It was a fun outing. Guide was knowledgeable about the area in general. I would return again, and I recommend it to anyone who visits me and wants to do something different.

We didn’t see any alligators but our guide made it fun anyway, and it was nice to be out in the water with the wind blowing. Something different. Visiting the zoo afterwards is also fun.More

Yes, contact them. You must book in advance. They have many departure times and days. The woman who does the bookings is very nice and she will do her best to accommodate your needs.
