Had a really good time and saw many gators, however water was way down and ride was quite bumpy this time. Well worth the price

Great air boat ride. We took our daughter from Il. and son from Fl. We have been on others, but this one is the best. Captain Flame did an excellent job. We saw alligators, and so many different kinds of cranes. Some we had never seen before. Also a beautiful eagle. Will definitely be back.
