We were under the impression that we would see alligators on the airboat tour. That is not the case. It was one trail through the mangroves, which was very nice. No wildlife to be seen at all. The alligators are in a fenced in area....More

Captain Jacob was amazing. We got to see close up two alligators. One was almost 9ft. He maneuvered the boat with such skill and amazing speeds. I was screaming and holding on to the poor person sitting next to me. We got soaked!! Loved every...More

Hi, We booked online to be sure we got the spots since we were in the area for a limited time. It all worked out great and was so worth the money! Kathy

Do you need to reserve spots ahead of time? Is there a way to buy tickets online, or do you have to just purchase when you go?

Call ahead to book time, this guarantees you a spot. We arrived early and they asked if we wanted to go earlier and we did. This gave us time to enjoy the animal park associated with Captain Jack's. Don't forget to see... More
