OZELLO BOATS & RIVER ADVENTURE TOURS got to be a part of unfolding history as we made a HUGE discovery with the team from the TV show, Unexplained & Unexplored. While guiding the hosts of the show through parts of Florida including our own backyard here in Crystal River we discovered ancient canoes and the biggest find was an actual Mayan Pyramid right here in Citrus County! With our incredible findings, it proves there was an actual Mayan civilizations hundreds of years ago which was always a theory but we got to help prove it!
The Un-Adventurers celebrates the stories of real people who leave their home state for the first time ever to embark on journeys they've always dreamed of. Porsha, a single mom from Douglasville, Ga. who works for an airline cleaning planes, has never traveled outside of her hometown but dreams of one day being able to dip her feet into the Ocean. On her journey through Florida she makes a pit stop in Ozello to take her first ever airboat tour with Ozello Boats where she gets her first glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico.

Photojournalist Corey Beckman and crew from FOX 13 tagged along on a recent tour that encountered dolphins, manatees, plenty of birds, turtles and sting rays. On an airboat, all the propulsion is above the water, so they run a very low risk of hitting anything under water. Airboats also have amazing control, taking turns like a speeding race car, yet stopping and spinning on a dime. Ozello’s airboats travel along the shallow waters of the Nature Coast at a quick 25 to 30 miles per hour making it a very unique way to see the pristine, untouched parts of Florida.

"I knew going into this, it would be one of our greatest adventures but I had no clue that what we would find would actually change history! I'm so proud of our team for going above and beyond to make this happen."
"I always wondered how these TV shows worked and was curious if they were real or not... This experience made me a believer to the fullest. The discoveries we made can't be faked and never in my life did I think I would be apart of changing history."
