  • Pretty nice place to hike around, but extremely difficult to find your way in and also find a place to park. And be careful of the Gators
  • Absolutely wonderful little Nature Preserve, miles of trails and areas for fishing boating and horse riding
  • This was the most fun and educational experience I have had with my family while at Hilton head. The Alligator tour was amazing and captain Anthony was the best. He is determined to make sure that you and your family have the best time you can have. He is also the very passionate about the wildlife which make the experience a whole lot more fun. I would recommend to anyone and the family and would come back to visit again.
  • It was an alright walking trail. We ended up walking on the driving path as we could not locate the actual designed walking trail.
  • The tour guide Anthony was very professional and personable. The tour was very educational as well as entertaining. He made my 7 year old nephew Wesley feel very special. I highly recommend this tour to everyone that visits Hilton Head. I know I will do it again the next time I visit the island.
