Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures
 
Their wonderful adventure began 24 years ago at a little known fish camp on Lake Tohopekaliga called East Lake Fish Camp. Airboating on the lake was a way of having fun on the weekends with family and friends. The campers visiting the Fish Camp would see how much fun they were having riding their personal airboat and ask them for rides. It didn’t take long for them to see how much they loved nature as much as they did. They asked their wonderful family to lend them the money to purchase their first airboat and they were crazy enough to do it. They started with one six-passenger airboat in 1994. 

In the beginning they worked 7 days a week, 16 hours a day – including the holidays, without a day off for over two years. They lived walking distance from the Fish Camp, which made it easier, and they would regularly bring home airboat visitors for dinner. There were days in the beginning that they didn’t have any customers and weren’t sure they would make it. Packing meals and eating at the boat dock was common just to have some quality time with the family. The children grew up helping behind the desk, doing homework or spent hours fishing off the dock and collecting frogs and minnows to pass away the time.

It took years of talking to journalists, travel agents and tourists to open up awareness that the headwaters to the Florida Everglades actually start in Orlando. They finally were able to convince visitors to give them a chance to experience the “Real Florida” at Boggy Creek Airboat Rides.

In 2016 they became more than an airboat tour and changed thie name to Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures. They made quite a few additions to the park such as a Native American Village, Gem Stone and Fossil Mine, Alligator Oasis, covered pavilions, tiki bar, swamp photo shack and a great restaurant – Boggy Bottom BBQ.

The hard work and dedication paid off and Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures has become a “must-see” attraction for travelers from around the world. Their fleet of 12 airboats has taken several million nature lovers into the beautiful wetlands of Kissimmee. They know there are many new airboat companies that have started in the Orlando area and realize you have many choices. However you will find no other company that has the knowledge, safety record and experience in airboat tours like Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures. They couldn’t have done this without family and friends supporting them along the way, especially their dedicated and hardworking employees that are like family to us.

 If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere. Vincent Van Gogh
