Airboat Adventure

30 Years of Nature & Thrills

Spring 2024

This June marks Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures’ 30th Anniversary. Their journey began in 1994 at East Lake Fish Camp. What started as a weekend pastime with family and friends quickly evolved into sharing the adventure of airboating with visitors.

With unwavering support from family, the first airboat was purchased.

They became ambassadors for the real Florida experience. Spreading awareness about Lake Tohopekaliga’s role as the headwaters to the Florida Everglades. Visitors embraced the invitation to escape to nature, to enjoy the wonderous wetlands and abundance of wildlife. Today, at their current location at Southport Park in Kissimmee, FL, the fleet of 12 airboats has whisked countless nature enthusiasts from around the world safely into these breathtaking landscapes.

In 2016, they deepened their guest’s connection to nature through extraordinary additions, such as a Native American Village, a 70 ft. gemstone mining slough, a gator pond, and the most recent addition, an enchanting butterfly garden, Lily’s Butterfly Garden & Loreli’s Critters.

The past 30 years wouldn’t have been possible without the support of their family, friends, dedicated employees and countless guests who supported this remarkable journey. Celebrate with them. Embrace the beauty of nature and create cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
