What You Can Expect

Florida Everglades Swamp Tour and Airboat Ride from Orlando

Florida Everglades Swamp Excursion and Airboat Ride

Choose a start time for your airboat adventure and head to Southport Park, Kississime — just south of Orlando. There, take your seat in the 6-person airboat and set off on a 45-minute tour through the Central Florida Everglades. Listen to lively onboard commentary from your guide—a US Coast Guard captain—as you head into the wild wetlands.

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)! Spot alligators, turtles and birds lounging in the waterways, and savor the moments of calm when the boat slows to snap photos and learn more about the local critters.

Pass Lake Tohopekaliga—the source of the Florida Everglades–as you head back to the launch site, where your trip concludes.

It was great - but go early for a good chance of seeing alligators when it's hot. Guide was excellent.

There were only 6 passengers on the trip. Our guide was very knowledgable about all the wildlife. We were lucky enough to see several alligators, two water snakes, an American Bald Eagle and various rare birds. All were seen close up.
A value for money trip.

Awsome. We saw all kinds of wildlife, but the 8 foot alligator in the water was the best. The staff at Boggy Creek was friendly and accommodating. This is definately a must do on your vacation.
