excellent ride. We did not have to wait in line to get our tickets as we booked the trip in advance. The trip was very nice, lots of alligators, a turtle, fish and birds. The kids loved it. Well worth it!

We had a truly wonderful experience on the air boat with a knowledgeable and entertaining boat captain / guide. We were fortunate to see a territorial standoff between two male alligators, an even that could not have been planned. The attached animal sanctuary helps to remind us of the importance of these beautiful creatures to our ecosystem.
