Yesterday our party of three went on the two hour airboat ride with Capt. Chris. Marsh Landing Adventures is about 35 minutes from Kissimmee in St. Cloud. We checked in for our tour and then drove a mile to the dock and boarded the airboat. There were 5 of us on this two-hour tour. Capt Chris pointed out all the points of interest--we saw bald eagles, several large alligators and lots of small alligators, snakes lots of birds and other wildlife. Riding in the airboat was fun, it can skim the water at 35-40 miles an hour and turn very quickly. Capt. Chris knew all the places where the alligators, hawks and other wildlife sun themselves and even named the larger alligators. While the trip was scheduled for 2 hours, he asked us if we wanted to see the Cypress trees on Shingle creek and we did so he extended the tour. We learned so much about the lake and swamp ecosystem that we did not know before including that these waters formed the headwaters for the Everglades.
My only tip is that if you visit in the winter be sure to dress warmly as there can be be quite a wind chill as the airboat speeds along.
