Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Florida Airboat Adventure

Gem Mine

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. Learn how the Native Americans thrived in Central Florida with a presentation at the village with demonstrations on cooking, tool making, 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.

Had a great experience. Saw real alligators, bald eagle and a whole bunch of wildlife. First time on airboat and it was a blast.

I did an airboat ride here at sunset and it was nothing short of amazing! Firstly, the set up is great. There were some small gators on display (no touching!) and we were treated to a Native American Indian show - we learned so much from these engaging folks! Then we had the airboat ride - honestly, this ranked in one of my top 10 sunsets ever! We enjoyed it so much we ended up staying here for dinner! The food was really good and even though I was full, I just had to have dessert as well!

The trip was very exciting. It was fun to actually ride on Airboat and interesting to see and learn about Alligators and their environment. Cost was reasonable. My husband and I are in our 50's and we enjoyed trip.. Recommend going in the morning, gators don't like heat. Wear a hat and bring binoculars.
