Best 25 dollars spent on this vacation! Guide was kind, knowledgeable, and patient. We saw many alligators and raccoons and a few wild hogs. It was a hot and humid day but boat is covered and breeze is delightful.

The boat we went on was covered. I assume they are all covered. Most of the seating was at the center minus a couple seats on the back which is where we sat which turned out to be the best place to view in my opinion. Very... More
