Great experience. We went on the first tour of the day to avoid the heat of the afternoon and it was perfect. Saw alligators, birds, turtles, lots of dragonflies, and nice swamp scenery. Educational and fun. Enjoyed when we went fast and turned...airboats are pretty cool.

We did the large fan boat gator tour it was a great time! It was a bit chilly but with coats and the ear protection they provide it wasnt bad at all. We saw at least 10 gators and stopped at a few spots and our Tour guide answered all our questions. We’ll definitely be back
