Boggy Creek's expert swamponauts ably escort guests through the Everglades with a fleet of U.S. Coast Guard-inspected and certified airboats. During a one-hour tour, up to 17 nature seekers explore the tall grasses and waters of Florida's wetland wilderness, cruising across the surface at speeds of up to 45 mph. USCG-certified captains point out the nearby wildlife, such as ambling alligators sneaking through the brush, blue herons gliding across the sky, or the rare bald eagle barbershop quartet performing a heartfelt version of "Free Bird." After each tour, passengers can watch a live gator handling and are allowed to hold the animal. Tours run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, though advanced reservations are required. All vessels are supplied with life preservers and ear protection is also provided for passengers due to the loud fans used to propel the boats.
Boggy Creek Airboat Rides
In 1994, owners Chris and Margie Long established Boggy Creek Airboat Rides with a single, six-passenger vessel. Recently, their company celebrated its 20th anniversary, and their fleet has grown to more than a dozen boats, and the business has whisked more than one million passengers through Orlando's nearby wetlands. From two locations, Boggy Creek's fan-propelled watercrafts launch into the Florida Everglades, exploring the swampy habitats of gators, turtles, eagles, exotic birds, and exiled Frankensteins. Four different tours offer varied experiences, including a night ride, during which participants observe red-eyed gators prowling for prey. US Coast Guard–certified captains helm every ride, which are safe for explorers of all ages—even infants
