I admit it, we only chose this one because of the Gator Boys, but it was worth it. The airboat ride was an hour long and was both fun (with high speed runs) and very informative at the same time. The boats are covered, but that helped keep the noise down (no ear plugs needed). The gator show was fun... More

This is a must do! Ralph picked us up right from our hotel and drove us to the Everglades. The airboat ride was awesome and our tour guy Larry was the best! You see beautiful nature, birds, and we got to see a gator. I have a new love for alligators. After the boat ride you can see a decent... More

Great place to ride to or drive to. If you want to see wild life, this is the place to go. Nice outdoor scenery, and you will always see a gator or two.

My family and I enjoyed visiting the park. Even though on our airboat ride we did not get to see any alligators it was still fun. The show the Gator Boys put on made up for it. A great family place to visit when in the Fort Lauderdale vacinity.

In July, we went on an airboat ride with Captain Rick Reda. My children enjoyed their trip through the Everglades. They learned so much, that my 6th grader wrote an information report on alligators and also gave an oral presentation to her class on her airboat adventures with Captain Rick. Our day at Everglades Holiday Park was priceless!

This turned out to be a pleasant surprise for me. My husband took it upon himself to get us tickets to this park while vacationing in Florida. I had no idea what to expect. We took an airboat ride in the Everglades. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and funny. He stopped the boat a couple of times where he... More

This was our first airboat ride. We had a great time mostly due to Captain Dillon. He was funny and informative, and that's what made it a great activity. So many activities we do on vacation the employees seem to be just going through the motions, not Captain Dillon, he made us feel welcome and an important part of the... More

Thought it was a bit overrated. Nice enough but I did expect a more. The airboat was good though a little crowded and basically just whizzed around up and down the water without much stopping stopping to see specific wildlife

This was a great tour the airboat ride was a lot of fun, and it was great to see alligators in their natural habitat, the hour goes so quickly it would be nice to spend a bit more time out on the Everglades the captains are very informative, the alligator show was a disappointment not something we would see again.

The airboat ride was fun. We saw alligators, blue heron, and some other flora and fauna. Great activity with young and old.
