Boggy Creek Airboat Rides

2001 East Southport Road

Margie and Chris Long started Boggy Creek Airboat Rides as the Original airboat company in Central Florida with just one six-passenger airboat in 1994. At that time it was unheard of to stay in the Orlando area and take an airboat ride. The Florida Everglades in south Florida are known worldwide as the location to go out on an airboat tour. It took years of talking to journalists, travel agents and customers to open up the awareness that the headwaters to the Florida Everglades actually start right in Orlando. They were able to finally make visitors realize that with their few precious vacation days Boggy Creek's central location still gives them a chance to see the "Real Florida" only minutes from Orlando's attractions.

Very professional, great park area, lots to do and see beyond the air boat rides. You could spend all day here. Great for all ages. We took our 8 month old on the air boat and he had a life vest and ear muffs and loved it. Our driver was awesome, we saw several gators and his knowledge of the wildlife and environment was awesome. I definitely recommend and will be back.

What an absolutely amazing adventure! I have never done anything like this before in my life and was completely blown away. The boat captains are funny polite outgoing knowledgeable and taught me a lot of interesting facts about the wildlife in Florida. I cannot wait to take another trip definite definite plus for family-friendly venues and Adventures

This was so much fun!! I took my kids and we really enjoyed getting up close and personal with the gators and taking in some of the beautiful Florida wildlife on a gorgeous day. The guides are well informed and funny, and were very happy to answer any questions my kids had. Afterwards, we spent a good amount of time doing the mining activity and checking out some of the artifacts and info posted around the restaurant/ out back area. We'd go back again for sure!

We had a fun operator. Smart, knew his stuff, had a good sense of humor. Drove the air boat like a champ. Stopped and showed us gators, named certain birds and explained why the cows were way out in the water. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. Clean park, sweet people, knowledgeable. Will recommend to anyone who wants to do the air boat tour and see the real sights of Florida.

First time on an airboat and we had a great time. We had to wait for the heavy rain to stop, but well worth the wait. On the tour we were fortunate to see several gators along the way and our captain navigated well. I would recommend this tour if you are in town on vacation. We had to drive a little distance from our resort, so plan your day accordingly depending on your location. We will definitely return for another tour.
