As part of family bonding time during a reunion, all 21 of us went to this attraction, which consisted of a alligator show (one tame gator) and an airboat ride. The show was fascinating, especially to the children who could pet & sit upon a 6' gator. The speaker provided great information about alligators & their habits, very worthwhile. Then... More

This was a great time. We started at gator country with Shelley. She educated us on alligators. We all got to hold one. She was very nice when I called to make reservations. Then we went out with captain Mike. He is very entertaining and informative. Love his driving. Only one regret is, the trip was not long enough.

On 6/19/14 we ended our PCB vacation with a 1 1/2 hour private ride on the Mudslinger for dads birthday and fathers day gift. Here in Nebraska airboats are plentiful on the Platte River but the experience with Capt Rick was one of a kind. He was genuinely funny while being very informative about the area, the intercoastal waterway and... More

My family went out with Mike our last day in PCB, and it was a thrilling end to our vacation. He showed us the alligators, and then took us for an awesome tour on the ICW. We saw an alligator up close out in the wild and we got to hold one before we left for our airboat ride. Mike... More

We totally enjoyed this boatride aka adventure. Captain Mike was very entertaining and gave us a lot of information and history about the area. The ride itself is awesome...if you have never been on an airboat you are in for a real treat. We also were lucky enough to see an alligator in its natural habitat while on the ride.... More

This was the coolest thing I done in Panama City beach! Loved being able to hold an alligator, and watch them being feed. Mike was very fun and entertaining! Highly recommend for everyone!

Really enjoyed our experience, our captain was very interesting and good fun. Sadly didn't see any alligators although 'Chicken' slunk in from the grass and made a massive splash. It did make me jump! Found out loads about the area, would definitely do this again. Not expensive, very good value.

One of the best activities we've done in our many trips to Panama City Beach. Everyone from the teenager to the four-year-old child loved it. Captain Mike could have just given the narrative, and it would have been interesting, but throw in a giant alligator, a bunch of babies and an osprey carrying a fish to its nest, and I... More

wanted to experience the water in a different way and had heard about this event. Turned into a great adventure with a little bit of alligator access before and then a fun hour on the river and marshes. we didn't see a lot of alligator (it was cold and still very early in the season), but there was lots of...
