this was the most informative thing I've done in years. Loved the airboat ride and the operator was very informative, and answered every ones questions with ease

Too expensive for what you get. The place is a real dump. $8 to see a bunch of alligators in a stagnant green, Moss covered pond. Or $35 for a 30 minute swamp boat boat ride to see another half dozen.

The kids really loved this part of our trip. From feeding the gators, to the airboat ride, it was a very pleasant experience. The airboat guides work for tips, so be aware of this. The guide we had was worth the extra money! Overall a...More

See gators up close in the pins and in the wild (on the airboat). This is the 2nd time we have been, worth the money. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and don't mind answering any question you have.

The tour guide worked hard to make this a memorable experience. We loved it, and all the gators on the ranch. Well worth the trip!

When we went this past summer it was $8 for the walking tour of the gator ranch, and $30 for the airboat ride. It was a lot of fun.

There were 3 bench seats that would appear to hold 4 per bench= 12 people. The front bench seat could catch some mist on the turns.

The cost was $30/adult. Don't know child. You need to call ahead of time to make sure they are running the boats. It was in the low 70's so we did not see any alligators in the wild. The only ones we got to see were the... More
