Captain Jacob was amazing. We got to see close up two alligators. One was almost 9ft. He maneuvered the boat with such skill and amazing speeds. I was screaming and holding on to the poor person sitting next to me. We got soaked!! Loved every...More

Absolutely great. Great tour, saw Gators, hugged a baby Gator and got eaten alive by mosquito's. The guide we had, Jacob, is a fun guy and knows a lot about the area and wildlife. A must see.

Hi, We booked online to be sure we got the spots since we were in the area for a limited time. It all worked out great and was so worth the money! Kathy

Do you need to reserve spots ahead of time? Is there a way to buy tickets online, or do you have to just purchase when you go?

I would definitely book ahead of time. There was a very long line when we went and I'm so glad I booked ahead. You get fast tracked to the head of the ticket line.
Can anyone do the 'hug an alligator', do you have to book?
