Owner description: Gator Country Alligator Park at Airboat Adventures is home to one of the most incredible alligators you will ever come face to face with! "BUBBA" is our 7ft, 15 year old, voice and hand command trained American Alligator! To our knowledge...truely a "one of a kind". "Bubba" has been raised since birth by his owner and trainer David and we are proud to have them both for the most incredible show you will find anywhere featuring an alligator! This is an absolute "DO NOT MISS" on your vacation to Panama City Beach!

We didn't see any alligators, however the airboat ride alone was worth the trip. Capt. Mike was knowledgeable and fun. I would recommend this little adventure for your family.

My husband and I went on this night tour and were absolutely astounded at how incredible it was. We got to hold an alligator, we had a hilarious and knowledgable tour guide, the boat ride alone was amazing, and we saw a pretty large gator in the end called Chicken! The guide clearly loves what he does and it just made it an incredible experience for everyone. I would not critique anything about this! You're crazy if you don't go!

We went on the sunset ride....clearly the only ride where you will see numerous gators out and about. You get to 'play' around in the airboat checking out the wildlife and the river/bay, take pics with the sunset, etc, until it gets dark enough. THAT's when the gator action begins. THe day tours are more eco tours, just so you are aware...not really gator tours as the gators are mostly nocturnal. Thus, the sunset ride costs more...for a reason...so do that one!

We did the night time ride. It wAs a full two hour boat ride. We saw at least ten gators and one was 7 foot long. It was amazing. The tour guide also took us to look for dolphins. We didn't see any but at least he tried. There isn't one negative thing I can sAy about this.

This was an awesome experience. The kids loved getting to hold a small alligator. On our boat ride, we saw dolphins very close to our boat. After that, we saw a wild alligator. Our boat captain was wonderful. He was very funny, knowledgeable, and obviously loves what he does. We came back later in the day to see Bubba. It was amazing. The alligator just sat on the table and let the trainer talk to everyone. Then, he let everyone come up and pet him, sit on him, and even hug him. We have a special needs child and he was especially drawn to Bubba. Bubba just sat there and let our son, pet all over him, get in his face, make sudden movements, nothing seemed to bother him. The trainer was very patient and gave our son some extra time to warm up to Bubba and then let him spend some extra time with him It will be something our son never forgets. I highly recommend doing this. It has been the highlight of our trip to Panama City Beach!
