After paying $10 to get our car in, they wanted another $40 for us to take the tram out to the lookout tower. That, and it was almost two hours before the next tram left, which was not what it said on the handout they gave us upon entering. I have no doubt the views from the 65 foot tower are nice, but we never made it that far. Since we wanted to get our moneys worth, we walked the Otter Cave Hammock Trail, and the Bobcat boardwalk. Saw lots of birds, some anhingas, a few turtles. No alligators. We spoke with a family who rented bicycles and were on their way back, they said from the tower they saw one alligator, far off. Better viewing from almost anywhere on the side of the road.
