Swamp Safari & Airboat Ride

by Billie Swamp Safari Duration 4h Features animals Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $50

Discover the diversity of a pristine natural wetland on an exhilarating airboat ride among the region's fauna and flora. Then jump on a swamp buggy and head deeper into the legendary Florida Everglades. After your ride, get up close with a venomous snake during a swamp show.

The Seminole tribe welcomes you to discover their reservation and their peculiar cohabitants. Slice through the “River of Grass” aboard an airboat and look out for snakes, turtles, and local birds. Sit tight as your experienced driver accelerates and takes sharp turns with every opportunity.

When you think you have seen everything, a swamp elevated buggy awaits to venture through the lush 2,200-acre wilderness. Encounter an array of native and exotic animals along the way, such as deer, antelope, bison, and, of course, the main residents of the swamp—alligators.

After the buggy ride, check out an up-close presentation with venomous and non-venomous snakes or brave an alligator-handling show for some great photo opportunities.

Reservation through ecpedia did not work. It only insured we had a ticket. Our reservation for the airboat indicated 11AM, told by clerk we would not leave at 11, but 1PM instead because of a large group due to arrive in the next 30 minutes. The group was late so we had the airboat tour at 11:30. The buggy ride was delayed from 1 to 3 PM. We left early as this was too long to wait. Very disappointing.

The swamp safari was great. The 10- min airboat ride not so much. It was way too loud and way to short to see any decent of animals. I wasn’t prepared for the moose sich an airport males but I am sure that any wild animal would swim away long before we got there. I would even suggest that the noise and speed of the airboat is detrimental to the flora and fauna of the swamp reservation. We spent about 5 hrs on the ground of Billie swamp and it was overall a great experience. My 8-y old learned a lot about alligators and snakes and we saw tons of safari animals on the buggy ride. The snake show, critter show and alligator show are all worth your time. Just skip the airboat ride.
