An amazing trip with Real Florida to Boggy Creek. Family if 6 with a couple of teenagers. We were picked up on time at International drive Star Gazer by Gary. The ride to the venue was smooth, comfortable and informative. Gary told us about the trip and others on offer and recommended a few places to eat too (Best of British Pub was amazing, and I'd recommend that too) The drive was about 45 mins in an air-conditioned vehicle We checked in at Boggy Creek and had about 40 minutes to wander the park (which isn't too big) but we fed the Alligators, fed the Butterflies and mined for gems. We then went on the Air boat ride for a 30 minute trip and what an amazing time that was, our guide (Captain Patrick) was brilliant, he made the ride exhilarating but also slowed a few times to take pictures if the Aligator (we saw 1) and the native birds about the Native American Island. We then had another wander around the park and then the farmers market which was running (every 3rd Saturday of the month) We've been to Orlando a few times and never done a trip like this but we will definitely do more when we return in May 2024 Thansk again Gary and the Real Florida team for a great trip and extremely reasonably priced too.

We’ve enjoyed our morning tour down to Boggy Creek with Paul, our guide, who was friendly and knowledgable and drove calmly and with care. Boggy Creek is a touch of nature near to Orlando and definitely worth a visit. The airboat ride was fab!

Good 3 hours round trip to Boggy Creek from International Drive, including 30 minute airboat ride and saw at least 10 gators ranging from adult to baby. Park is small not a great deal to do, you could only spend approximately 2 hours there maybe 3. Tour guide Paul was friendly and made sure everything went well, overall a good mornings trip and experience.

I was on a business trip and was looking for a pure Florida experience before catching my flight back to Midwest. I am so glad I went on this trip! What a great way to spend a morning on an airboat getting up, close and personal with real alligators! The nature park with butterfly exhibit, gem mining and native American village was a lot of fun too! Our driver was exceptionally warm and friendly, she went out of her way to hold my suitcase so that I could be on my way to the airport right after drop-off. Absolutely recommended!
