Owner description: Located on the beautiful Kissimmee River in Lake Wales Fl. We take you on a airboat adventure thru the vast swamps and marshes of the Kissimmee River and Dead River. We go where only a 6 passanger airboat would dare go. Come visit and see for yourself the true Florida. Our USCG Licensed Master Captains are NATIVE FLORIDIANS, who were born and raised in the swamp! We know all the good spots to visit, to see all wildlife. The headwaters of the Everglades have to offer! Call for your reservation today.

To see some of the most beautiful areas of Fl take a tour with Captain Carl. We have been on several tours and learn something new on each trip. There is more to FL than the beaches T-Shirt shops.
We will be back for another tour!!!!!!

If you have tried the rest you owe it to yourself to do the BEST. Captain Carl is a wealth of information about Florida and the swamp. We have been 5 times now and it is something we always take our guest from back home to. The comments are always the same. What a great experience.

Our first airboat ride and it was AWESOME. Captain Carl, a native born Floridian, took us away from civilization and into the natural world of birds, gators, otters, snails, cypress trees, flowering aquatic plants and even pineapples. The ride was so smooth it felt as if we were floating on air. Highly recommended.

We left Pennsylvania on a visit to my husband's mother and step-father in Florida. We told them that we were looking into an air boat ride. We decided to do a different FL visit and avoid the parks. We told them that we were only going to book the trip when we arrived and they could go with us. My husband's step-father began a search of his own and discovered Mild to Wild Air Boat Tours. When he found out that the trip would be in the headwaters of the Everglades and away from civilization - he booked it! Upon arrival we met Captain Carl, were suited up with earphones and life vests, received our instructions and after a group picture - off we went on a 6-seater air boat. Captain Carl grew up in the area and knows his way around the swamps. He showed us baby alligators and larger (9-foot to11-foot) gators. We learned about the various types of cypress trees, the cattle that run on the ridges and saw many bird species. There were many photo opportunites. The air boat itself was impressive and better than a ride at the parks. If you are a lover of nature, as well as want a classic air boat ride then this is the place for you!! We recommend it highly. Everyone was friendly and made sure we would be as comfortable as possible on our adventure. If you did not have a light jacket they provided a windbreaker. The 2-hour trip was exciting.

My sister was visiting from Alabama and wanted to go on an airboat ride. I had never gone before either so we went on the internet and found Mild to Wild Airboat Tours. Coming from Lakeland, FL it was not that far away. The drive there was pleasant seeing a lot of nature on the way without lots of houses.

On the way home we stopped at a recommended place to eat "Crazy Fish" the food was wonderful and couldn't ask for better service!

I would highly recommend this attraction to anyone...the word is awesome!
