It was a great experience. From the moment we checked in, to spending time in the farm and the timely departure. It was a bit chilly weather, with the heavy wind, it became an adventure for sure. Strongly suggest carrying a jacket with you. Ride was super fun.

Excellente présentation de Miami par notre guide ! L’activité alligators a surpassé nos attentes: photos, rencontres avec les animaux, accueil… tout y était ! Merci encore à notre super guide pour les explications en français (pratique pour les enfants ;) )

The captain was funny. We learned a lot at the animal show. Great paths.

Awesome experience! Our guide Tanner was hilarious.

Boat captain was very informative and transparent.
