My wife and I had a great time on the small-group (6 passengers) tour with Captain Danny. We were initially worried about getting wet, but that didn't happen even though we were sitting in the front row. The boat doesn't splash much, even at high speed. Ear protection is provided as an option, but no one on our boat thought it was really necessary. Even though most of the big alligators have begun hibernating by November, we still saw a few smaller ones. Danny shared lots of info about the flora and fauna of the swamp during the tour. The bus pickup at our hotel was on time and the return trip begun immediately after we disembarked from the airboat.
