This is my second trip to this location. Both times were a lot of fun and informative. We went with friends this time to see alligators and to see the Gator Boys from Animal Planet. We were not disappointed. The boat ride lasts about an hour and depending upon which captain you get, the information and commentary are informative and amusing. It was a very hot day, but the wind was blowing, so many of the birds we had seen on our last trip were in hiding. We saw a few alligators, but there were many more tour boats this time, so they were probably fewer gators to be seen. Our friends were avid fans of the Gator Boys show and one of the stars was in the alligator pen after our ride and put on a 10 minute show which was fun to watch and informative. Plenty of photo ops on the boat and also in the show.
There are also boat rentals and a boat launch there for public use. Small store with snacks and a gift shop and a small food stand to get some lunch.
