Our group of 7 being new to Florida had a blast on Captain Ron's airboat ride! He was very knowledgeable of everything. Gave a great ride through the lake. We got to see alligators and eggs and babies. We saw birds and a bald eagle!...More
This airboat tour on picturesque Lake Panasoffkee takes you through pristine marshlands teeming with wildlife and biodiversity. With a local captain at the helm, explore the lake’s spring-fed waters while learning about the local land and life.
Check in at your chosen departure time and then head toward the dock to board your airboat for a thrilling tour. As you set off on Lake Panasoffkee—just one hour northwest of Orlando—your captain navigates into a natural swamp and onto Little Jones Creek. Stop to admire the view and wildlife, and listen to your guide’s commentary.
Next, zip across the water to Big Jones Creek to see a natural spring that bubbles up to the surface. Along the way, look for alligators, turtles, snakes, deer, turkey, wild hogs, ducks, birds, and centuries-old cypress trees. The tour ends with one last photo opportunity at the secluded marsh and springs and then it’s back to the dock to disembark.
