What To Expect

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.

Very fun! They have a little wildlife park which is a nice way to kill some time before you take the airboat — my family and I had a great time and felt very safe!

Awesome little adventure! Should have done the 1hr ride! Our tour guide Taylor had wonderful customer service skills and was very knowledgeable. The bonus was we were able to see two mama gators protecting their nests.

Great for the whole family
Tamara_C, Aug 2021
This was a whole lot of fun! Our guide was very informative and was able to answer everyone's questions with knowledge and humor. Not only did we see alligators but the water lilies and lotus blooms were beautiful. We did upgrade to the hour tour on a recommendation from a friend that went and liked it so much that he said we would enjoy and hour more - and he was right. My family that went - mom 74, me 55, spouse 59, daughter 21 and we all equally enjoyed it!
