An hour on an airboat would’ve been cool enough, but Captain John knew right where to find the gators - big ones, babies, and swimming across the open water. Super fun and totally safe for the little ones.

You won’t regret going on this trip! Be sure to book your tour on a hot sunny day so the gators will be attracted to come out of the water. Captain John was able to answer all the questions as well as maneuver the boat...More
