Orlando Gators Hunts And Bowfishing invites you to try something different in the Kissimmee Chair of Lakes. These lakes offer some of Florida’s best bowfishing opportunities. If you are up to a challenge, you have found the right place.

Orlando Gators Hunts And Bowfishing is based just a short drive from the Orlando theme parks. On your day out, you will be targeting Tilapia, Armored Pecos, various types of Catfish, Mudfish, and Gar.

You will begin one hour before dark. Your guide will teach you the basics and how to use the equipment. You will then put on headlights to see the fish and choose a compound bow. Gliding through the water, you will be searching for the prey. The sense of not knowing what is beyond the lights is an exciting and exhilarating experience!

Orlando Gators Hunts And Bowfishing will take you out aboard one of their 18’ Diamondback airboat. This spacious vessel can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers. Its single 500 HP Levitator engine will power you through the marshes. The boat’s lights are powered by an on-board generator.

All trips come with all the necessary equipment to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with bows for left or right handed anglers and pvc arrows. Drinks and snacks are included in the price, as well as fish cleaning at the end of your adventure. Welcome aboard!

Rods are fun… bows are more fun! Happy to help Florida decrease it’s invasive species population with each draw. The feeling that you get when you stick one of them is akin to the adrenaline rush you had the first time you walked through the Disney gates. Please! Don’t let this experience get pass you by!! Bobby was a fantastic guide and coach on what to do and what not to do. He was also very informative when it comes to the habitat of the chain of lakes we were fishing. LOVED every second of my time on the boat.

Captain Bobby Hensel was our captain/guide.  We planned an early arrival because of traffic to find Capt Bobby waiting on us.  We went for a short airboat ride over the waters we were going to shoot and he went over the rules of the boat.  He also showed my niece and brother how to use a bow, fishing for their first time and kept encouraging them throughout the trip once it got dark.  The trip ends at 11pm due to noise ordinance so I’d say the sign of a good time was it felt like a short trip as an experienced bow fisherman.  We saw many gar, tilapia, and alligators right at the boat for a great experience.  You have a choice to take your fish whole but on a night trip your tilapia will not be cleaned so prepare yourself accordingly.  It was a great experience and I could tell the Capt felt rewarded by his clients having a good time.  Very successful trip creating a relationship and memories.  Thank you Captain Bobby!
