Good experience, we didn’t see any alligators but it wasn’t the season and we saw plenty of other birds and reptiles. Bus trip was an easy way to travel to the boat, and our Captain was knowledgeable and friendly. I didn’t love that there was a baby alligator handed around to passengers personally, would have preferred the trip without this As I don’t think this is fair on the alligator; but that’s me. There was a long wait period waiting to start to boat tour, would have been better if this wasn’t about 45 minutes long, but at least the day was relatively warm.

A great tour. Tour guide was very informative and friendly. We saw so many alligators, maybe 30 to 40!!! Would recommend the 8.45am tour. Its early but our boat was 1/2 empty so you had a lot of freedom to move around. The 10.45am crew were arriving as we left and I reckon the boats would have been packed! Wholeheartedly recommend
We signed up for the airboat with the fan and we got the long one with rails on it. There was another customer who had the same issue. Other than that the tour was great and we had fun. You need to state exactly which boat you signed up for. It was very miss leading.
Simply amazing. Only downside is that they pull a baby alligator out of a cooler to take pictures with. You don’t know how long the alligator has been in the cooler for, and they feed the other alligators marshmallows, which can’t be good for them.
I got the advice to take the early morning boat and that was a good advice. Not so much people so you could take lits of good pictures.
The weather didn’t cooperate and it was too cold for alligators to be out but it was a great experience nonetheless!
