It’s an absolute bucket list item with any Florida vacation. You may not want them to surprise you, but you haven’t visited Florida if you haven’t seen at least one alligator. The guys at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures are ready to take you into the world of gators on an airboat trip through the Florida Everglades.
There are tons of things to do on their campus. From a gem mining station to a baby alligator pond, there is way more than just airboats at this fun stop!
This airboat experience is the closest to Orlando so ditch the theme parks for a day and head over to experience the beauty that is the Florida Everglades. Boggy Creek is open 365 days a year from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Tours depart every half hour.
The Big Mountain Family is raring to go each day and welcome visitors to their Native American village. The family shows visitors daily the ways of the tribe with daily demonstrations of hunting equipment, cooking techniques, and much more. A visit to this area of the park is included in your admission.
The Gator Pond is a great way to get up close to baby alligators without having to set out on a boat. While you engage with these animals, guides are available to speak and answer all your gator questions.
Maybe you are looking for some thrills? Boggy Creek offers a nighttime tour that is perfect for the thrill seekers in the family. You’ll be guided by only a mining hat that the captain of the airboat wears as you look for alligators through the Everglade waters. You’ll hear the sounds of animals but not know where they are coming from. Are you brave enough? Nighttime tours are available every day of the year but book early as they do fill up!
Looking for a little romance or great spot for photos? The sunset airboat tour is great for both. Take a one hour tour aboard an airboat to get the perfect sunset photo. You’ll be whisked around on the boat as you chase the sunset that only Florida can provide. Cameras and photo equipment can be brought on at your own risk, so choose carefully!
A basic 30 minute airboat ride is also a great way to experience the Everglades. The staff at Boggy Creek have noted that the best time to see the alligators that call these waters home is before 10 AM during hot weather and later at night in the cold months. Those who take an airboat ride are asked to dress warmly as the temperature on the water can get cold, even in warm months.
If you are heading out on an airboat tour, guests are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their boat launch to prepare. Tours operate every half hour and promise to provide a fun and exciting adventure throughout one of the most protected wetlands in the United States.
