Thanks for coming, Victoria! We're happy to hear you were able to see such a variety of wildlife during your tour! See you again next time!
I have visited Boggy Creek several times, last in 2015. Yesterday I arrived to find the area updated and revamped very nicely. The airboat ride is extensively reviewed elsewhere and I have nothing to add on that, other than very, very good. The surprise was the Native Indian. His presentation was witty, informative and fascinating. He had my boys of 10 and 14 eating out of his hand. The presentation covered his camp, clothing and how sourced, weapons, how Alligators were traditionally killed, Weapons history and demonstrations. Finally, for $5 he would individually coach you and let you use, throwing stick, bow and arrow as well as blowpipe.
I would travel to see this presentation on its own!
Thanks for the awesome review! We are happy to hear how much you enjoyed your experience with Little BigMountain. He is truly a treasure! See you again next time!
Can't recommend this highly enough... fantastic/awesome fun, suitable for all ages - we did both the day and night rides, very different experiences, but equally as great for those chasing thrills! - saw lots of gators in their natural habitat :) - restaurant was new from our previous visit and served very nice food... the resident Native American was excellent, kept all age ranges captivated with his knowledge and quick wit.
Would recommend wrapping up warm (fleece or light coat), as it is colder on the lakes - even when it is otherwise hot - sunglasses will also protect your eyes from bugs!
Thanks for the great feedback, Sven! We truly appreciate your business! Our night tour is my personal favorite! We'll see you again soon...maybe for a sunset tour this time! :)
It's pretty straightforward - an airboat ride on the edges of a lake looking for cool stuff to see. For us, who are boaters (but not airboaters) and had never been on an airboat before, it was great fun. Not sure I would need to do it again, though we did see some cool wildlife.
Thanks for coming to see us, Bill! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your tour with us! Hope to see you again!
We visited in late March 2018. We were a party of 5 and chose the VIP 1 hour airboat ride. Our trip was early morning - ok 9.15am is not early to everyone but it is to my kids aged 13, 8 and 8.
Booking was really efficient via their online service, a confirmation was emailed immediately.
We called 24 hours ahead to book, if you can I would suggest it’s probably better to arrange earlier so you can get the time you want.
Our boat captain was friendly and had lived in area. He was knowledgeable about the wildlife and gave some good personal insights. I was super impressed at the thought to give reassurance to my girls that there might be a lot of flying bugs but they do not bite.
We were lucky and were able to see 3 good sized gators and numerous wild birds. ( you cannot always guarantee wildlife to be there on command).
Following the boat ride it was nice to speak with the naitive Indian who was great with the kids, he event went down to the water to collect some apple snail shells for them to look at and keep.
All in all well worth the price tag for a glimpse of the superb outdoors of Florida and a chance to meet a REAL native human.
Thanks for the excellent feedback! It sounds like you had a blast. We are happy to hear everything went smoothly for you when booking with us. We hope to see you again soon!
We had a great time on our 1hour VIP tour. I highly recommend this a must do when in Kissimmee. Will do the night tour on our next vacation. Captain Fred was great, seen several gators and birds.
Thank you for the great review! We will be sure to let Captain Fred know that you enjoyed your airboat tour with him. Please come back and see us again soon!
