Came to have an airboat tour which we had, see some Gators which we did, but also found out a little about the lives & culture of the Miccosukee Indians! Had a great time, thanks!

We did the 45 minute group tour and it was a perfect amount of time to spend. Our pilot was Fabian. He was very knowledgeable about gators, their habits and actions. We also saw some birds and other wildlife. All in all a fun afternoon.
