I run a different tour company in the area which I'm not going to mention because I'm not writing this review for self-promotion. Mike, our tour guide did a phenomenal job entertaining everyone, having fun, and making this a memorable experience. As someone who can really appreciate the work that goes into this sort of tour, these guys are top-notch.... More

We booked this based on TripAdvisor reviews and wish we hadn't. We booked 4 seats on a 3 PM cruise. Got there and had the option to hold and take pictures with a baby alligator. After that we were taken to an old bread truck with wooden benches along the inside. The truck stunk like gas, was loud and not... More

We scheduled our adventure for an evening boat ride, we got rained out but they were really cool about it and rescheduled us for a Friday night which was a night they don't usually give evening airboat rides. We got there early and were able to see some gators they had at the ticket house and the really cool part... More

Super fun adventure . Mike the boat captain was the best. Got to go on the newest airboat and we saw an alligator . Apparently it's pretty rare to see them in the day in the summer due to the heat. Mike was very knowledgable about the area. Got to hold the small alligators at the facility. Got some great... More

My husband wanted an airboat rode to checkmark a bucket list item. You board an old delivery truck to head to the boat. That was a little creepy seeing all these people boarding a windowless vehicle. Inside is all these names and markers to add your name. Captain James was knowledgeable about the eco system and the boat which had... More

Our adventure began with Cindy who was very knowledgeable about alligators and shared some interesting facts with our group. She was super sweet and was patient as we all took turns holding Thing 2 (the baby gator) and took pics! We then had a few minutes to check out the other gators. I rated this a 4 and not a... More

We called and got a reservation the same day. When we arrived it was storming on the water so we did have to reschedule the boat tour, however the gator guide allowed is to hold and touch a gator, walked us around to see other gators, and interacted with us for a while. He was very personable. The next morning... More
