Experiencia diferente, aunque estuvimos un buen rato no conseguimos ver ningún cocodrilo desde la barca. Todo y eso, la velocidad y el paseo por esa zona valieron la pena. Dimos una pequeña vuelta por el parque y vimos otros animales. Allí pudimos ver un cocodrilo gracias a un guía que nos indicó.

The 30 minute tour was packed with information and unique experience (for me) riding on an airboat. I knew it was going to be loud because they gave you earplugs but I didn't know that they would be stopping to be able to talk and describe. Saw a small gator and an iguana, various birds.

The 30 minute tour was a little short, and we only saw two gators. I was hoping to get out a little further and see more wildlife, but i guess with the enormously loud fan boats, wildlife doesnt hang around. Regardless, it was really cool and the guides were very knowledgeable. I would however inquire about the 60 minute ride that I didn't even know about until after i bought the tickets.
