As you ride, keep your eyes peeled for resident alligators, turtles, and birds lounging in the waterways. If it’s local critters you want, book a morning tour during the warmer months and an afternoon tour in the colder months.

While there, check out the Native American Experience which includes genuine artifacts and hand-made creations of Native Americans in the daily workings of the Native American Village and see demonstrations on cooking, toolmaking, weapons and much more!

Check out the Gem Mining Station and purchase a range of bags and buckets filled with treasures that are native to Florida and take to the mining station. While mining, discover various gems, alligator teeth, shark teeth, rocks, and other treasures.

Before or after your tour, dine with an unforgettable lake view at Boggy Bottom BBQ, serving old Florida recipes, gator tail and more.

Great experience for those not familiar with marshlands of Florida Was a bit worried about how we might be disturbing habitat or bird nests in marshes Saw birds in flight It’s a fast boat ride and my teens enjoyed the different experience
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
We appreciate that you took the time to send an evaluation of Boggy Creek.  We welcome all comments and consider and discuss any suggestions we receive. We understand that you were concerned about the disruption of wildlife habitat, but our boats are considered one of the most eco friendly ways to travel by water.  The habitats usually take only a few minutes to return to their natural state since we go on top of most of it rather than through it as other types of boats do. Overall, we are glad you enjoyed the experience and the educational aspects. We hope you will return soon

Seeing one alligator. And a bird. And a redneck. And a lot of cash go bye bye. Long drive for not much fun.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience or dissatisfaction you may have experienced. Unfortunately, we give customers the experience of seeing true Florida wildlife and are unable to guarantee any specific type of animal (since they are wild). We apologize if this was not made more clear to you initially and thank you for bringing it to our attention so that we can work to improve this aspect of our service. For passengers hoping to see specific wildlife we recommend calling ahead to find out what time of day they are most prominent. If you were looking for an alligator specifically we do guarantee them, but only on our night tour.
