This was a quick tour, but a lot of fun (we did the half day tour). The tour guide was informative, with a great sense of humor. The airboat ride was amazing and we were able to see live alligators.

The boat ride to the gulf and seeing the dolphins was the favorite. The airboat ride would of been better if we could of gotten a little closer to the gators.

I enjoyed the safari. Morning was enough time. Guides were informative and very pleasant. Although I live in Florida and have had many alligator sightings, I have never seen so many alligators at one time and the number of different birds we saw was amazing.
