Awesome trip... Enjoying Nature the way it should be 😍We saw Alligators and Osprey families.. With young adults taking their first flights and others spreading their wings for practice.. Was an amazing trip and Capt Shannon was very knowledgeable about the area and animals.. 😀

Capt Bob knew just where all of the alligators and wildlife could be found. We had a great time and learned so much about the habits and habitat along with the history of the area. We’ll be back!
