"BUBBA" is our 7ft, 15 year old, voice and hand command trained American Alligator! To our knowledge...truely a "one of a kind". "Bubba" has been raised since birth by his owner and trainer David and we are proud to have them both for the most incredible show you will find anywhere featuring an alligator! This is an absolute "DO NOT MISS" on your vacation to Panama City Beach! « less

We didn't see any alligators, however the airboat ride alone was worth the trip. Capt. Mike was knowledgeable and fun. I would recommend this little adventure for your family.

My husband and I went on this night tour and were absolutely astounded at how incredible it was. We got to hold an alligator, we had a hilarious and knowledgable tour guide, the boat ride alone was amazing, and we saw a pretty large gator in the end called Chicken! The guide clearly loves what he does and it just... More

We went on the sunset ride....clearly the only ride where you will see numerous gators out and about. You get to 'play' around in the airboat checking out the wildlife and the river/bay, take pics with the sunset, etc, until it gets dark enough. THAT's when the gator action begins. THe day tours are more eco tours, just so you... More

We did the night time ride. It wAs a full two hour boat ride. We saw at least ten gators and one was 7 foot long. It was amazing. The tour guide also took us to look for dolphins. We didn't see any but at least he tried. There isn't one negative thing I can sAy about this.

This was an awesome experience. The kids loved getting to hold a small alligator. On our boat ride, we saw dolphins very close to our boat. After that, we saw a wild alligator. Our boat captain was wonderful. He was very funny, knowledgeable, and obviously loves what he does. We came back later in the day to see Bubba. It... More

We had a few hours between leaving our rental and flying out of the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and decided to pay a visit to the Gator Country Alligator Park. I called and found out that the boat tours were all booked up, but that we could come and look at their gators free of charge. The gentleman... More

This is a must do. Everything from seeing the gators at the park, watching the Bubba show, and taking the airboat tour was truly an awesome experience for children and adults.

We enjoyed the guide and the air boat ride, despite not seeing any gators. The ride was fun, and the guide was knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed his job. He also let the small children drive the boat at the end. Children 4 and under are free. It was also nice to be able to hold a small 5 year old... More

My son and his dad rode the air boat, before they rode, we did get to see and hold a 5 month old gator, that was interesting.. then we had to ride just right across the road to where the boat docks at, they hopped on, got all set to go and off they went, about 45 minutes later they... More

Definitely a "Must See". Visited Gator Country Alligator Park because we needed to try something new. We've been to the dolphin cruises in Destin, twice, and saw more on an alligator sighting trip! Captain Mike was entertaining and polite. He trained all of the animals to show up at the places he stopped. From the pods of 15 to 20... More
