Can anyone suggest

a airboat/swamp tour? We will be visiting July 6-20, 2013. Have condo reserves @ Legacy Dunes for the entire visit.

Plan on visiting all 4 Disney parks, Universal/IoA, Sea World, beach time, deep sea fishing & Gatorland. We will have our own car so traveling won't be a problem.

DS6 isn't exactly excited about WDW but I know he will be when we get there. He is all about hunting, fishing and loves watching the outdoor shows. I know he will love to do the airboat ride/tour. Any suggestions?

There are some great choices for airboat tours. Here are a few to get you started:

Boggy Creek- http://www.bcairboats.com/

Wild Florida- http://wildfloridairboats.com/

If your son likes outdoor activities, look into Revolution Off Road Experience. They don't have an airboat ride, but they have 4x4, dune buggies, Jeep excursions, and fishing.


I hope this helps!

I would suggest an early morning airboat ride followed by Gatorland and then some shopping at Florida Mall. That's what we did one day and worked out pretty well. That would keep everyone happy!


Hope this helps.

DS would love it in 'Outdoor World' for his type of shopping :-)

Would highly recommended Alligator Cove airboat tours. A friend recommended them to us and we did the tour in October. The guides were very friendly, funny and informative and we saw loads of wildlife. We paid $50 each for a 2 hour trip. They are highly rated on Tripadviset.

visit wildfloridairboats in st.cloud - a hidden gem . you really feel you are in the wilds of florida. We found this place when we got off the beaten track &got lost ! - but it turned out to be one of the highlights of the holiday. The airboat ride was a hoot - plenty of crocs & wildlife about . you can easily spend 2-3 hrs here , my kids loved it. Very informative & very eco-friendly. Go & Enjoy.
