"Night Ride"
June 2021
We did the Sunset ride a few years back and it was amazing. This time we did the night ride and it was so cool. We saw a lot of alligators. Our Captain was very kind and informative - you could tell he really loves what he does and he loves sharing it with others. I would highly recommend Boggy Creek and we will be back!

"EXCELLENT!!!!!"
March 2021
We had a 1 hour private tour with our guide CONNER, he was Amazing we asked a lot of questions about bird, fish, gators, plant life and he gave us incredible history even about the different colors of the baby gators. We saw what looked like a apple in the swamp and Connor gave us the who story and how it may effect the ecosystem. Saw Cows back high in the swamp water and how the gators don't seam to bother them. Thank you Boggy Creek Air Boat Adventure for having a team like Connor that REALLY LOVES what his is doing. It truly was a great experience for our 13 and 16 year Grandkids and for Bill and I. The grounds and restrooms were clean and the restuarant was busy but very quick and friendly on getting our food out witch our food was very good. Thank you again.

August 2019
The ride was fun. The guide was educational. Unfortunately it was hot out, and since alligators are cold blooded, they were under water. We were able to see one.

"Awesome Ride!"
June 2018
We're from Los Angeles and decided that we wanted to do activities that we didnt have back home and what better way to do that with an airboat ride??? My family and I loved that it was like a safari ride on water-seeing alligators with their babies, birds of different kinds, cows, bulls and wonderful scenery of trees and greens. Captain Andy our driver was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. I highly recommend this activity.

How many people will be on the boat?

Each airboat holds a maximum of 17 people. They generally limit the tours to 15 passengers or less, however.

What will I see on an airboat tour?

Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures will take you into the headwaters of the Everglades, which has one of the largest populations of bald eagles in the world. There are also turtles, raccoons, wild hogs, armadillos, deer, and an array of birds. The animals are in the wild, so, they cannot guarantee sightings of gators, birds, etc. The captains are familiar with the area and each tour is unique and may lead to many different discoveries.

What is the difference in tours?

The longer you are out on the airboat the better chance you have seeing more wildlife. The one-hour ride takes you further into the swamps then the half-hour tour and is more personalized. The night tour is the only one they guarantee to see alligators.

When should we arrive?

For each tour that you must select a start time for, you will need to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your tour's departure time. If you are scheduled to arrive around high traffic times in the late afternoon, please leave in plenty of time before your scheduled time. They cannot hold the ride for you but will try to get you on another later one.

Are the airboat tours wheelchair accessible?

Wheelchairs can get all the way to the boat, however, they are not able to have a wheelchair on the boat. Also, there are 3 steps into the boat.

Are service animals permitted?

Yes, service animals are permitted as long as they are on a leash and in control. However, if the captain deems the animal is not in control and could cause a risk for other passengers, then he may refuse boarding on the boat.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing and sunscreen as you will be in the sun for 30 minutes to an hour. Bug repellent is also recommended. Temperatures are cooler on the water, so you may also want to bring along a sweater or jacket. Jackets or sweaters are highly recommended for the night tour.
