We had an amazing trip. We were visiting Fort Lauderdale and I was looking for something to do that day and this was listed as one of the top things to do. I am so glad we did this. It was something I will always remember. Our tour guide made sure we saw an alligator up close and personal. We also saw a large turtle which was neat as we own some back home. This is something I would definitely do again. We also enjoyed the exhibit center seeing a 300 pound large alligator and being able to pet a baby alligator was the highlight of it all.

We went with young teens on the airboat tour and it was awesome! Everyone loved it and we got to see a live alligator up close! Disco was our captain and he was great and knowledgeable. I recommend.
