Great experience on the St. John’s River. We saw several gators both large and small. Also saw numerous species of birds including bald eagle. Water was nice and high still due to Hurricane Irma.

I would do it again. Captain Matt explained every thing about the area and environment. He talked about hurricane Irma and the impact it had on the wildlife.
