This was probably the most entertaining activity we did while vacationing in Florida ( and we had a blast). We learned so much about the wildlife and plants in the area. The boat ride was fun! My kids havent stopped talking about holding the baby alligators while learning about them! Would definitely recommend and we plan on going back!

$120 for 3 was money well spent. Can't put a price on fond memories. Very informative, entertaining, and even interactive! A must if you want a REAL taste of the sunshine state.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to see several baby alligators in their natural habitat. What a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to all newcomers.

We went out on the airboat ride during a trip to visit family and enjoyed it immensely. Wayne was very knowledgeable of the lake's wildlife and his wife gave us an extended talk about alligators including a 40 minute petting session with her friendly pets trixy, victor and crockie. Highly recommended!!

It's amazing how calm they are and happy to be held. During our airboat ride we saw tons of wildlife and Wayne was very knowledgeable about the different species.... More

Even though the airboat was at capacity, we were only 6 toursists, unlike other airboat rides where you share the boat with at least 20 others. The ride was not as much of a thrill ride like with other operators, more of an intimate nature trail experience. The quantity and variety of wild life seen was amazing (at least 3... More
