Wild Florida Airboats Embarks on Adventure through the Headwaters of the Everglades
In an effort to promote Orlando’s Eco Tourism and the Everglades, Wild Florida Airboats is embarking on an adventure on June 26th to paddle nearly 50 miles by canoe from the Headwaters of the Everglades in Orlando to Cypress Lake in Kenansville.

In the peak of Florida's summer, the guys at Wild Florida will set sail at the Headwaters of the Everglades near the Millenia Mall in Orlando. Their canoes will then follow Shingle Creek through downtown Kissimmee, where it eventually empties into West Lake Tohopekaliga. Shingle Creek flows under the Florida Turnpike, 528 Beachline, 417 Greenway, Osceola Parkway and Highway 192. After this, Wild Florida will paddle nearly 10 miles across West Lake Toho to the Southport Canal. After navigating the canal, they plan to float across Cypress Lake to their final destination, Wild Florida Airboats, located on the beautiful shores of Cypress Lake.
“This journey will take our guys through highly developed regions of Orlando as well as total wilderness areas,” says Ranier Munns, co-founder of Wild Florida. “Who knows what they might find and see?”
Wild Florida’s journey is expected to take 2-3 days to complete. You can follow their progress and check for updates along the way on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and at wildfloridairboats.com. Watch for their story in the local media too!
Wild Florida is accepting sponsorships and partners to join forces as they make this expedition a reality. Each partner will be highlighted before, during, and after the trip. Also, a special page will be added to Wild Florida’s website, http://wildfloridairboats.com, to document the journey and spotlight those who helped make it happen.
