Our guide to Airboat Ride with Transportation from Orlando

Departing from select locations in Orlando, this tour will whisk you to a nearby wetlands area where you will enjoy an exciting airboat ride in search of local wildlife. The pristine Central Florida Everglades have barely changed from when the early pioneers arrived and are home to eagles, turkeys, wild boar, roseate spoonbills, alligators, and other native creatures.

After boarding your airboat, disappear into endless beautiful swamps, marshes, and rivers, travelling at speeds up to 45mph. Nothing is more thrilling than feeling like you are gliding on water and your experienced captain has a knack for being able to pick out alligators, eagles, and other wildlife that build their homes in the waterways. The knowledgeable guides will share fascinating insights about the ecosystem and the diverse species that call it home, making this not just a ride but an educational adventure as well. Whether you're a nature enthusiast, a thrill-seeker, or simply looking for a unique way to explore Florida's natural beauty, this Airboat Ride is sure to be a highlight of your trip.

    Excellent! We one at Boggy Creek once before courtesy of ATD so, this time booked an hour one at Wild Florida. Lovely day, got picked up and dropped off at our hotel by Donald the bus driver. Did our airboat ride and then had a wander around their animal and alligator area before enjoying some lovely food in an air-conditioned surrounding. Would definitely do this again and probably with Wild Florida, very relaxing day...

    Thoroughly enjoyed this airboat ride, as we didn't have a car on this trip, we decided to go on the airboat with transport, the minibus picked us up on time, with a very friendly driver. we were then taken to boogy creek, which took around 45 minutes. we were given a time the airboat would take us, we had an hours gap, so went around the nature reserve whilst we waited. the nature reserve was included in our ticket. it had alligators, panthers, a sloth etc. when it came to getting on the airboat we were taken in groups, the ranger explained everything clearly and was very informative, our only regret was that we didn't have longer. it was fantastic, wind in your hair, sunshine on your face and great fun. we shall be defiantly doing it again, great value for money.
