This was a wonderful hour and a half. Our guide, Fabian, was soft spoken and dignified as he discussed the Native American heritage that he is trying to maintain in the park. He was very helpful and safety conscious. He also was able to find us numerous photo opportunities, up close and personal with alligators of all sizes. He also took time to explain the more colorful flora we encountered in the swamp. The water level was low for this time of year but Fabian maneuvered the airboat superbly through the grass shallows. Mid tour, the skies opened up and it poured. Fabian sensed that the deluge was coming and raced us to a restored Indian homestead where we took cover under thatch roofed structures. Several other airboats showed up some long minutes later and were already thoroughly soaked with the rain. Fabian explained some of the historical perspective for the Native American family that might have lived in this type of settlement. The guides also brought out some dogfood and attracted a nursery of raccoons (approximately 20) that frolicked at our feet for ten minutes. Some adventurous (silly) folks bent down and petted the little critters that were soaked through from the rain.
