I was in Fort Lauderdale this week for a company incentive trip and we made the trek over to Everglades Holiday Park for an encounter with the Gator Boys from Animal Planet which included pictures, an airboat ride and alligator wrestling. We paid extra to have Paul (one of the main guys) there along with Chris and Ashley. From the... More

We were really happy we chose these guys. The facilities were clean and the boats seemed newer than all the other companies'. Captain Thomson was very knowledgeable and a real salt of the earth kinda guy! We only saw one alligator, since the water was too cold, but even so, captain Thomson knew where to find him. The mangrove forest... More

I chose this company from a very competitive market due to its headsets with microphones and was very glad that I did. The operation was well-run, with the all-important clean restrooms. Captain Kenny was a local who filled us in on the area's history and wildlife. He also provided a map for a nearby drive where we got to see... More

We finished our cruise with this excursion, it was a high point to our cruise. The vistas are breathtaking and getting to see the wildlife up close was a nice feature. Though a little overcast on our visit still was great.

There are a ton of air boat operators in and around Everglades City but this one has to be one of the best. The staff is knowledgable and friendly, and with 38 years of experience Captain Thompson has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area. Unlike most of the other boats in the area that are worn and rusty, the boats... More

When seen on TV a ride through the Everglades looks like fun. After experiencing this ride it is spectacular. The wind in your face is a wonderful feeling. Alligators, turtles, fish, and birds are everywhere. This is a great trip for kids and adults of all ages.

We had a nice warm sunny day to sightsee the alligators. This was a fun tour and we saw lots of them! Some got very close to our boat. The captain threw white marshmallows into the marsh to attract the gators. ..and it worked. I was wearing a white baseball cap and sat near the edge on the boat. Some... More

We went out with Captain Thompson who has lived in the Everglades his entire life and is clearly passionate and very knowledgeable about the area. Although we didn't get to see any alligators because the water temperature had dropped due to the storm, we had a very enjoyable ride and learned a lot. We all loved the thrill of the... More
