My kids went crazy when they saw the Gator they call Cadillac. He was about 12ft long and 800lbs. I had a very nice time with my famil and the air boat ride was safe and fun. Bring bug spray.

We brought five children under age 10, and had a wonderfully time. Capt. Robby gave us a fantastic airboat tour and Shelly was very knowledgeable about the Everglades. The kids loved the animal sanctuary and got to hold a baby alligator.

Purchased this airboat tour and unfortunately it was probably just the wrong time to do it. Water is record high and only saw two gators and one was guarding a nest near the dock. Boats need to go slower since water is so high. Also...More

where did all of the animals in the sanctuary come from? Their enclosures seem small and boring. I actually felt bad walking through there

Hi, LauriLynne. Thanks for asking. We rescued the animals from multiple previous owners who could no longer care for them. Most of the animals were raised in captivity, which means they must now rely on humans for food and... More

We were recommended by our hotel to go to Wootens, they sold us a discount ticket, and advised us to just show up.
Is the airboat ride really all ages? We have a two-year-old and the video on the website and reviews online sound like it might be too fast for her without a seatbelt. Do you have child life jackets available?

I believe you have to be a certain height to ride on the boat. 2 year olds wouldn't make the cut. The ride goes fast at times with sharp turns
