Boggy Creek Airboat Tour

Boggy Creek Airboat Tour

Will you be finding yourself near Kissimmee, Florida in the future? Will you be looking for something fun to do that doesn’t  take up a bunch of time and is away from the hussle and bussle of the tourist rush? If your answer is yes then I would suggest that you look into getting the Go Orlando Go pass and take advantage of the 30-minute Boggy Creek Airboat tour at the Southport location.

It was a rainy day when we went so we weren’t sure how it would go. But we were hopeful and it was a nice change from all the hustle and commotion of the parks. It was a ways out to get to the location but it was a beautiful drive. We were lucky enough that it stopped raining when we got there and we made it in time for the first tour!

Check in was a breeze they just scanned our passes and we walked over to the loading dock. No waiting it was amazing!! Before we loaded they went over safety and warnings. Then, once we were boarding the boat they provided us with earmuffs. The kids got a kick out of having to wear them. Once, the fan started up it was loud but feeling the wind in our hair was amazing. I have to admit I was a little nervous going on airboat to see alligators but once we were on it we felt very safe. The ride it’s self was very smooth and we got to see a lot. The kids really enjoyed it because we got to go nice and fast in the open waters.

It helped to know in advance that we weren’t likely to see any gators since it was so cold and that the gators would be hiding in shallow water among the grass.We saw a ton of marsh birds which was nice but the highlight was that we got to see a gator swimming around from a distance.

       

At the end of our air boat tour we enjoyed walking around and seeing the young crocodiles. Although this was interesting really the main attraction was the Native American area.Normally, 2 local Native Americans entertain you with history of how natives lived in the area. However, on the day we went there was only one. But let me be the first to tell you it was very interesting and entertaining!!!  Now I am a mom who is always looking for ways to make our trips educational. Let me tell you the local Native American was very knowledgeable. It was very interesting learning  about their way of life. He  was a very effective and interesting speaker who was also a lot of fun. I recommend seeing this absolutely!

Overall this was fun and educational event. It’s easy to find, interactive, and clean. If you have time stay awhile like we did and enjoy the beautiful park. They also have a cafe but it was closed while we were there.

Keep on exploring all that nature has to offer,

  15. Looks like it was quite an adventure you had with the family. That is so cool you got to get up close and personal with the gator. My daughter did that at a library once and it honestly freaked me out. Although I did eat fire once so I suppose I cannot complain too much. I will have to check this place out should I be in the area.
