've been on the "group barge" type airboats, and on another smaller airboat. All of our experiences were fun, but this one was the most educational of them all, and it seemed more intimate too. The price was excellent, and getting a full 2-hour ride... More

My Sister, Carolyn, and Brother-in-Law, Gary, who live in FL, always bring their family/friends who are visiting them to Mild to Wild Airboat Nature Tours, and none have ever been disappointed. I was the luckiest one when it comes to alligator sightings. ..Captain John said, "I haven't seen one this big in four years!" Having never seen an alligator this... More
