Airboat Gator Spotting

Today we did something else we've never done before, an airboat ride through the rushes and back waters of Orlando looking for gators! We learned as we arrived that it was the first day of hunting season, as a boat along side drew up with a dead deer and 2 pigs in it - nice! We also learned that is was wise to wear sunglasses and keep your mouth shut while on the boat, as there we loads of bugs out there on the water! The ride itself lasted an hour and was a superb experience, we saw loads of wildlife (most of which we're sure the driver was aiming for), including several gators!

Nice warning, but guess you need it if you run into him!
