Have been guiding here since 1993. Every visit is a different experience. For visitors who can only spare about 2-3 hrs. I would recommend the Mangrove Boardwalk, Main Bridge n Main Hide. Good period to visit Aug to April it being the migration period. Time to visit from 0700-1000 or 1700-1900 where it's cooler.
Great place to go to for a 2-3 hour walk, also great place for all kinds of photographers. If you want to have an actual chance of spotting an aligator you should come during regular office hours mid-week when the crowd is smallest and wildlife gets a bit more brave. Otherwise you can still spot some amazing giant lizards, squirrels, and lots of spiders (don't worry- these are mostly st. Andrew's spiders- very good at catching flies but not venomous)
