Great gator experience - The area we rode in was beautiful. The place was well organized. We were able to see two gators, which I know there’sa chance to see none. The boat staff was great! We loved it!

Fantastic experience - This was one of the highlights of our trip to Florida. A great experience in nature, away from the theme parks. It was not a long drive away from Orlando, and we loved seeing the alligators and birds in their natural environment. Plus really enjoyed riding the airboat. Would have loved to have done the 1 hour tour and would definitely come again.

Amazing ride - do it - Amazing trip with captain Steve. Wanted to do this for a long time and lived up to expectations. We saw eagles, herons, gators and lots more. Very different to the chaos of Orlando.

Fun Experience - Airboat was a new fun experience. Saw a few big gators and a baby. We did not do the Native American experience and we should have. That looked fun too!

A delightful surprise! - This was a unexpected delightful surprise of a place to visit. We enjoyed the airboat ride but we also enjoyed the butterfly house and all the beautiful plants. The drivers were great, and we got to see a few gators. It is worth the trip for young and old. Peaceful!!!

Disappointing - Disappointing … I’ve been here on 2 previous occasions, however this visit was a very different experience. The driver of the airboat really didnt want to be there and only stopped once to see half a baby alligator in the reeds. No twists or turns, no information about the surroundings . Absolutely not worth the money.

Mhmm. Wouldn’t do again. - Was such a disappointment for the money we paid. We only did the 30 min tour. We did see one gator but… we drove about 10 minutes tops saw the gator. Guide turned off the boat and talked for 10 -15 about stuff then turned around and drove back. Why didn’t we go around more and see things. I guess saving gas money. No clue. But unfortunately it was great. Very disappointing.
