Gator Country Alligator Park at Airboat Adventures is home to one of the most incredible alligators you will ever come face to face with! "BUBBA" is our 7ft, 15 year old, voice and hand command trained American Alligator! To our knowledge...truely a "one of a kind". "Bubba" has been raised since birth by his owner and trainer David and we are proud to have them both for the most incredible show you will find anywhere featuring an alligator! This is an absolute "DO NOT MISS" on your vacation to Panama City Beach!

We really enjoyed the whole experience. Our capt, ranger was super fun and educational. I wish we would have seen more gators out on the airboat, but that was just our bad luck. The boat ride is very relaxing and fun

The trip starts out at their place of business where you're allowed to interact with a small alligator while waiting to catch an airboat ride down the river. Our guides were extremely informative about the area and it's inhabitants, and you could tell that they...More

First time on an airboat. My son got to sit up top with the captain, and at the end he got to drive us around a little bit. He is 12 and was on cloud nine. Great fun!

The one thing my daughter wanted to do in FL was hold an Alligator, so we chose this place. Was very informative and friendly!
