Beautiful air boat ride across the everglades, on which the guide told us all about the local wildlife. Also got a tour of their conservation area, with alligator and turtle enclosures. Fully recommend!

We were in a group tour and really enjoyed the full experience of hearing the story of the Tigertail family. We saw no sign of cruelty noted in some reviews. The animals are all treated with reverence and respect. We would definitely go again.
