This tour was well organized. Our tour guide spent a lot of time explaining all the different types of birds, fish and other inhabitants of the everglades. We were lucky to see 3 or 4 alligators. The boats have open sides and a roof. The tour guide took the time to move the boat around so everyone had a good... More

We reserved on internet and this means no veteran's rebate. You get there when you want and just wait for the next scheduled ride. Waiting area is a little confusing at first. They take your picture at the beginning . This is to prepare a non-free offer at the end of trip. Good way of getting away from high-density coastal... More

The air boat tour was the best part, although we only saw 3 small alligators. Our boat guide was pleasant. The gator show was extremely disappointing. It is very short and there is absolutely no "wow factor." The presenter we had (he is apparently known for his TV show Gator Boys) had the most unappealing humor. In addition, he was... More

Part of our family was visiting and I decided to show them the wilder side of Southeast Florida. You can take I95 to Griffin Rd. and take it far west into the Glades where the road ends and the airboats await. We arrived in the early morning before any tours started. We paid for the tour and the "Gator Boys"... More

Like in any tour, the excitement and great experience depends on your tour guide. So for this attraction, it really depends on the captain of the airboat that takes you around. I have taken this tour for 4 times and every visit is a different experience. The last one though was horrible. We had this captain that spoiled our tour,... More

Nice place to pass a 2h (or more) in a beautiful environment. We went there specially to see the gator show. We finally decided to have also the tour boat (not much difference in $... specially with the 4$ discount coupon). The boat tour took about 1h and was fun. Prior to enter in the boat, they took a picture... More
