Loved the airboat ride with Laura! She was very informative, took her time and answered any questions, etc. The park was small but good, we had some fun looking at the little monkeys and the Mccaw birds. The drive-thru safari was great! I loved the zebras. Would have been nice to see a few more exotic animals in the safari but was still great!

Excellent tour. Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and answered every question. We learned so much on the trip along with breathtaking views and an unforgettable experience.

Our guide Todd was great and provided a history of the area. We saw several alligators and babies. One very large alligator around 12 ft. Great 1 hr ride.

I would recommend going on the air boat ride. It was a lot of fun and the guide, captain Chris Passmore, was very knowledgeable about the wildlife.

Captain Roy was GREAT! Really enjoyed this activity.
