My Swamp Tour Experience

The Tour Guide was awesome. Unfortunately, I can't recall his name but he was humorous and a risk taker too. He actually opened the side door and splashed water while throwing marshmallows saying "EC" or "TC" which he said the gators understood that mean come here. Unsure how true that is but is was entertaining to hear him call out. When the gator swam up to boat the tour guide tapped the head of the gator. The sound of that gator mouth when it closed was powerful! I enjoyed the swamp experience and I enjoyed, although a little scared, holding the baby alligator. I recommend and yes, I would do it again.
Airboat swamp tour

Had a GREAT time! Saw a lot of alligators and the captain provided a lot of educational trivia information about the alligators. He is also pretty good at driving that airboat, the wind felt great despite the heat that day.
