This is not respectfull treatment of the animals. Its a shame and this so-called sanctuary should be closed down.

We did the airboat and the Everglades adventure. Our airboat captain Robby was great. He pointed out alligators, and was very informative. The animals inside were beautiful. Lots of alligators

We did the full combo (airboat, swamp buggy and animal sanctuary). Kids 5 and 7. They loved it. Thrill of the airboat. Saw some big alligators. Very educated and informative guides. Would recommend

I believe you have to be a certain height to ride on the boat. 2 year olds wouldn't make the cut. The ride goes fast at times with sharp turns
