Florida Airboat Tours
You will jump aboard our Airboat where you will cruise along the marshes and take in the beautiful surrounds. Lake Kissimmee is known for its lunker bass, and spectacular scenery.
When you take a trip on one of Grape Hammock’s nature tours in Central Florida, such as Florida airboat tours, you might catch gators wading in the water, sunbathing on the shore, sneaking up on a meal, or hatching from their shells. Besides gators, you could cruise past all sorts of native, endangered, and exotic creatures on your Central Florida airboat ride, including: various birds (such as eagles, snail kites, wood storks, egrets, herons, ducks), deer (native and exotic), hogs, turtles, turkeys and snakes.
Our USCG captains are native Floridians, born and raised on Lake Kissimmee. The best airboat tours take you along the shoreline of Florida’s third largest lake, through the back-water marshes and around unique fresh water islands. The boat is equipped with audio communication headset. It’s time to REALLY get your adrenaline pumping. You’ll be left smiling from ear to ear as you spin and glide across the mud, powered by that huge V8 engine!

What People Are Saying…
The knowledge of the Lake, and wildlife make it personal,and up close .
The loop around Brahma Island was rewarded with views of large deer with antlers still in velvet, a Tom turkey strutting and more Bald Eagles than we could count.
Very worth the time and money.
