The up close educational, hold the alligator if you want to, was fun for about a half hour then going on the airboat ride was a fun 45 minutes of some beauty, a few fun spins and an alligator. Front two seats can get a little splash, soaked if the driver and you want to. Nice small group activity. Enjoy!

Awesome time for our family! Friendly, courteous, entertaining and helpful staff. We loved the pre show, holding an alligator was the highlight! The boat ride was exciting, especially our daughters driving! Thanks to all who helped make our experience such a wonderful adventure!

We went on a daytime tour and saw just 2 Gators...Not much other animal life. A little disappointed we couldn't get a sunset tour. We were told they don't offer them this early in the season (mid April). The airboat ride itself was fun. Our driver/tour guide was knowledgeable and funny and kept us entertained.

Our tour guides were fun and informative. Before the group went out on the airboat ride we were allowed to walk about the property to view the gators on site and then were each allowed to hold a small gator and take pictures with it. The woman who led this portion of the tour was very knowledgeable and great with... More

Really fun, really informative! Our guide was full of information and peppered all with fun little jokes similar to the jungle boat ride at Disneyland!

We were in destin for a bachelorette party and the trip started off very rocky as we had horrible service everywhere we went. It was such a fresh breath of air when we go to talk to Deborah on the phone, who was extremely helpful! Then when we got to go on the boat, we had the best time! We... More
