My husband and I did a 30 minute airboat ride with Carl. He is funny, and had lots of good information about the trees/alligators. He made the trip very exciting!

A trip to Florida is never complete without a stop at Wooten's and a visit with Captain Carl Nicholson. We give two thumbs up!

This was a great experience. My boyfriend and I (both in our twenties) loved the airboat tour. Our guide JR shared stories and was very personable. We also held an alligator! Overall a phenomenal experience and well worth the money!

We took our grandkids to Wooten's for an airboat ride and gator show. Robby was our airboat captain, and he was very entertaining! Our grandkids loved the airboat ride and the gator show, and we did too!!

Hi, LauriLynne. Thanks for asking. We rescued the animals from multiple previous owners who could no longer care for them. Most of the animals were raised in captivity, which means they must now rely on humans for food and... More
