This was definitely worth the money! My kids loved the tour and the fact that they got to hold an alligator. Captain Nolan was very informative and funny. We were able to see a lot of wildlife.

What a great tour. We were lucky to have Brandon, a steamboat captain-turned-tour guide whose knowledge of gators was only exceeded by his courage in handling the 9 or 10 footers we ran into. It was particularly interesting to hear his detailed answer to our...More
