We took 2 teenage grand daughters and their Mom on this trip last spring break. They loved it! The driver and boat were great. You get the feel of "Old Florida" and see several gaters.

Our guide was knowledgeable & interesting. Talked about the area & it's inhabitants. Shared his experiences. We saw deer, gators & quite a few others. It was zipping thru the bush & open water.

We had sooo much fun today. The Captain was very knowledgeable about the area and certainly knew where the Gators were hanging out so we saw lots of animal life and coming back we went really fast it was such a blast...Thanks soooo much

We had a fantastic tour and saw tons of wildlife. At the end the guide pushes it to full speed and swerves around like mad - this can be fun if you're adventurous and don't mind getting soaked to the bone (in the front seat)...More
