The menu at East Lake Fish Camp Marina and Restaurant at Boggy Creek has a wide variety of food to satisy even the pickiest of pallates. In addition to the fried gator nuggets, they also have chili, new england clam chowder, salads, catfish, wings, sandwiches, chicken fingers and philly cheese steaks. Many sandwhiches are offered including catfish, salads, wings and chicken fingers.
When we were done with lunch we toured the Boggy Creek Swamplands on a Boggy Creek Airboat Tour airboat going up to 40 miles per hour. In the picture above you can see where our airboat met up with the other half of the #DisneyGlobalEvent crew. I thought it was funny when we passed by because it was bloggers taking pictures of bloggers!
Billy also pointed out some apple snails eggs which were clinging to the lilys and plants and then showed us how big the apple snail grew too. Bigger than any snail I have ever seen.
All and all the boat ride was really realaxing. I could feel the sun on my face and the wind in my hair. There is always something about being close to nature that really puts me at peace. I had thought the airboat ride would have been choppy or at least a bit rough, but the boat just glided across the water like a hot knife slicing through butter. I never knew that such beauty exsisted so close to my home. It is pretty neat to have your eyes opened to new experiences right at your front door that will be easy to return too. Boggy Creek Airboat Rides and East Lake Fish Camp will be a stop that I would love to show to my children the next time we visit Kissimmee. Since we do not live too far, it would be a great day trip for the whole family! I am curious how the swampland changes in Florida from Season to season and I will return again to check. I know that is really odd for a lot of northerners to hear about a Florida season, but if you look closely at our Nature every plant and animal has a growing cycle with births and blooms. You can find Boggy Creek on Facebook, You Tube and Twitter.
I would love it if you could help spread our adventures by retweeting the below tweet! Thank you!
