I could have done this all day! It was amazing. The guys know what they are doing, know the area and are down to earth country boys. Even after you have went you will want to pay them to go again. Best money spent ever! I have told everyone I have seen about it.

This was our second tour with Captain Flame. The Captain lived his entire life in the area and had an obvious love for real Florida and made sure everyone went away with a little bit of that love. The first ride was in the summer and we had our 13 year old grandson Luke along. I think he had a... More

Our tour was a full hour and a half and we saw about a dozen alligators. Captain Darald was very knowledgeable about not only the alligators but all of the different animals we saw. He told us about the birds, fish and plants. He even had some fun Florida history facts for us. We did this as a family of... More

Had a great trip with ACANT! The captain was knowledgeable and entertaining. We were a group of 6 and 2 small children. The captain was great with the kids and made sure we all left with an Apple Snail Shell. Office staff made process easy. Great little area to get a bite to eat after with awesome steak tacos!

Nancy was very friendly and Captain Darald gave any excellent tour. We saw over a dozen alligators and a large variety of birds. The tour is twice as long as what you will get other places and very reasonably priced.

Captain Darald did a great job showing us all of the wildlife that central Florida has to offer. He was also very knowledgeable about the wildlife's historical significance in the colonization of Florida. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area!

The Captain was very personable and clearly loves his work. The boat held 8 so the tour was much better than others which carry more than 20 people. The tour was over 90 minutes allowing us to see many alligators of various sizes and many birds. We learned a lot and really enjoyed our time with Captain Darald.

This is the 2nd time my family has toured with Captain Darald and we learned many new things during this visit. Not only do you search for gators, but it is a true nature tour as well. The ride is a great way to mix the outdoors with a little education about the area and its inhabitants. Put this on... More
