We took the airboat tour, the guide was very knowledgeable. It's mating season for the alligators, and we saw a few. The everglades is a sea of grass, and we saw lots of different plants, some snakes and animals, and many birds.

Although their intentions are good, we feel generous with this 3star rating. At least 75 percent of the boat guides educational talks were done while the boat engine was running. With no speaker, amplification or head phones, if you were not next to him, you...More
