Great experience. Very informative and all round great tour guide. Came all the way from New Zealand and found this just great. Tony was our guide and did a fantastic job. Even fell in the water for us! Lol
we went on an 8:30 am tour on April 2nd, hoping it would be early and warm enough to have some alligator sightings. We did find one 5 foot and 2 smaller alligators, Captain Hunter got them to come closer to the boat with marshmallows. Being from Minnesota this was a novel experience, we also saw some raccoons, feral pigs, snakes and birds. Captain Hunter described the climate, ecosystem, shacks and homes we saw along the way, doing fabulous job of keeping the group engaged. He took time in the areas where there was specific interest and moved the boat along fast to cover more ground with the time we had. I was travelling with my partner, 19 year old son, and 16 year old daughter, we were all glad to have taken this trip.
