Full description
Discover Shingle Creek in Central Florida on a 1.5-hour airboat tour into the headwaters of the Florida Everglades. Travel back in time to the days before urban development and the theme parks of Orlando encroached on the Florida swamps. Go to the site where the largest living estuary in the world starts from a little creek, and capture the splendor of nature on your camera. Hear stories about the Native Americans and early settlers who carved their trails into the swamps. Travel by state-of-the-art, 8-12 passenger stadium seating boat for unobstructed views of the diverse wildlife and plant life. Venture into a natural, living environment of lush vegetation, and glide through swamp marsh and wet prairie land. Venture into the thick vegetation, looking for endangered American Bald Eagles, all sizes of American Alligator, and the many other species of wildlife that inhabit the largest sub-tropical eco-system in the continental United States.

    My daughter and I took a 90-minute airboat tour with Captain Blake. He was knowledgeable about the lake and wildlife - we got to see alligators, a variety of birds, and even a water moccasin. The ride was smooth and enjoyable! We would absolutely do it again, but for longer!

    We had the pleasure of having Wade as our guide. A fantastic guide who answered all of our questions and was able to show us some fantastic sights. We were lucky enough to see bald headed eagles, alligators and baby alligators and, of course the many other birds that inhabit the area. Our first ever air boat ride was a real thrill and we all loved every single minute of it. Thank you so much for making this trip a memorable one. The Young family, UK.
