You can even book an airboat tour during the night, to see nightlife in its natural state.
Or arrange a private tour, the standard 30 minute ride is twice as long.

Many were actually surprised by the closeness to the gators and were found to be knowledgeable and amusing by their tour guides.
What made some visitors uncomfortable (besides being an arm from gates) is the little dirty cages in which the animals of the attraction live. The only thing that makes them uncomfortable.

Together with the ride, you can also explore several exhibits of wildlife, including those living in reptiles and other exotic creatures.
