You may recall that back in June I shared a post about my visit to Kissimmee, Florida. I traveled there for my friend Jen at The Mom Reviews, for the reveal of the winner of the Kissimmee Decade Of Memories Contest. While in Kissimmee, we did a lot of fun things, some of which I’ll be sharing with you. One of the most memorable things was riding an airboat, at Boggy Creek Airboat Rides.

When you arrive at Boggy Creek Airboat Rides, you first check in. This is where you get an idea of what the gator forecast for the day is.

It’s also where you’ll get a bit of an idea of how big a gator is.

Once on board your boat, you’ll be asked to wear a protective headset. Airboats are very loud!

While out on the 30 minute airboat ride, your guide takes you through the Everglades. Our guide really got the boat moving at times, kicking up quite a spray at about 45 mph. He also stopped on a number of occasions to show us different things including baby and adult alligators and different species of birds. We even saw a cow and a couple of cats! Wild, huh!

Here’s a brief video I took while out on the airboat.

After the airboat ride, we went to another part of the grounds, where we got to get up close and personal with a baby gator. He was really cute! He didn’t feel nearly as dry or scaly as I expected him to feel.

  1. This looks like so much fun! I have been hearing many people talk about airboat rides. I didn’t really know what one was until I read your post. How neat. I’ll have to check into these on our next vacation. Thanks for sharing!

  2. How cool! We recently went to the zoo and the alligators were far away and hard to see so my 3 ear old nephew couldn’t spot them. It would be so cool to be out on the lake with them!

  3. It looks like a lot of fun! I’m not sure if I would be brave enough to hold one of those gators, even though it was a little one. But I would like to take the kids on this adventure – I bet they would love it!
