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.

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.
