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

The airboat tour was something to experience at least once. Only saw 3 gators and several birds. Our tour guide was awesome, so funny and knowledgeable about the everglades. The show prior to the airboat ride was nice-didn't last long though. Enjoy!

We didn't really get out into the river of grass. We went on a setup path with one alligator we circled for 15 minutes. And the guide fed a bird and her chicks. If you want to a see the everglades this isn't the ride.

Be prepared to stand in line while waiting for your color or number to be called. They do not supply earplugs or headphones. The boats are covered from the sun. After the ride, you can see alligator wrestling from Animal Planet's "The Gator Boys" it's included in your admission.

Well! that's what he called himself with his Bachelors and all.... Great great morning out, we saw lots of birds, and Grumpy the 'gator. Chris put on a very educative show with the so-called 'nuisance 'gators' which was evidence of his extensive work among these and other interesting reptiles. Definitely to be done by everyone Disliked...nothing

Booked as an excursion through Royal Caribbean as part of our cruise. Just to hear those twin Cadillac 500s fire up on the airboat was a hoot. We were lucky to be the first on the water and that gave us the best chance to see some alligatos in the wild. The ride through the Everglades was 30+ minutes and... More

Capt. Rick has been running boats in the Everglades Park for 14 years. His stories leave you spellbound while viewing the beautiful Everglades National Park. This is the second time I have attended this attraction, the first being 4/2014 and had the pleasure of meeting Capt. Mike who has been in the Everglades boat system for as many years. He... More

Nice to go with kids but I wouldn't go there again. We saw a couple of alligators around the boat, and some other wild life (like birds), the guide was funny. The boat was EXTREMELY HOT inside, since the temperature was around 90s and the top of it was made of iron. The final show was not interesting and you... More
