Owner description: Gator Country Alligator Park at Airboat Adventures is home to one of the most incredible alligators you will ever come face to face with! "BUBBA" is our 7ft, 15 year old, voice and hand command trained American Alligator! To our knowledge...truely a "one of a kind". "Bubba" has been raised since birth by his owner and trainer David and we are proud to have them both for the most incredible show you will find anywhere featuring an alligator! This is an absolute "DO NOT MISS" on your vacation to Panama City Beach!

We did the night time ride. It wAs a full two hour boat ride. We saw at least ten gators and one was 7 foot long. It was amazing. The tour guide also took us to look for dolphins. We didn't see any but at least he tried. There isn't one negative thing I can sAy about this.

This was an awesome experience. The kids loved getting to hold a small alligator. On our boat ride, we saw dolphins very close to our boat. After that, we saw a wild alligator. Our boat captain was wonderful. He was very funny, knowledgeable, and obviously loves what he does. We came back later in the day to see Bubba. It was amazing. The alligator just sat on the table and let the trainer talk to everyone. Then, he let everyone come up and pet him, sit on him, and even hug him. We have a special needs child and he was especially drawn to Bubba. Bubba just sat there and let our son, pet all over him, get in his face, make sudden movements, nothing seemed to bother him. The trainer was very patient and gave our son some extra time to warm up to Bubba and then let him spend some extra time with him It will be something our son never forgets. I highly recommend doing this. It has been the highlight of our trip to Panama City Beach!

We had a few hours between leaving our rental and flying out of the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and decided to pay a visit to the Gator Country Alligator Park. I called and found out that the boat tours were all booked up, but that we could come and look at their gators free of charge. The gentleman at the desk was very nice and offered to show us around...there were about 6 or so outdoor habitats that contained the gators and he let us hold one of the small ones for photos (no charge). He then put it on the ground so we could see it walk back to it's "home" and showed us the tracks that alligators make with their tails. He even offered to put together an additional boat tour so we could go, but there was just not enough time, although I really appreciated his offer.

This is a must do. Everything from seeing the gators at the park, watching the Bubba show, and taking the airboat tour was truly an awesome experience for children and adults.

We enjoyed the guide and the air boat ride, despite not seeing any gators. The ride was fun, and the guide was knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed his job. He also let the small children drive the boat at the end. Children 4 and under are free. It was also nice to be able to hold a small 5 year old gator at the main building. It's mouth was not banded shut. It would have also been nice to be there when Big Bubba is there. If you want to see him, you need to call ahead and find out when he will be there.
