No - this is a great experience for all ages. Children under 6 years old will be required to wear a life jacket. The boats do tend to be loud, especially for young children, so ear protection will be available as well.

Is there a guarantee to see alligators?
It cannot be guaranteed to see alligators in the wild on the airboat tour. The captains have many years experience and are usually very good at finding them, but since they are in the wild, each tour is unique and unpredictable.
