Skimming surfaces at up to 30 miles per hour, the friction-free airboats helmed by Loughman Lake Lodge’s U.S. Coast Guard–certified captains ferry wayfarers on tours tailored to the whims of each group. Heading out along the waters of the St. Johns River, each unpredictable tour may pass by Floridian wildlife including gators, turtles, hawks, bald eagles, and herons. Expert guides seek out favorite beasties, giving guests a chance to meet snaky sweethearts or finally find out if ospreys’ mating calls actually sound like “Deck The Halls”. Although not included in this Groupon, Loughman Lake Lodge’s onsite camping facilities and full-service restaurant offer respite for weary tour-takers.

Loughman Lake Lodge

Airboats launch from Loughman Lake Lodge deep into St. Johns River, skimming atop the swamplands at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. Onboard, adventurous sightseers pay rapt attention to Coast Guard–certified captains and native Floridians as they narrate the boat’s travels within earshot of alligators, turtles, and eagles. Loughman Lake Lodge itself was built in the 1950s and recently restored to its former glory. It now plays host to a waterfront restaurant, where diners can feast on local delicacies including gator tail and Florida catfish while sucking down beers on the outdoor deck. Fully furnished, air-conditioned cabins, RV sites, and tent camping offer myriad sleeping options for guests looking for a break from traffic, noise, and squirrels asking for directions to the nearest acorn buffet. Fishers can hook edible souvenirs at the lodge's prime bait spots, and shoppers can snag more permanent catches while perusing the gift shop.
