About Orlando Airboat Tours ...
Jim and Angieís Story
Welcome to Marsh Landing Adventures, the parent company of Orlando Airboat Tours and Orlando Fishing Guide Directory and Guide Service.
Ms. Angie and I have always been outdoor enthusiasts, since we first met 50 years ago. Our outdoor adventures go back to our childhood days, as we each enjoyed living on a farm in rural Kentucky. It has always been our ambition, with everyone we meet, to talk about the beauty of Godís Creations. Enjoying the sport of fishing, both freshwater and saltwater, gave us the opportunity to visit the many lakes, streams, and oceans that abound in North America. Florida became one of those destinations in 1973. After relocating in the 90ís to Central Florida we immediately realized that central Florida had so much to offer. We knew that we would truly enjoy our new home (as people will express, welcome to paradise.)
Once we became familiar with the vast array of activities that Florida has to offer and researching Florida History, we learned that the Everglades begin with a small tributary, called Shingle Creek that flows into Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Florida and continues onward to the Gulf of Mexico. It covers over 3500 sq. miles.
In 2001, we relocated to Kissimmee, and I started as a fishing guide, on Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. This endeavor later became the Orlando Fishing Guide Directory, for both Saltwater and Freshwater fishing adventures.
In 2008 our Airboat Adventure began with the opportunity to invite visitors, both domestic and international, to experience the adventure of the Headwaters of the Florida Everglades. I wanted to use my experience to allow visitors to see what I to see what I saw, hear what I heard, and feel the rush and enjoyment of being outside to witness this amazing wildlife sanctuary.
A Ultimate Airboat & Eco Tours was born from that desire and we have grown and evolved into Marsh Landing Adventures / Orlando Airboat Tours. We are working hard to be the best at what we do and create a legacy and experience that will last a lifetime and offer a service that will continue for several years to come.
Head Outdoors and discover the real Florida! The bountiful beauty, treasured wildlife and all of the exciting ways there are to explore it. Just remember we are only invited guests to this world so please leave habitats as you found them and enjoy the experience on your next airboat ride in Kissimmee, Florida.
