We took 2 couples visiting from out of town who expressed an interest in "seeing the everglades and maybe some alligators." This was a first rate experience - as long time residents, I can't believe we hadn't done it sooner. We lost count of the...More

Captain Keith did a great job. Even on a day with less than ideal weather we saw plenty of birds and alligators up close and all along the ride. Very fun and informative!

Had a really great trip on an airboat here. Saw huge amount of birds and quite a few alligators. The captain obviously knew the places to go. Didn't look too special when we arrived, pretty low key, but definitely worth it

Had a great time. Make sure you go when it is warm out. We only saw 3 alligators on our trip. The boat ride was awesome.

It was about an hour and half. We were able to see a lot of gators and even a baby. Never saw one in the wild before and lots of birds. I suggest going in the morning to see more wildlife.
