Definitely recommend the small boat experience. You can go into tighter spots than on the bigger boats.

The boat ride was a lot of fun, unfortunately it was too short, it’s advertised as 2 hours but it was only 1.5 hours and a lot of the time it was stopped and just talking and nothing to do with the swamp. It also had instructions on the back of the seats about how to wear a life jacket but not a single life jacket on the boat. I think they should reduce the trip to 1 hour and change less and just stick to talking about the boat and the swamp.

We are sorry that the experience was not what you expected. We are not sure where you read that our tour is two hours, but our brochures and website clearly indicate that the tours are 1 hour and 40 minutes long. Also, the life jackets are definitely on the boat, under the seat cushion, as it is a Coast Guard regulation.

Our guide knew right where to go so we could see the wildlife. He got us up close and even had some goodies so we could feed the alligators. We had a great time.
