It was really obvious how much our tour guide loved what he was doing. He had an amazing quality for calling the alligators closer to the boat so we could have a good look. He also was loaded with information and was very knowledgeable and a resident.

The boat driver was well informed and a bit of a story teller. The alligators, turtles, and herons that we spotted were usually pretty close to our boat, which made for some great pictures.
