We thoroughly enjoyed our airboat trip with Captain Darald. His knowledge of nature and Florida's history was vast and extremely interesting. We are so grateful we spend our morning with him on the airboat. The gators were great too!

I think this adventure is geared more for school age kiddos. My grandkids are 6 and 9 years of age and I know they would love it.
