Visit the Headwaters to the Everglades, with 6 passenger airboat into marshlands and waters of the Famous Kissimmee Basin.

Be taken back in time to Florida's natural state, with NO HOMES TO VIEW on this trip, just nature as it should be, up close and personal.

I think this adventure is geared more for school age kiddos. My grandkids are 6 and 9 years of age and I know they would love it.
