We did not see any gators but still had a good time. All three kids (7, wo and 13) enjoyed it as well as the adults. Staff were fun, friendly and professional.

The tour was fantastic even though we didn't see any gators (it had been raining and stormy right before our tour). We saw dolphins from the dock before the tour started, and our guide was very entertaining and made it a great time for all!

This was definitely one of the highlights of our Panama City vacations. The whole family enjoyed the trip. Our guide was Capt Ed. He was extremely informative and made us all laugh. What a great time.

We had Captain Ed - he was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We went on a 12:00 tour. We saw an alligator resting under a tree - it was Big Mama. Took 3 of our kids. They enjoyed the ride. Would definitely recommend!!!
