Captain Darald was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about the history of Florida. The trip couldn't have been any better, right from the booking to the excursion. I called and left a message and my call was returned right away. We went the end of January and we saw all kinds of wildlife, all of which was explained... More

Gators, big and small but did not disturb them for the show yet we slowed to a stop to get a look and snap a picture...Crested Caracara, Snail Kites in action, Bald Eagles.... More

This is not a staged airboat ride to see alligators. (like we did in the Everglades several years ago). Captain Darald does not force the gators to come to the boat, with food.
