Swamp cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding alligators equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise in comfort with today’s Groupon for an airboat tour from Boggy Creek Airboat Rides in Kissimmee. Choose between two tour options:
- For $25, you get a one-hour night airboat tour (a $53 value).

Boggy Creek’s expert swamponauts ably escort guests through the Everglades with a fleet of USCG-certified airboats. During a one-hour tour, nature-seekers can explore tall grasses and murky waters while it’s still light outside. Or, choose to embark on a night tour and keep one eye on the darkened marsh while the other eye searches for the telltale red gleams that indicate a gator is aiming a laser pointer at you. The night tour launches from the south side of Lake Tohopekaliga, and the daytime tour shoves off from the northern parts of East Lake Tohopekaliga. Click here for more information.

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. Seven 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
