When my family was in town this was a great way to get together and experience nature. My niece and I both were able to hold alligators before we all went out for a really cool airboat ride.

We really enjoyed our airboat ride and alligator handling. Captain Joe did an excellent job of pointing out the wildlife and giving additional information about each one. We highly recommend them for anyone looking for an airboat ride.
