Go in the morning because the alligators are more active. Saw a super lot of alligators. The guide was very informative and caring!

Drove out to Lake Trafford to take Grandkids to ride the Air Boat and see alligators and learn the nature around Florida, as advertised. Have been there before and had a great time but this time our Tour Guide was terrible! He barley said a thing and certainly did not give us the ride we were expecting. If you do go, ask for the guide with the 'White Beard', he's amazing! Our guide was a dud! Had nothing to offer.

This was our 4th or 5th trip to Lake Trafford and Airboats and Alligators. We like to take our northern friends and family to see the gators and bird life that Florida has to offer. Airboat rides are a safe, sure way to do just that. The facility itself is messy little grocery store surrounded by a few caged birds and snakes for your viewing pleasure while you wait for your ride to begin, and the staff is nice but all business. “Do as you are told and wait your turn.” Lol. The ride itself is approximately 90 minutes long and you will see all the alligators, of all sizes, you care to see. The lake is full of them!! We also enjoy seeing the bird life. Yesterday we saw an eagle, some little stilts, cormorants, egrets, a swallow tailed kite, and a small flock of roseate spoonbills among the many other bird varieties too numerous to mention. Our driver was very informative and answered all our varied questions while he pointed out the sights of interest along the way. To sum up, don’t expect fancy, but if you want to see alligators and some of Florida’s wildlife in a safe way, give this a try. I think you will like it.

Had a scheduled appointment to go out on the boat tour for weeks and we were treated very poorly. 2 hour+ delay told to wear a mask while outside in the 95 degrees hot sun. Unacceptable very unprofessional won’t be back and you shouldn’t either. The place was very dirty even though they bullied you about mask wearing. Will get a virus just for walking in the store.

We experienced Lake Trafford from an air boat provided by Airboats and Alligators. Enter the backwoods of the Florida Everglades. Your guide will take you off the main part of the lake and through the twisting turning paths encased in grass, trees, and bushes that house all manner of wildlife. We even saw COWS! You will see plenty of gators. At some points the water is about two inches deep or LESS so you get to go muddin' in an air boat. Be sure to try one of God's created attractions, Lake Trafford. Give Him the glory for His thoughtful creation!

Nothing spcial. Just a big lake. If time would have permitted, I would have taken an air boat ride. Now that would make it interesting.

Have now done Everglades City airboats and Airboats and Alligators and firmly believe the Lake Trafford experience is far superior as you experience far more wildlife; lots of alligators, a variety of birds and a soft shell turtle. We got a hour + airboat ride around the lake. Grandkids, 6, 9 and 11 thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
