What a great experience. Enjoyed every minute of the tour. The only thing visitors need to be aware of is that you need to make your own way to the location. It is about 40 minutes out of town and if you don't have your own transport you could be walking a while or stranded.

We had a great trip! Our guide I wish I could remember his name was great. He grew up in this area and was quite knowledgeable when it came to the information about the plants, trees, wildlife, etc. There were moments when the ride was exhilarating, and moments of slow, calm riding where we could just enjoy the beauty of the land. In the end, he surprised us by allowing us to hold a baby alligator. I highly recommend this excursion!

We loved the tour. We got up close and personal with the wildlife in the swamp including the alligators! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and consequently we learned a lot. The small boat allowed us access to venues and wildlife that the larger boats could not manage. We are seasoned travelers and were very satisfied with our excursion.

We had a blast! Saw tons of gators and our guide Larry was very knowledgeable. He threw marshmallows and chicken out for the gators and they came right up to the boat. Got to hold a baby too!

Great tour! Lots of excitement on the air boat going through the marshes but also very educational on how important the area is.

Rocky was the man. Unbelievable experience. He got gator after gator up close and personal and when we were cruising the waterways, we were absolutely flying!
