Gator Country Alligator Park at Airboat Adventures is home to one of the most incredible alligators you will ever come face to face with! "BUBBA" is our 7ft, 15 year old, voice and hand command trained American Alligator! To our knowledge...truely a "one of a kind". "Bubba" has been raised since birth by his owner and trainer David and we are proud to have them both for the most incredible show you will find anywhere featuring an alligator! This is an absolute "DO NOT MISS" on your vacation to Panama City Beach!

It was fun seeing other wildlife in the area. My dad lives close to Panama City, so we decided to take in some of the local flare. First time on an airboat, so it was a little scary at first but the operator was so much fun that I forgot that I'm a little anxious on water. They did a... More

First time on an airboat. My son got to sit up top with the captain, and at the end he got to drive us around a little bit. He is 12 and was on cloud nine. Great fun!

The one thing my daughter wanted to do in FL was hold an Alligator, so we chose this place. Was very informative and friendly!

Had a great time! We didn't see any gators but the sights are beautiful. Not to mention our captain was awesome! Highly recommend.

We went during December which is apparently "off-season" for the gators. We didn't actually see any on our tour. However, the guide was fun and funny. He stopped to point out other wildlife and give interesting facts about the area. The boat ride itself was both exhilarating and relaxing. They provide hearing protection. The good thing about this airboat tour... More

A waste of time and money. Wouldn't recommend it at all. Very disappointing. Very commercialized, like a sausage machine.
