Found online in a search and tried it out. My 10 year old said it was the best part of our week trip to the area. The guide was knowledgeable and took interest in the kids showing them all the things that could be found. Left the impression upon them about what Florida could have looked like without Disney.

This excursion was offered as a choice at the end of the cruise my family took on Royal Caribbean cruise line in June. They provided air-conditioned bus transportation to the air boat ride. Later, the same bus took us to the airport. All of our carry on luggage was stored in the luggage compartment of the bus, so it traveled... More

We booked the latest time (4:30pm) in hopes of seeing lots of gators on the banks and that proved to be successful! We did experience... More

The boat ride was so fun and full of nature. Our captain was extremely knowledgeable and I could tell he is passionate about the land, the river, and the wildlife.
