This was an ok experience. The tour guide seemed knowledgeable and was funny. However, for the money we paid for a 30 minute ride, it was not worth it.

Not a great value-entire ride lasted 35 minutes from boarding to exiting. The captain was funny and seemed like a nice guy, but to spend $144 on a thirty minute boat ride (didn’t see anything to write about), it wasn’t a great value for the cost.

Great ride and captain was terrific! We just saw the small gator getting to the boat but it was still totally worth it!

Don’t expect to see any wildlife. It’s basically a loud boat ride on a river. If anyone on the boat is scared , it will ruin any sort of fun for everyone else. The captain was nice.
