Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: You will be amazed as you glide through just inches of water in the creeks and marsh area's off of the Intracoastal Waterway just 5 minutes from the beach. Look for wild Alligators, dolphins, birds of all kinds and more...DO NOT go to the hair dresser before you go on this tour! Live gator shows Wed-Sat 7ft gator..."BUBBA", fully voice and hand command trained, you WILL NOT see this anywhere else!!! Get your picture taken with a live alligator too! Our captains and crew are the best in the business! We've set the standard that others have to follow! North Florida's ORIGINAL Airboat and Alligator adventure!

“Disappointed for price”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We (our family of 5, three kids ages 9,8, &6) were disappointed in the entire experience. The "alligator park" that you get free admission to with purchase of boat ride is just a few cages in the back yard with some alligators. The only thing worth any money was that we (all of us, kids included) got to hold a baby gator & get a picture with our own cameras. The airboat ride was about 40 minutes long and we saw no gators. If you are looking for entertainment and up close contact with sea/animal life go to Gulf World Marine Park, right in PCB.

“Great time even with a goose egg”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

The boat captain was funny and the trip was a great experience. The air boat ride alone is pretty cool. Get there early to hold the gator and get a picture. Worth it for kids!! Didn't see a gator on the boat but we had a blast.

“Bubba time...”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went to the gator show with Dave and Bubba...sure was good. Especially when he held Bubba like a baby due to the thunderstorm---Bubba doesn't like thunder! Took lots of pictures and then had to reschedule our airboat trip due to downpour. Went the next morning at 9 and saw gators in the wild. The guide was very knowledgeable about gators and the area. Very friendly people that run the adventures. Thanks for the fun time.

“Amazing boat ride!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The gator show was amazing plus getting to hold a live alligator! The boat ride was short and we didn't see any alligators but the captain made it so much fun! Definitely will be back again.

“Lots of fun!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Definitely a lot of fun!!

The staff is friendly & knowledgeable, and really do their best to make the experience memorable.

We had perfect weather for our excursion (heard the 2 tours before ours got canceled), couldn't have been better.

Be sure to bring lots of bug spray, and comfy shoes (especially if you decide to get out into the water - which is a MUST DO).
