“Fun day with the gators!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped by this place after a cruise we went on. This place was so fun!! We went on an airboat ride and we saw several alligators. Afterward we went to the gator show, which was very entertaining. We also held Snappy which was a highlight! There is a small fee to hold Snappy but that goes towards helping to pay for the care of the animals at the park. We walked around the park and saw a GIANT alligator who was just laying off the sidewalk. We thought he might be fake but then we saw him move. So don't pet any gators that look fake, all gators in the park are real!! Was an enjoyable detour on our way home.

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Felt nice gliding around in the air-boat looking for alligators...we found few, but mostly sleeping :) !
Overall, I thought this was well organized, but felt the number of people in one air-boat should be lesser, to have more fun !!

“Great tour for all ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Really enjoyed the tour and animal exhibitions afterwards. Would have rated it excellent had we seen more gators, but I guess they cant control their moods. Paid a little bit extra to hold a little gator which I enjoyed = in my opinion that should have been free, but then the line would have been huge. Gift shop was a bit pricy but n one seemed to be complaining. Got a reasonable price at the bayside marketplace which is where we got picked up
