Adventures in Airboat Rides

By: Carrie McLaren


If you’re looking for a family adventure, look no further than an airboat ride.  

I experienced my first airboat ride last year with Boggy Creek Airboats, through the waters of Lake Tohopekaliga in the Kissimmee area.  It was exhilarating to ride through the waters and experience wildlife in such a natural setting. 

Our airboat guide showed us the alligators favorite hiding spots and was a pro at pointing out the creatures to us, as they lay hiding in the swampy waters.  During our trip we even learned about the plants and waterways that surrounded us. 

I expected it to be a bumpy ride and I couldn’t have been more wrong! We glided across the water, quickly and safely.  It was such a great experience and offered a unique view of Florida. It is definitely something I want to do again once my girls get a little older.

Have you ever been on an airboat ride?
