Exelent airboat operater, and tour information.
interesting tour around zoo.
This tour was amazing well worth a visit only negative feedback was a very small bus and felt extremely claustrophobic
Got pick up from our hotel.Had a 45 minute drive to where the airboat ride.Enjoyed the 30 minute ride was lucky to see lots of gators.We had our photo taken with a small gator,they did not push you to buy them.Next looked around the wildlife park,which was good,took lots of photos.A nice relaxing trip away from the busy parks.
The tour was fast paced and a lot of fun for us and our 4 yr old. We got much closer to alligators than I would have expected. The boat moves quick over swamp waters seemingly like magic. At the end they let us hold an Alligator which was really cool.
Great tour, did the 1 hour airboat ride, saw lots of gators and got to hold 'Oscar' the baby gator after the boat trip. Lovely wildlife park attached too with Jerry the rescue zebra who was so cute and friendly! Great half day, would recommend highly
We really enjoyed the airboat tour even though we didn't see any gators in the wild. The water Lillie's were just beautiful and we enjoyed the many birds. The staff was friendly and helpful. The natural "zoo"like area was informative. We especially liked the swamp area. This was a good short side trip.
The airboat ride is great fun however for an area that is supposed to have over 1000 alligators it was a bit disappointing to only see 2. Apparently the weather was too cold for them and they were staying under the water. Given that this is only a half day trip is was a pity that it wasn't organised as an afternoon visit instead of an early morning one. This would enable to weather to warm up and bring more alligators to the surface.
Worth doing if the weather wasn't cold.Even the alligators felt too cold to surface.
All the time on the boat we were hoping for the ride to end.
