The skipper was very knowledgeable abut the area, both the history and the wildlife and managed to get a number of gator sightings as well as a raccoon. He also had a baby gator which we were able to 'pet'.

We had Rocky as our tour guide. He was great gave us a bit history and answered all questions. Made sure to be fair to both sides of the boat to so everyone could get photos and made it a point to bring us all close enough within everyone comfort level.
