    Awesome to see an alligator in the wild. Enjoyed learning about them also. I recommend this experience to anyone.

    Check in Staff was very courteous and the loading and unloading of the airboats were very efficient. With all the airboats running, all the wildlife was spooked. It was a fun ride and the we couldn't ask for a more perfect day. The kids liked the Wildlife encounter where they got a chance to pet a gator. Would do the tour again, perhaps the nighttime tour.

    It was a great time. Tour guide was very informative. Only 6 miles from vacation village. Recommend this highly

    This was worth the money. Nice air boat ride without breaking the bank. Don't worry about printing tickets etc. Just book and you go in just give your name and get your wrist bank from your booking. I think you can just go in and pay too. Didn't see any gators of course. But the ride was fun besides. Didn't get wet so dont worry about that. They have a food truck on the way to their small habitat area. Pet a baby gator if you want. Very organized and clean facility.

    The coolest thing about this was the golden hour sundown photos. No gators seen, mostly birds (3 maybe 4 from an distance) and 1 iguana.

    Enjoyed the ride and got a experience of wild alligators in marsh lands. We were able to touch a baby Gator too.

    The experience was hassle free from start to finish. The boat ride wasn’t too long. Would have liked a bit more but was fine. Captain “Disco” was very fun and informative. After the short walking tour and visit of live alligators was really nice.

    The airboat ride was fine . Water level Is to high to see any alligators. Tour guide was not informative at all he just went through the motions but he was sure to mention tips were appreciated.

    This was an incredible, immersive introduction to the Florida Everglades - so seemingly remote and a world of its own. The staff and Captain were amazing - patient, informative, passionate and so knowledgeable. You could tell they really care and use this opportunity to educate and help preserve this unique ecology. Family had a good time together - so different than anything else you will ever do! Exhibits after were fun and very hands on - kind of a nature park. Don’t miss the gift shop and one of a kind souvenirs. Any of the guides are great but Captain Tim is a local hero 👍. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
