the 10 am tour on 2/20/2017 was led by a less than passionate guide. I did learn their mortgage was held by Wells Fargo in response to a question on funds for the eco system. If you pointed out to your party an alligator rest assured this senior gentleman would have a sarcastic remark.

Recently visited with my husband. Had a beautiful time. Once again amazed by the beauty of untouched nature, the wonders of history and kindness of locals. Great swim in the springs. Wonderful trails to just disconnect from the everyday. Had a very wonderful, relaxed and educating time. Great place.

The tour was relaxing and the guide was knowledgable about the plant-life and animals, but he did not seem as knowledgable about the water system we were traveling in, and we didn't see enough wildlife on our boat ride to fuel conversation throughout.

The guide was fun and informative. He taught my daughter some faboulous facts about marine biology. We saw the Moss man, alligators, turtles, birds, etc. We loved the information.

My mum and dad booked us on this trip on a day trip to the park. Great fun! We went out on the boat and saw herons, egrits, hawks, Floridian Vultures, coots, moorhens, loads of fish and best of all - in all my trips to Florida I saw my first real live, wild alligators! Lots of them!! The boat... More
