Worth the money - This visit was great! Despite the hot weather, we still managed to see 4 gators as well as multiple birds and "sea"... cows that were standing in the water up to their bellies. Conner our boat capt did an excellent job finding the gators and an almost extinct bird, Snail us great facts regarding the animals. Coasting across the water and lilies and stuff was so fun! We took the hour long 9:30am tour. Also walking the property seeing the gators, butterfly enclosure and gem mime was a nice addition.

Amazing - Best airboat ride I have done in florida, staff interacted with guests before, during and after ride, there was not much hope seeing the crocodiles due to the heat, but our guide found one and we saw some amazing animals including deer.

Airboat Adventure - What a blast. The guide/driver made the ride fun. Right off the dock there was a Bald Eagle perched on a pole next to the canal and he was quick to point it out. Saw Alligators and many other birds, plants and creatures. Guide was very knowledgeable and skilled at driving the boat.

A great Boat trip - Not a great overall experience - The boat trip in itself was fantastic . The guide was knowledgeable and slowed the boat in places where he thought we would have the opportunity to sea wildlife. We were lucky enough to see alligators on our trip but this obviously cant be guaranteed. What is probably doing there business harm is the other companies selling this excursion. We were picked up at 07.30 to arrive just after 9 when nothing at Boggy Creek was open you couldn't even get a cup of coffee with milk for an airboat ride at 10.30. once you have looked at the baby alligators and walked through the butterfly house there is nothing more to do. I don't know how these excursions / timings are booked but I think it could work better The hanging around for over an our with nothing to do took the edge off what was a good experience on the water.
