So much fun! First we took an air boat ride with Louis, who was informative as well as very funny. The ride was an hour long and we saw so many wonderful things! Lots of alligators (up close), an iguana, birds, and lots of plants and trees! After the ride we had our photo taken (free with the ride) and... More

We bought the regular ticket for 1 hour on a speed boat with a following 20 minutes show. The boat ride was fun, we saw a gator baby and about 4-5 grown ups among other creatures (iguana, birds and so on). The show was.. Yeah. Not that good, but not bad either. For 5$ extra you could hold a baby... More

The boat ride was very cool. We had a good driver. Alligators swam right up to boat. The alligator show was not 20min long though. It was a 5min show, with 15min of waiting in line to take a $5 picture with a baby gator. They are also very tip demanding there.

This was well worth a stop before the airport on Sunday afternoon! Rocky, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was really impressive the way he maneuvered the boat so both sides could see attractions. The gator show was very entertaining.

We took a lovely boat ride with a great tour guide we did see two gators in the water along with other wildlife. Luckily we sat in the side of the boat so could clearly see and the boat turns around so all get to see. The gator show was disappointing not really what we expected and hard for the... More

Great day be had here, the weather was a drift it went from sunny to rain in a matter of minutes but that did not matter the adventure had to continue. Saw a few different alligators on the wild, even to bull alligators fighting over territory that was awesome.

If you want to have a truly authentic Florida Evergaldes experience, this is your destination. Our captain happened to be the one and only "Tre" of "The Gator Boys", not only was Tre able to make the tour informative he also added a blend of humour to delight all on board. It was easy to distinguish that Tre was not... More
