Gator Country Alligator Park at Airboat Adventures is home to one of the most incredible alligators you will ever come face to face with! "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!

This was our first time around alligators and we learned a lot from the office employee and we got to hold a small gator which is required to have its jaws banded due to a change in policy. The air boat is a short drive from the office. We saw one alligator but not mama who is said to be... More

We had a coupon to get $2. off per person in our group which helped. We were able to see bald eagles and dolphins, but unfortunately was unable to see an alligator in the wild. They did do a brief explanation about gators where you pay and have an opportunity to hold an alligator. That was neat! It was a... More

When we got there we pd and they told us we could go see the gators while waiting for our boat. Seeing the gators consisted of three cages with two holding one alligator each and the third had babies in it. That took all of 10 minutes. Then the lady had us sit file a small Q&A session that was... More

Great spot for kids. Get there early to visit the gators in the backyard and to take photos. Owner didn't charge for taking photos just asked for a tip so it was pretty reasonable $$$$ adventure. Kids loved the actual air boat ride. We saw 1 alligator and the driver was very knowledgeable.

My grandkids can never leave Panama City without visiting this place. Their highlight is to have a group photo taken holding an alligator. Everything about this place is for kids; but parents also love it! Loads of fun!

Capt. Mike was very fun and funny. We didn't see anything out on the water, but it is off season. Capt. Mike made this trip well worth it. And we even ran a little late and they made sure to call and check on us to make sure we were still coming. Good prices for a great time. Loved it,... More

I called to reserve a spot for this while we were vacationing in PCB, the lady on the phone wasn't overly friendly and when we arrived on the day of the ride she had messed the days up and put our reservation on the wrong day yet very rudely tried to blame her mistake on me! There was room left... More

End of season trip.. While we did not see any gators in the wild our boat captain Mike made it an enjoyable trip. He knew a lot of history, and wildlife.. Will try this again.. Well worth the money..
