Nothing says the real Florida like an authentic airboat ride. Idle along canals and get an in-depth look at foliage, exotic birds, turtles and alligators as you glide through more than 100,000 acres of beautiful wetlands.
See for yourself how good it feels to be one with nature and discover what Florida looked like 1,000 years ago. Then soar atop the water at speeds reaching 45mph.You’ll feel like you’re flying through the swamp as you enjoy the best of the Everglades. Keep your hands and feet inside the boat, because you never know when you’ll meet up with the real Florida Gators.

The airboat was a lot of fun and saw big smiles on both my kids faces. We saw a number of life including crocodile which coming from California the only time we see them are in a zoo. My recommendation though when you visit would be sunscreen and a hat with a drawstring due to gets a bit windy.

Definitely worth going, especially in January when you get to see alligators coming out of water to get some sun.

Our family,6 of us, have for the second time gone to Vistana Villages for Christmas and had a wonderful time. This past Dec. we went on the Boggy Creek Airboat ride. We went on the 1 hour excursion and were fortunate to have a great ride with multiple alligator, bird , turtle and otter sightings!! The price was right as well. It was 42 dollars per adult which made it quite affordable. After the trip we watched a Bald Eagle from the parking lot. Exciting! A great excursion and not too far away.

You will be amazed how easily a big boat like these appear to float across the water. The drivers know where to go.
