Florida Tour Guide Captures Rare Saltwater Run-In With Alligator on Camera
"Don't Fall in!" Tour Guide Spots Alligator in Gulf of Mexico
A Marco Island tour guide captured an unusual sight on Monday, September 17, after spotting an alligator in the Gulf of Mexico.
Brian Scuderi working for Marco Island Water Sports captured this video of the alligator while leading a tour group on a wave runner tour of the Gulf of Mexico resort. Scuderi and guests discussed whether it was a salt water crocodile, which are known to live in southern Florida, or an alligator out of its normal freshwater habitat, before the the gator made a dramatic exit.
Scuderi said he’d never seen anything similar in his 11 years on the job.
