    I always hear that boggy creek is good http://www.bcairboats.com/

    When we did it, we went to the Billy Swamp as it was part of an everglades tour programme http://www.seminoletribe.com/safari/index.shtml

    It was really good! could have done with doing a longer airboat ride actually but the huge swamp buggies were even better in some ways.

    Really good :)

    I've been looking into these as well, as the friends we are going with in December would like to do it as well. I've been looking for an old fashioned airboat not the big ones at Boggy Creek when all they really do is go fast.

    The ones I am considering are Old Fashioned Airboat Rides or Central Florida Airboats What I like about these is you can decide how long you want to go out for and we will have a boat to ourselves :D

    I am so looking forward to the airboat ride we have booked for the end of the year although I am a bit dubious in case it makes me get motion sickness!! We are going to be on it for 3 hours :unsure:

    this is what i got back from my uncle about booggy creek airboats


    Yes. They are OK but definitely not the best, They operate on two different locations and we saw no alligators with them. Also quite a short ride, I think about 30mins. Or so.

    Boggy Creek really isn't worth the time, unless you just want the experience of riding an air boat.

    The best, is of course, forever away down on Alligator Alley. There is one out on 528 toward Cocoa Beach, too. :yes:

    The one heading toward Cocoa Beach? No, it's on 528 before you get to the coast, but it's in Brevard county. :yes:
