We have 4 kids, 15, 14, 5 , and 4. Is this trip safe for even the young ones, and are there any alligators in these waters?
The tour is very safe! We have never come across an alligator on a tour yet the chance is there. We paddle through brackish waters, and the alligators typically spend their time in fresh waters.
Our minimum age is typically 6 years old to join the tour.
We have found that it is sometimes difficult to keep younger children's attention for the entire 2 hours in a kayak.
That being said... we have taken younger children on tour based on the parent's confidence in their particular child.
We simply ask parents please understand there will be other people with us who are looking for a relaxing experience and misbehaving children will hinder everyone's experience.
