We didn't feel the need to ride the air boat, instead visited the zoo which was ok. Very quiet when we were there so it was more of a relaxed time for us.

It was extremely hot but the wind on the boat helps a lot. Our captain was Disco and he was very knowledge of the animals and the vegetation. He showed us how indigenous tribes used to get “bandaids” from the grass and pointed out different...More

Nice airboat ride but don’t count on seeing gators. They lied to us about it being mating season and high water levels for the reason we didn’t see any. Went to the Everglades swamp tours a couple of days later and saw hundreds of gators....More
