Better than I could have imagined!!!

This tour with Patrick was Amazing! We saw so many gators! I really loved how peaceful it was out on the lake when we stopped and got to see all of the cool birds! Then we stopped out in the middle and just enjoyed how quiet and beautiful it was before heading back. The best experience on our Florida trip!!! Recommending this to everyone!
Will cancel if low attendance

I bought tickets online for the evening tour and they called me just an hour or two beforehand to let me know that I can't do the tour because nobody else bought tickets. They also required you to be an entire hour early for the tour. I highly recommend Gator Airboat Rides instead. The man who runs this business is down to earth, more casual, and let me take the tour with my boyfriend even though it was just us. He also lets you hold and take photos with his pet baby alligator. I highly suggest you spend your money there rather than at this place.
Night tour was a blast
Ryan_A, Dec 2022
Captain Andrew is who we had and we could not have asked for anyone better! Very knowledgeable about his job and the environment! He answered all of our questions, was very polite, and got us right next to the gators! I would definitely do it again today if we had the time on our vacation. The night tour adds a spooky element to the gator tour. We all would rate it a 10/10! So much fun! Captain Andrew made the trip for these North Dakota folks. Thanks again.

Andy was phenomenal! He was polite, soft spoken and very knowledgeable with our random questions. Would highly recommend a night tour!

The weather wasn't cooperating and we thought we might have to cancel/reschedule but last minute the storm cleared out and we are so glad it did. Our Captain Brandon, did a fantastic job find us several gators to see, one even attacked the side of the boat. We all enjoyed the ride and would absolutely recommend this to anyone considering do it.
Incredibly exciting!

Our air boat skipper (Capt. Andy) was terrific in guiding the air boat "up close" to many alligators in everglades and with nothing but a light to see the eyes of the gators.. impressive...

Awesome tour!
Hilary_A, Jan 2022
Great experience! Our guide/airboat pilot, Tanner, is a local who has lived on Lake Togo his whole life. He was able to tell us so much about the lake and the wildlife. There were a variety of birds, including great blue herons, and we even saw a turtle swimming as we looked for gators. We saw around a dozen alligators ranging in size from 18 inches to over 6 feet! So cool!
Response from Host, Jan 2022
