Leaving the main canal, we were instantly transported to a whole new ecosystem, leaving the cityscapes of Orlando a distant memory.

We spotted several baby and not-so-baby alligators, along with several bird species and more. But the highlight was when we started doing donuts in the marsh. We were literally hovering over water that was just 6 inches deep. Unreal.
