We took our two kids ages 5 and 3 on this tour in hopes of seeing an alligator or two and it did not disappoint! We spotted a couple gators, lots of turtles, and some beautiful birds. The boat was very clean and the headphones were great for noise-dampening and great music while cruising around. Our captain and first mate were very knowledgable and funny and kind. Highly recommend!

Thank you Brittany for the kind words, we are so glad that Mother Nature did not disappoint on the gator sightings. We never know what all she will present during our tours, that’s one of the things that makes it exciting! Please stay in touch, we look forward to seeing you again soon! All the best!

I really enjoyed the tour guide and seeing all the nature. We even saw a manatee in the St. John’s river!

Wow…. That is AWESOME!!! Finding wildlife out in the wild is sometimes tricky, so glad to hear that Mother Nature was generous to us on your tour. Florida has had an issue with Manatees over the past few years, it’s good to know that we are still seeing them around. Please come back and see us again soon, we truly appreciate your business. All the best! Sea Serpent Tours

Great time on this tour with Captain Tyler. I highly recommend it. We did get to see some reptiles and a manatee. Enjoyed the ride and the cool off with water.

I took this same trip in July 2021 and was amazed at all of the alligators, snakes, turtles and birds that I was able to see. My trip in August 2022 was disappointing as we only saw 2 small gators and nothing else. Our boat captain was great and did his best to keep us entertained. I just feel that we should have been advised in advance that this was not the right time of year for viewing wildlife.

This is a great season, you apparently selected the wrong day/time for wildlife sightings. Wildlife sightings change on an hourly basis out here in the wild, as we have no control over what Mother Nature offers up for us to see. We always recommend that folks wanting to see lots of wildlife select a day and make a reservation at a time when lots of wildlife is going to be out, and don’t select a date/time when wildlife is not out. We at Sea Serpent Tours never know, so it’s always best to check with Mother Nature on that prior to making a reservation. Hope to see you again soon! All the best! Sea Serpent Tours
