We did the half day tour and while I felt myself wanting a little more walking time I also passed out on the bus ride home so full day may have been too much. Darren was an excellent guide, super knowledgeable and kind. He was also the one driving the tour bus and we felt very safe. He was a great teacher, asking questions of us too, getting everyone engaged. On the trail we saw so much wildlife and a huge alligator! You will see herons and other birds very close! And turtles and fish mostly. Fanboat ride was very fun. You’re given ear protection and a poncho. It’s windy but so fresh out there. I was expecting a swamp to smell stagnant but it’s not actually stagnant the water moves very slowly Darren explained. He also touched on the cultural influences of the area including some of the tragic impacts of colonization. Elvis was our boat captain. You go to a Mikkasukke (I am probably spelling that wrong sorry) reservation and take the boat to a structure built on the water. There we met “Mama” a big 60 year old alligator who Elvis has known since he was 13. She chooses to live near the structure but is very much wild and he explained to us that he thinks it began because one man there used to feed her and explained she even knows the sound of his voice and boat. We learned a lot about alligators and I no longer felt fearful (though still very respectful of their abilities as a predator) Best surprise was a baby alligator! So cute. Darren said it was about 2 years old. So convenient to be picked up and dropped off at our hotel. We got a cute water bottle to commemorate our adventure. Remember to bring cash to tip the boat captain and tour guide! They deserve it and I wish I’d brought more cash along.

Awesome 1/2 day trip!
Mindy_M

Great trip! The nature walk was fun. It’s flat and paved so good for all fitness levels. We saw a snake, several alligators, from babies to mamas. Ben and Lindsey were great! Funny, kind and knowledgeable. They were also very accommodating to everyone’s needs. They even let a lady and her dad bring several large suitcases on the bus and made separate arrangements to get them to the cruise ship terminals after the tour. That’s above and beyond!! The airboat was super fun! Elvis was amazing as was meeting “Mama” the 60+ year old gator who Elvis has a crazy connection with. A super fun day! I have lots of great pictures but they wouldn’t upload? Bummer. I highly recommend this 1/2 day trip! Worth every penny!
