Greg was our airboat guide. I -think- he was playing up his redneck act a bit (in a good way). But then . . . maybe that was the real Greg after all! In any event, we didn't see any alligators out on the water....More

Thanks Captain Greg for a hilarious time. We had an amazing time exploring the mangroves, visiting Charlie the alligator and the friendly raccoons. It would have been great to see more wildlife but...it happens. Worth the experience. Ask for Greg he will keep you laughing.

About an hour from Daniels & I-75 intersection. I would recommend wearing shorts and a t-shirt.
