We enjoyed our trip. We did the combo package that included wooten park. The airboat ride through the mangroves was great and we enjoyed our airboat captain Wes. He did a great job and was very knowledgeable. We went over to Wooten park and had another airboat ride through the grasslands and it was nice. However, the swamp buggy was... More

A very enjoyable hour with Captain Tony, who was very informative and good fun. We were lucky enough to see an alligator up close and several raccoons. The airboat experience itself is great and I would recommend this trip.

Where to begin? I was a little skeptical going out on a boat with complete strangers but Captain Billy put all of those fears to rest. The ride was very exciting, educational & just pure fun. We also enjoyed the connection with the other captains. We saw a large gator up close & a raccoon family. It was so awesome... More

Travelling solo, I wasn't too sure what to expect when showing up on my own. I was placed on an airboat with guide Mark and 4 other people. I chose to take the Mangrove Tour and Mark did not only take us through the mangroves, he also told us information about the area, showed us some of the animals that... More

The airboat tour was wonderful, but Captain Tony's knowledge added greatly to the experience!! Would definitely take more visitors here when they come to visit us.

It was nice. Guide was very informative but I don't remember his name. I recommend making a reservation. There were three of us in our group so they told us we wouldn't need one. We only had to wait about 20 minutes but we were on a boat with 2 kids under 10 and a very anxious mom who was... More

Face it, you're not going to see much of the mangroves unless you have an airboat. Our airboat captain, Captain Troy, was awesome! A master at navigating tight spaces, spotting wildlife and sharing the history of the area. This is a must do excursion and I suggest getting the full package. The swamp buggy ride was full of things to... More

The mangrove tour is really good. Our boat captain Tony was a really good guide. He made it exciting and fun. He informed us of the mangroves, the alligators and the animal life in that area. We got to see a 5 foot alligator, it was the first gator sighting that day. Tony told us how gators travel and their... More
