Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose a convenient start time for your tour and meet your airboat at the embarkation point in Southport Park, Kississime—just south of Orlando.

Upon arrival at the airboat launch site, board a 17-passenger boat and hold on tight as you take off into the Central Florida Everglades. Enjoy close proximity to the water surface as you coast through tall grasses and cypress trees, reaching speeds of up to 45 mph (72 kph)! 

As you ride, keep your eyes peeled for resident alligators, turtles, and birds lounging in the waterways. If it’s local critters you want, book a morning tour during the warmer months and an afternoon tour in the colder months.

While there, check out the Native American Experience which includes genuine artifacts and hand-made creations of Native Americans in the daily workings of the Native American Village and see demonstrations on cooking, toolmaking, weapons and much more!

Check out the Gem Mining Station and purchase a range of bags and buckets filled with treasures that are native to Florida and take to the mining station. While mining, discover various gems, alligator teeth, shark teeth, rocks, and other treasures.

Before or after your tour, dine with an unforgettable lake view at Boggy Bottom BBQ, serving old Florida recipes, gator tail and more.

Touch of the wild life

Something different is an airboat ride, worth the money. We had 12 tickets for a 30-minute ride. We had to forget one day due to rain, go in on another day. Which we did not have to (re-scheduled) because 30-minute rides are not scheduled. Bring your iPhone to come early & see some gators. Disney/Universal have rides & a big price. This is a good price in the 30.00 range each. Something you will always remember.

There were 6 in our party. 1 solider wasn't happy but 5 of us loved it. We saw alligators protecting their nest, swimming and sun bathing. The driver was nice and informative.

Although our ride was delayed because of weather, we eventually went on our ride. Our operator Silas made sure the young kids all had on life jackets and that we all had our headphones on. We saw several gators and other wild life (several species of fowl, deer, and cows). Pointing out the gators was exciting and we all enjoyed the ride.

Well worth the time and money. Very friendly group of people. Our Captain (Conner) was fantastic! My wife gets nervous on boats and Conner gave us a very relaxing, safe and insightful tour while providing information about the wildlife on and around the lake.
