We loved our air boat ride. We saw a lot of birds, gators, and even water snakes! Our guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Well worth the money!

Took a large group of students from England there last week and we had a blast! The staff and airboat captains went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time. The weather was gorgeous and the sightseeing spectacular!
