"Great Fun!"
July, 2016
We did an evening tour with Boggy Creek Airboats and saw about half a dozen alligators. All were under 3 ft in size but right up close to the boat. The only down about this tour were the thousands of bugs flying at your eyes mouth and nose with the boat light shining. Our young people enjoyed the speed of the boat as well.

"So much fun a nice break from the crowded theme parks!"

This was a pleasant surprise. We were tired of the theme parks and wanted to something more low key. We did the 30 minute ride for $27.50 each. The boats seats roughly around 20 or less. There were young children on the boat and larger adults so seating might vary. No seatbelt needed and you don’t get soaked but could get damp on an outside seat. We saw a raccoon, lots of alligators, a variety of birds and other creatures. Our captain had fun with us and did a few 360’s in the boat but again, no seatbelts were needed and we felt very safe. Highly recommend for young children and seniors.

Our family of 6 (4 kids ages 10 to 17) did an hour Airboat rode here. Our guide, Chris was the best and was very informative during the your and was able to answer all the questions. Since it was Feb we saw a lot of gators and they didn't swim away like they would in the summer because of the cooler water temps. It was a fun ride. They have a small gift shop that my only complaint is the cashier is also the cashier for the restaurant and you order and pay there so it was a several minute wait because the 4 ppl in front of me were ordering food. I understand though that at times it's not busy and probably doesn't pay them to have more staff. My daughter fed the alligators they have in an enclosure there and she really enjoyed it.

What a great evening! The airboat guide was super friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area. He knew where to spot gators, birds, and even a cow. He kept an eye out for wildlife and would slow down or stop to give us time to enjoy the experience. And the sunset was absolutely amazing!

Booked 1/2 hour boat ride, the guide was very informative and knowable, saw like a dozen alligators, a few turtles and bird life, the engine is noisy but they provide hearing protection, cute park in the waiting area, the only negative I can think of is that they don't take reservations for 1/2 hour tours so you may need to wait for a boat. PS look for coupons for the tours they are all over the place
