That's right, most episodes are filmed right here in our world-famous Everglades park filled with Alligators! Everglades Holiday Park is known the world over as the best attraction in South Florida for experiencing the thrill of an exhilarating ride through this natural wonderland. Our safe airboat excursions will take you out into the open Everglades where we fly over the sea of grass, the sawgrass river. Then we stop at strategic spots to allow our guests (like you) to quietly observe the amazing alligators and other wildlife here in this pristine setting. « less

We went on Saturday 10/18. We bought our ticket and the wait to get on the airboat was only a few minutes. They appear to have enough boats to keep up with the demand. The ride was fun. We saw about a half a dozen gators. Saw a bunch of birds. The boat pilot explained what we were seeing and... More

While attending a family reunion, a group of us cousins went to this attraction. Yes, it is very touristy, but still enjoyable. The airboat ride was pretty nice, although not as "wild" as one would imagine. You are travelling down canals and maybe accelerate for only a minute or two. We did see alligators in the wild, so that was... More

We purchase our tour rather spur of the moment via Royal Caribbean Cruiseline. We were just looking for something to do between disembarking and catching our flight home as we had several hours to wait. We didn't do any research prior to booking other than read a tri-fold brochure that was given to us at the ship's information desk featuring... More

Weekends have been packed for years now, but if you can go during the week, its a good place to unwind and see nature.

As a huge Gator Boys fan i had to visit the park! We drove down from Orlando and stayed over at Fort Lauderdale. I kept my expectations low, as in an ideal world i would have loved to see Paul and Jimmy but knew that was unlikely. We visited on a thursday and it seemed to be fairly quiet which... More

We have been to Everglades Holiday Park several time now since the Gator Boys show came on Animal Planet. We have been driving to the Keys since the 70,s and never knew about this Park until the show. The airboat ride ride was awesome! The Captains are knowledgeable and funny and will stop every where for you to see some... More

My family and I loved this part of our vacation. Price was awesome and the tour guide was outstanding. It was very hot on the day we went but it didn't even matter. Experience of a lifetime. The airboat was an experience unlike any other. Lots of chances and opportunities to see the Everglades, the alligators, and other wildlife in... More

We have been watching the Gator Boys on A&E since the first season and never thought we'd have the chance to come to the Park. We took the airboat ride and gator show and we were very happy we did. Our boat captain was Captain Rich and he did a fantastic job educating us about the Everglades and the Gators... More

Captain Rich was funny and knowledgable. Was a wonderful tour. The boat was too loud though. The gator boys show was interesting and heartbreaking at the same time.

I really wanted to go on a boat ride through the Everglades during our anniversary trip to Fort Lauderdale. Everglades Holiday Park was well-rated here on TripAdvisor, so I bought tickets online and off we went. It was a windy day, and our guide did warn us that alligators preferred calm water. The boat held more than 20 people, and... More
